Memorable Manitobans: Auguste Henri de Trémaudan (1874-1929)

Journalist, historian.

Born at Saint-Chrysostome, Quebec on 14 July 1874, he was educated in France, returning to Canada in 1893. He founded The Herald at The Pas in 1911, and then ran several other Francophone newspapers. During the 1920s he published extensively on Louis Riel and the Red River Rebellion, based chiefly on access he was given to unpublished Riel papers. He was employed by the Union Nationale Métisse Saint-Joseph to write the Histoire de la Nation Métisse, which was completed in 1929 and published in 1936. He died at Los Angeles, California on 29 October 1929, where he had retired for his health in 1924. He is commemorated by the Tremaudan siding on the Wekusko Subdivision of the Hudson Bay Railway.
