Memorable Manitobans: Clara G. Walsh (1872-?)

Educator.

Born in England on 10 February 1872, daughter of Jane Walsh (1849-?), she immigrated with her family to Canada in 1892 and settled at Winnipeg. She attended the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute and Central Normal School, earned a BA degree from the University of Manitoba, and obtained her first class diploma and professional first class certificates in 1890. As a teacher in the Winnipeg School Division, she worked at Carlton School (1891-1894) and Fort Rouge School where she taught (1899-1900) and was Principal (1900-1901) before returning to the classroom at the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute (1901-1903). She taught Sunday School at the Young Methodist Church and was Treasurer for the YWCA (1903). She resigned her teaching position in July 1903, after which her whereabouts are unknown.
