Memorable Manitobans: Frederick John Gould (1870-1967)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born in England on 1 October 1870, he emigrated to Canada in 1881, coming to Manitoba around 1889. He lived at Bradwardine, Oakner, Lenore and Harding, working with the United Grain Growers cooperatives and agricultural societies. He served as Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Woodworth for 44 years, from 1918 to 1962. In 1966, he was given a Manitoba Golden Boy Award in recognition of his community service. He died on 24 April 1967.
