Memorable Manitobans: Woodrow Bennett (?-1990)

Community activist.

Born at San Francisco, California, he met his future wife, Winnipegger Mary Bennett (1933-2000) in 1963, and returned with her to Winnipeg in 1970. He was employed with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. After retirement, he became active in community activities including the North Point Douglas Residents Committee, West Kildonan Community Committee, and Main Street Revitalization Group. In 1982, he was appointed to the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba. He died at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital on 14 June 1990.
