Memorable Manitobans: Claude W. Gray (c1880-1937)

Sculptor.

Born in London, England, he immigrated to Manitoba in 1902 and won a gold medal that year for displays at the Winnipeg Industrial Fair. Before World War One he worked for photographic studios, probably as a colour retoucher, and (from 1910) for the Canadian Pacific Railway in the drafting department. He enlisted in the army, and after demobilization he set up a studio across the street from the Winnipeg School of Art. He worked in many media, although he became most interested in sculpture, winning some national attention but little financial reward.
