Memorable Manitobans: Donald Ephriam Carrothers (1910-1988)


Born at Austin on 30 January 1910, son of T. J. Carrothers and Etta May Giles, he was instrumental in the establishment of the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame, preventing the loss of old farm equipment that would otherwise have been used as a source of metal during the Second World War. In 1970, he was awarded a Manitoba Centennial Medal by the Manitoba Historical Society. He married Muriel Elizabeth Tattersall (1915-2009) and they had two daughters. He died in 1988 and was buried in the Austin Cemetery.
