Memorable Manitobans: Lawrence Adne Stuckey (1921-2001)

Railroader, photographer, historian.

Born at Brandon in 1921, son of Adne and Catherine Stuckey, he was educated at Fleming School, Earl Oxford School, and Brandon Collegiate. In May 1941, he began working as a fireman with the Canadian Pacific Railway but left in October 1942 to join the Royal Canadian Air Force, serving as a navigator and bomb aimer. After the Second World War, he returned to Western Manitoba, and to the CPR. He was promoted to fireman-engineer in 1950.

In January 1958, he purchased the Clark-Smith Photo Studio in Brandon. Stuckey and his wife Mildred Mavis Stuckey (1924-1999), who he married in 1946, ran the studio until their retirement in the mid-1980s. He was a member of the Brandon Stamp Club, Allied Arts Council, Brandon Horticultural Society, Brandon Model Railroad Club, Assiniboine Historical Society, and Fort Whyte Centre. In 1987, he was appointed to the Manitoba Order of the Buffalo Hunt and, in 1997, he received an honorary Doctorate of Laws Degree from Brandon University.

He died at Brandon on 13 June 2001 and was buried in the Brandon Cemetery. His collection of historical photographs is held at the S. J. McKee Archives.
