Memorable Manitobans: A. L. Hall (1864-?)

Business manager.

Born at Hemmingford, Quebec in September 1864, son of Marshall and Elizabeth Hall, he was educated at Ontario public schools until the age of 18 when, in February 1882, he came to Manitoba and homesteaded for 15 years. He later operated a 3,000-acre ranch near Brandon until 1898 when he entered the insurance business, becoming Inspector (1900) and later Manager (1910) of the Imperial Life Insurance Company at Brandon. In 1891 he married Isabella A. Touchborne at Brandon. They had four daughters: Florence Hall, Helen Hall, Beatrice Hall, and Marian Hall. The family resided at 360 Eighth Street.
