Memorable Manitobans: James Malcolm Carmichael (1885-1931)

Educator, lawyer, municipal official.

Born in Ontario on 4 May 1885, son of Reverend John Alexander Carmichael and Cornelia Rowse (1848-1944), he accompanied his parents to Saskatchewan before moving to Manitoba. On 7 February 1912, he married Lucy Gertrude McVey (1889-1955, remarried to Edward H. King) at Winnipeg and the couple had a son, John Alexander Malcolm Carmichael (1913-?). He was the Principal of Emerson School (1917-1918) and Polson School (1918-1919) before transitioning to a legal practise at Erickson and serving as the Secretary-Treasurer for the Rural Municipality of Clanwilliam (c1929-1931). While a passenger in a car driving from Winnipeg to Erickson on 8 December 1931, he became ill and unconscious, and was subsequently pronounced dead. He was buried in the Kildonan Presbyterian Cemetery.
