Memorable Manitobans: John Inglis (1858-?)

Banker, businessman.

Born at Dunfermline, Scotland on 15 March 1858, son of James Inglis and Catherine Scotland, he worked for the City of Glasgow Bank after finishing his education. When the bank closed in 1879 he worked briefly for the Clydesdale Bank then was engaged by the Merchants Bank of Canada in Montreal. He arrived in Canada in 1882 and worked for the Bank of Montreal for ten years, most of the time as a member of the inspector's staff. He was sent to Brandon on bank business in 1892 and, soon after, resigned to open a business selling agricultural implements. He served two terms as President of the Brandon Board of Trade, and a treasurer of the Brandon Hospital. He was a member of the Brandon Club and the Sons of Scotland.
