Memorable Manitobans: William McLean Eadie (1868-1935)

Educator.

Born at Kelvin, Norfolk County, Ontario on 25 October 1868, son of William McLaws Eadie (1837-1898) and Charlotte Hedgers (1846-1930), he worked as a public school teacher prior to marrying to Harriet Jane Banks (1868-1960) at Edge Hill, Ontario on 2 August 1893. They had six children: Nelson Burns Eadie (1894-1917), Evelin Eadie (1899-1901), Lillian Mae Eadie (1903-1977, wife of Mr. Lightfoot), Charles Wilfred Eadie (1904-1950), Genevieve Eadie (1906-1976), and Delight Harriet Eadie (1909-1971, wife of Mr. Daniel). After teaching in Ontario, he spent time in rural Manitoba classrooms as Principal of Oakwood School (1911-1913, where Harriet also taught) and Melita School (1915-1916). He died in 1935 and was buried in the Zion Glenelg Community Cemetery in Grey County, Ontario.
