Memorable Manitobans: Melvin S. Blanchard (?-?)

Educator.

He graduated with a BA degree from Queen’s University in Ontario, and worked 12 years at the Ontario School for the Blind (later renamed W. Ross Macdonald School) at Brantford, Ontario, teaching in the Junior Department for three years, the Senior Department for eight years, and one year as a vocational agriculture teacher. In 1935, he came to Manitoba as Superintendent (1935-1940) of the Manitoba School for the Deaf. His later whereabouts are unknown.
