Memorable Manitobans: Charles Henry O'Donoghue (1885-1961)

Zoologist.

He studied at King’s College in London and obtained a BSc degree in Zoology from the University of London. He then held an assistantship at University College in London. Between 1912 and 1913, he studied in Germany before returning to University College as Senior Assistant in Zoology. In November 1917, he accepted an invitation to come to Winnipeg to become Head of the Zoology Department at the University of Manitoba, serving in the position for nine years. During that time, he succeeded Reginald Buller as the University’s representative on the Biological Board of Canada, spending five summers at the Marine Biological Station at Nanaimo, British Columbia. Also interested in freshwater biology, he conducted two expeditions to Jasper National Park between 1925 and 1927. He accepted a position at the University of Edinburgh in 1927, apparently to further the education of his two children.
