Memorable Manitobans: James Woodside (c1892-?)


Born in Ireland around 1892, son of Alexander Woodside, he earned BA and BSc degrees from Trinity College at Dublin, Ireland before immigrating to Canada in 1920. His parents settled at Oakburn and he worked in Winnipeg as a draftsman before taking teacher training, after which he was Principal of Oakburn School (1922-1924) and Dominion City School (1924-1925). On 10 July 1923, he married Gladys Alma Bogie (1895-?) at the parsonage of St. John’s Methodist Church in Winnipeg. His whereabouts after 1925 are unknown.
