Memorable Manitobans: Pioneers and Prominent People of Manitoba

This collection of biographies of Manitobans was compiled by the Canadian Publicity Company, and published at Winnipeg in 1925. Most of those featured in the book were living at that time, so no information on death dates was provided. Where possible, these have been added to this online version. An introduction to the history of Manitoba, written by librarian W. J. Healy, has been omitted.

Foreward

Prominent People is designed by the publishers to provide arecord of the men and women who, in one capacity or another, are contributing to and making possible the growth and development of Manitoba. In former times the history of a country could be traced in the biographies of its great men; but in these days of democratic institutions and universal franchise, the true history of a country is the record of the masses, for it is the masses who, through their representatives and by their individual services and sacrifices, give to a country a noble or ignoble place among the nations.

Public memories, sometimes, are short-lived, and history records only the names of those who stand out most prominently in the great events of the times. The aim of Prominent People is to create a lasting memorial not only for the great men, but also for those lesser personages in all walks of life who, by their toil and sacrifices, are laboring for the advancement of Manitoba, and are the real moulders of its destiny. The publication of such a work is especially appropriate at this time to commemorate the services rendered both at home and abroad by so many of our men and women during the recent Great War, in the interests of the Empire and the cause of democracy throughout the world.

The publishers of this work are especially anxious to point to the large number of native sons of Manitoba in its pages; to their affiliation with its Colleges, University and Schools, and to the officers and men who served and achieved distinction in the European War.

In its pages will be found descendants of the early Hudson’s Bay Company’s officers, the Kildonan Settlers, men who came with the Wolseley Expedition, pioneer farmers of the early 1870s and ‘80s, pioneers and early settlers of its different localities.

This book is not designed as a work of praise, but of facts. One’s education, professional or business training and experiences, and status in the community are facts which no man or woman should hesitate to see in print, and which the public have a right to know.

The book will have a value for the historian quite beyond its use as a current work of reference. It is hoped it will do its part in making all the sons and daughters of this province better known to each other, and will give a bird’s-eye view of their usefulness and contribution to the confederated provinces of the Dominion.

Considerable care has been taken to secure accuracy, but if mistakes occur – as they are liable to occur in a work of this nature – we shall be grateful if they are called to our attention so that they may be rectified in future editions.
