Memorable Manitobans: Hyman Yewdall (1879-1947)

Fur merchant.

Born at Leeds, Yorkshire, England on 25 December 1879, son of Moses and Bertha Yewdall, he came to Manitoba in 1910 and engaged in the fur business. In 1921 he formed the Winnipeg Fur Auction Sales Company, of which he was Vice-President and General Manager. Fur sales were held in Winnipeg several times each year, the largest fur sales in Canada; in 1925, the year’s sales totalled $800,000, buyers coming from all over Canada, Europe and United States. On 23 November 1910, he married Kate Rosen Goldstein (1882-1956). He adopted the two children by his wife’s deceased first husband, Sigmund Goldstein. They also had two daughters of their own: Doba Yewdall (1921-2001, wife of Albert M. Goldberg) and Marsha Yewdall (1913-1914). He was a Conservative candidate for the Rupertsland constituency in the 1927 provincial general election. He left Canada in the late 1930s and died in California on 31 July 1947.
