Memorable Manitobans: Clinton Artz Congdon (1891-1983)

Boot and shoe merchant.

Born at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia on 26 May 1891, son of Harris S. Congdon, he came to Winnipeg where he worked as a travelling salesman for the wholesale boot and shoe firm of Congdon Marsh Limited, eventually rising to become its President. During the First World War, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and served overseas. On 15 October 1919, he married Edith Blanche Congdon (1892-1979, daughter of Arthur Congdon) and they had two children. He was a member of the Northwest Commercial Travellers Association, a founding member of the Outlook Club of Winnipeg, and a member of the Board for Westminster United Church. He died at North Vancouver, British Columbia on 1 November 1983 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
