Memorable Manitobans: Herbert Thomas Reynolds (c1885-1951)


Born at Willinhall, England around 1885, he came to Canada in 1909 and received degrees in Arts (1915) and Theology (1916) from Wesley College. Ordained as a minister in the Methodist (later United) Church, he worked at Brandon Hills, Miniota, Arden, Swan River, Alexander, Rapid City, Starbuck United Church, Petrel, Zion United Church at Cardale (1941-1947), and Teulon United Church. On 5 July 1916, he married Sadie Mae Baker (1894-1981) of Brandon and they had six children: Dorothy Reynolds, George Reynolds, Norman Reynolds, Herbert Reynolds, Gordon Victor Reynolds, and Kenneth Reynolds. He wrote articles for The United Church Observer and a novel entitled The Unquenched Flax: A Story of Western Canada (c1931). He died at the Misericordia Hospital on 3 October 1951 and was buried in the Brookside Cemetery.
