Memorable Manitobans: Rupert Finleyson Inkster (1874-1930)

Civil servant.

Born on 19 May 1874, son of Colin Inkster, he was educated at Winnipeg public schools and St. John’s College. After graduation he took up banking and was manager of the Northern Crown Bank and the Bank of Montreal. He worked for the federal immigration department at Winnipeg. In 1923 he was appointed deputy sheriff of Manitoba and, five years later, he took over his father’s position as Sheriff of the High Court of the Eastern Judicial District. He died at Winnipeg on 7 July 1930.
