Memorable Manitobans: Victor Henry Llewellyn Wyatt (1912-1993)

Educator, administrator.

Born at Winnipeg on 25 December 1912, son of Harry Wyatt and Martha Bullen, first cousin of W. H. Van Sickle, he was educated at Norberry School and the University of Manitoba, and later worked as a teacher in the St. Vital School Division, with his first job at Windsor School. He served as the Principal of Norberry School (1951-1957), along with three other schools in the Division, and later was Superintendent of the Division from 1957 to retirement in 1972. He was active in the Manitoba Teachers’ Society. In recognition of his community service, he received the Centennial Medal (1967), City of Winnipeg Community Service Award (1973), and honorary memberships in the Manitoba Teachers’ Society and the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents. He died at Winnipeg on 4 December 1993 and was buried in the St. Vital Cemetery. He is commemorated by Victor Wyatt School, opened in 1979.
