MHS Archives: Manitoba Pageant

Manitoba PageantThe Society’s award-winning magazine Manitoba Pageant was introduced in 1956 as a compliment to Transactions. Both were succeeded in 1980 by our journal Manitoba History. The magazine contains a wealth of information on topics of interest to a wide range of readers. Selections from Pageant were reprinted in the early 1990s as Pioneer Life and Manitoba Personalities. These collections may be purchased from the MHS Office.

The contents of each issue of Manitoba Pageant are listed below.
