Memorable Manitobans: Alexander Kamloops Black (1832-1913)

MLA (1876-1878).

Born in 1832 at Île-à-la-Crosse, North West Territories in 1832, the son of fur trader Samuel Black (1780-1841) and his “country wife” Angelique Cameron, he was elected to a seat in the Manitoba Legislature in November 1876, in a by-election necessitated by the death of C. J. Bird. He served a single term. He died at San Francisco, California on 14 December 1913.
