Memorable Manitobans: David M. Copp (c1896-1984)


Born in Russia, he came to Canada as a small boy. In February 1915, he joined his brother-in-law Edward Mitchell in the jewellery business. Their Mitchell-Copp Jewellers became the largest independent jewellery store in Canada. He died at Winnipeg on 26 January 1984 and was buried in Shaarey Zedek Cemetery.
