Memorable Manitobans: Herman Saltzman (?-?)
Civil engineer, political activist.
A Russian Jewish immigrant, he received a degree in civil engineering from the University of Manitoba and was a Labour candidate for the Winnipeg North constituency in the 1914 provincial general election. He was living in Winnipeg in early 1917 but his whereabouts after this time are unknown.
