Memorable Manitobans: Phillip Arthur Jackson (1881-1960)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born at Palmerston, Ontario on 27 November 1881, son of James Jackson and Mary Ann Hall, he came to Manitoba as a boy, with his parents, and settled on a farm near Griswold. He farmed in the district for many years, retiring in 1941 when he moved to Winnipeg. Active in municipal politics, he served as a Councillor and Reeve, and Mayor of Oak Lake (1930-1932). He died at Winnipeg on 14 April 1960 and was buried in the Griswold Cemetery.
