Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Rutherford Hogg (1861-1937)

Educator, printer, barber.

Born near Walkerton, Ontario on 23 February 1861, son of John Hogg (c1832-?) and Marion Hogg (c1828-?), he became a teacher, attained a second-class teaching certificate, and worked in Ontario before moving West. On 19 March 1884, he married Charlotte “Lottie” Lewis (1859-1923) at Hanover. They had five children: Thomas “Tommy” Hogg (1887-1888), William Charles “Willie” Hogg (1889-1891), Russell Ivan Hogg (1895-1961, husband of of Arlie Emma Harrison), Dr. John “Jack” Hogg (1897-?), and Nellie Marion Hogg (1898-?, wife of Albert C. Mills).

In 1890, the family moved to Manitoba and he taught near Alexander and was the Principal of Oakwood School (1891-1893). He next purchased and operated a barbershop for several years. His next venture was in the printing industry some point prior to 1911, having acquired a press and began printing Oak Lake News (later managed by his daughter-in-law Arlie E. H. Hogg). He returned to teaching from 1917 to 1929, after which he retired. He was a life member of the Masons, IOOF, and the United Church. He died at the Regina (Saskatchewan) residence of his daughter on 13 January 1937 and his body was returned to Manitoba for burial in the Oak Lake Cemetery.
