Memorable Manitobans: Peter Lawrence Hyde (1884-1962)

Educator, merchant, accountant.

Born in the Rural Municipality of Silver Creek on 24 April 1884, son of Scottish immigrants Peter Hyde and Margaret Forbes, he was educated at Silver Creek School and Russell School and received a teaching diploma from the Portage la Prairie Normal School. He then taught at Strathport, Swan Lake School, Kelloe School, and Lidford School for six years, then quit to attend a business college at Winnipeg. After completing his studies, he took a job with a wholesale fruit company where he stayed until establishing a general store at Silverton in 1910. He later worked in real estate and accountancy at Winnipeg. On 30 May 1912, he married Nellie Blanche Hainstock of Kelloe. They had two children: Annie Margaret Hyde (b 1914) and Vernon Hyde (b 1917). He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. He moved to British Columbia in 1945 and died at Vancouver on 6 March 1962.
