Memorable Manitobans: George Thomas Chapman (1899-1985)

Lawyer, judge.

Born in the Rural Municipality of Assiniboia on 2 January 1899, son of George Thomas Chapman and and Catherine Mary Bourke, he articled in law in 1921 and formed his own law practice in the St. James area of Winnipeg. He was made a King’s Counsel in 1949. He was later appointed a judge of the citizenship court. In 1967, he was inducted into the Manitoba Order of the Buffalo Hunt. He died in 1985 after 62 continuous years of law practice.
