Memorable Manitobans: Henry William Greene (1884-1944)

Architect.

Born at the Straits Settlements (Singapore) on 17 January 1884, he moved to London, England before 1900. He emigrated to Western Canada in 1901 and farmed for a time then came to Winnipeg and worked as a draftsman for two local architectural firms, Jordan & Over and J. D. Atchison & Company, opening his own architectural office in the McIntyre Block in March 1904. On 13 April 1905, he married Gladys Joy Kempton at Winnipeg and they had five children over the next 11 years, two being born in Manitoba and three born in the United States. Greene moved to Hollywood, California in 1922 where he apparently continued to work as an architect. He died at Los Angeles on 21 May 1944.
