Memorable Manitobans: James Arthur Hall (c1923-1994)


Born at Cavell, Saskatchewan around 1923, son of Robert Hall and Olive Hall, he embarked upon a career in education. He taught three years in Saskatchewan before moving to Winnipeg in 1955, where he joined the Winnipeg School Division. He then worked at Andrew Mynarski VC Junior High School (1955-1956) and Gladstone School (1956-1965) prior to being Principal of St. Joseph’s Vocational School (1965-1971). He relocated to Steinbach and taught at Woodlawn School (1971-1987) until retiring, then moving to Tuxedo. He was a member of the All Saint’s Anglican Church, lay reader, volunteer, and active with the Anglican Diocesan Book Room. He and his wife, Florence, had no children. He died at the St. Boniface Hospital on 24 February 1994 and was buried in the Green Acres Memorial Gardens.
