Memorable Manitobans: Frank Trafford Taylor (1891-1943)

Lawyer.

Born at Hamilton, Ontario in 1891, son of William Henry Taylor and Anne Hoare-Trafford, he was educated at the University of Toronto and the University of Manitoba. In 1922, he was appointed solicitor for the City of St. Boniface, holding the position until his death. He was also solicitor for the Manitoba Power Commission. He was made a King’s Counsel in 1934.

He was married twice, first on 14 October 1914 to Agnes Buchannan Morrison (?-1928). They had two children: Tafford Morrison Taylor and Jean Taylor. He later remarried, to Lilian Long, in 1935. His recreations included tennis, shooting, and horticulture. He was founder and first President of the St. Boniface Kiwanis Club. In 1937, he became International President of the Kiwanis, only the second Canadian to hold the position.

He died at his Winnipeg home on 1 November 1943 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
