Memorable Manitobans: Beatrice Maude Bradshaw (1885-1972)


Born at Guelph, Ontario on 31 July 1885, her family moved near Morden in 1891. Her teaching career began at Morden, and continued at Deloraine School and Lauder School (1907-1908) before she joined the staff of the Winnipeg School District. After teaching at Strathcona School (1908-1910), she became Principal of Cecil Rhodes School (1911-1913). She left the employ of the Board in 1913, then returned to teaching at Machray School, from 1914 to 1922, leaving there to become Principal of the newly-opened David Livingstone School. In 1929, she became Primary Supervisor for the District, with special emphasis on the education of handicapped children. She retired in June 1946 and lived alternately at the University Women’s Club, Florida, and Jamaica. She died at Winnipeg, unmarried, on 25 March 1972. She was an aunt to David Bradshaw Stewart.
