Memorable Manitobans: Joseph Oscar Boily (1909-?)

Cleric, educator.

Born at La Broquerie, Manitoba on 30 June 1909, son of Roger Boily and Alphonsine Boisjoli, he attended St. Boniface College before joining the Jesuit Order in 1929. After completing his studies at the Jesuit Seminary at Montreal, he was appointed to the teaching staff of St. Boniface College, rising to become Dean of Studies in Arts and Science (1952) and Rector (1954-1960). He stepped down as Rector to supervise construction of new college buildings.
