Memorable Manitobans: Claude Percy Banning (1877-1944)

Dental surgeon.

Born in 1877, son of lumberman W. W. Banning, he attended Winnipeg public schools and received a degree in dental surgery from Northwestern University (Chicago). For many years he was secretary of the Medical Arts building. On 20 June 1907, he married Florence Hattie Ashdown (1878-1976), daughter of James H. Ashdown. They had two children: William James Banning (1910-?) and Elizabeth Banning (?-?, wife of W. G. Clough). He was a member of the Winnipeg Badminton Club, Winnipeg Winter Club, St. Charles Country Club, Elmhurst Golf Club, and St. Stephen’s-Broadway Church. He died at his Winnipeg home, 697 Wellington Crescent, on 11 June 1944 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
