Memorable Manitobans: Clarence C. Balfour (c1881-1954)

Banker, brewer.

Born at Quebec City, he received his early education at Montreal. In 1897 he joined the Union Bank of Canada and held positions at Montreal, Toronto, and St. Catharines before coming to Winnipeg in 1920. Four years later, he became chief accountant for the bank and, with the amalgamation of the Union and Royal Banks, he became accountant in the supervisor's department, retiring in 1940. At that point, he became associated with the brewing firm of Drewry's Limited. He was a member of the Manitoba Club, St. Charles Country Club, and All Saints Anglican Church. He died at Victoria, British Columbia on 10 April 1954.
