Memorable Manitobans: Richmond Goulden (1871-1955)


Born at Stockport, England on 2 August 1871, son of James Henry Oswald Goulden and Dinah Peers, he trained as a physician in England before coming to Canada in 1904 and establishing a medical practice at Tyndall. During the First World War, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and served overseas as a Medical Officer with a combat unit. He was discharged with the rank of Captain and returned to Manitoba, where he became a psychiatrist at the Brandon Hospital for Mental Diseases. In the Second World War, he was a surgeon aboard troop ships. On his return to Canada, he joined the medical staff at the Verdun Protestant Hospital at Montreal, from which he retired in 1946. He and wife Lavinia Elizabeth Sergent had two sons and a daughter. He moved to Prince Rupert, British Columbia in 1953 and died there on 18 February 1955.
