Memorable Manitobans: Andrew Crawford “Andy” Tough (1921-2016)

Lawyer.

Born at Dufftown, Scotland on 5 November 1921, he grew up in nearby Fraserburgh and graduated from the Fraserburgh Academy in 1940. He served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, training at Moose Jaw (Saskatchewan) and Neepawa. On returning to Scotland, he earned a law degree from the Aberdeen Law School (1949) and practiced until immigrating to Canada in 1956. He returned to the practice of law in 1961, joining the firm of Thorvaldson, Eggertson, Saunders and Mauro at Winnipeg and was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1963. The firm merged with Aikins MacAulay in 1969. He retired in 1998.
