Memorable Manitobans: Mary Anderson Hislop (1846-1928)

Author.

Born at Toronto, Ontario on 22 June 1846, and educated at Orillia and Barrie, she came to Winnipeg with her husband Charles Hislop in 1883. She had five children, including Helen Hislop. She was the first President of the Women’s Missionary Society of Westminster Church and she founded the first employment bureau for women in the city. In 1912 she wrote the book The Streets of Winnipeg describing the history of city street names. She died at the Winnipeg home of one of her daughters on 25 May 1928 and was buried in the St. James Cemetery.
