Memorable Manitobans: Frank William Chalmers (c1944-2006)


He grew up at Winnipeg Beach and began a career in journalism in the late 1960s, spending most of his time with the Winnipeg Tribune. He was said to have a talent for capturing emotion and irony that connected readers to the story. After the closure of the Tribune in 1980, he was one of the founding editors of the Winnipeg Sun. His photography was featured in many newspapers and magazines including Life and National Geographic. He died at Winnipeg on 30 January 2006.
