Memorable Manitobans: Frank Tennenhouse (1922-2010)

Farmer, educator.

Born at Winnipeg on 9 January 1922, the youngest of 12 children of Morris Tennenhouse and Annie Stein, who had homesteaded in the New Hirsch Colony near Camper, Manitoba from 1911 to 1923, his father rented land in Old Kildonan and later bought land at Stony Mountain in 1933. He and two brothers expanded the farm from a 160-acre subsistence farm to a 2,500-acre operation. Following military service during the Second World War, he received a degree in agriculture from the University of Manitoba. He taught agricultural engineering at the University in the winter, serving for 35 years, and farmed in the summer. He wrote “75 Years of Farming”, the story of his family’s farming activities from 1911 to 1988, a copy of which is held at the University of Manitoba Archives. He retired to Victoria, British Columbia in 1989, where he died on 30 January 2010.
