Memorable Manitobans: Isaac A. Robinson (1860-?)

Real estate and insurance agent.

Born at Blenheim, Ontario on 6 June 1860, son of Henry and Julia A. Robinson, he worked at a bank owned by his father in Leamington, Ontario before coming to Manitoba in 1890. In 1899, he organized the Empire Brewing Company at Brandon and operated it for six years as Managing Director. He quit the company in 1906 and opened a real estate and financial agency. On 15 May 1907 he married Mabel Evans, eldest daughter of Ezekiel Evans, at Brandon. He was a member of the Brandon Club and the Anglican Church. He served on the executive committee of the Publicity Bureau of Brandon and held a life governorship for the Brandon General Hospital.
