Memorable Manitobans: Alonzo Cyrus Crosby (1853-1923)

Educator.

Born at Uxbridge, Ontario on 30 May 1853, son of George Crosby and Pennock “Anna” Crosby, he married Bertha Adelaide McMullen (1853-?) and had a son, Clarence Crosby (1888-?). At the turn of the twentieth century, he resided at Stratford, Ontario and worked as a government agent before moving to Manitoba sometime around 1906. He became a public school teacher and served as the Principal of MacKenzie School (1907-1909) and Russell School (1912-1913). By 1916, he was a public school Principal at Wetaskiwin, Alberta. He died at Sudbury, Ontario on 21 December 1923.
