Educator.

Born in the Rural Municipality of Rosser on 4 October 1914, son of Robert Clague (c1887-?) and Margaret Jane Collister (c1884-?), he earned BA Honours (History and English) and MA degrees from University of Manitoba where his 1939 MA thesis was entitled “The political aspects of the Manitoba school question, 1890-96.” He taught in the Winnipeg School Division at Knowles School (Principal, 1941-1942), Churchill High School (1955-1958), and General Wolfe School (1958-1965). A mathematician and author, he wrote the math-related “Trapping the Transversals” as well as two books on religion, including “Hear, O Israel: An Introduction to the Old Testament” (1992). His pastimes included writing poetry, gardening, music, reading, and research on a wide range of topics. He died at the Middlechurch Home on 11 October 2006.
