Memorable Manitobans: Mary Christie (c1850-1922)

Educator.

Born near Martintown, Glengarry County, Ontario, she came to Manitoba in 1882 and taught school at Oakland, where her only pupil was T. L. Metcalfe. Later that same year, she moved to Winnipeg and joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Board. She taught at Carlton School before becoming the Principal of Fort Rouge School in 1902, serving in the position until late 1910, when she was given a leave of absence. She died at Winnipeg on 12 May 1922 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
