Historic Sites of Manitoba: Paul Hiebert Memorial (Carman)

Dr. Paul Hiebert was a chemistry professor at the University of Manitoba who became a nationally recognized author. He won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour in 1947 with his first book Sarah Binks, a Canadian bestseller. He wrote its sequel Willows Revisited in 1967. He was one of Canada’s major humorists with his tongue-in-cheek humour that satirized prairie life and social pretensions. Some of his other books included Tower in Siloam, Doubting Castle, and Not As the Scribes. He built his house on the site of this cairn in the 1930s, using it as a cottage until retirement, when it became his permanent home. The building was later demolished.
