Memorable Manitobans: Hugh Arthur Johnson (1910-1967)

Educator.

Born at Winnipegosis on 10 July 1910, he was educated at Winnipegosis School and Brandon Collegiate. He taught school at various places in rural Manitoba starting at a country school near his home, then at Justice School, Baldur School, and Cartwright School (1959-1967). He was the Principal of Isabella School (1941-1943), Holmfield School (1943-1959), and Cartwright School (1961-1962). Prolonged ill health forced his retirement in May 1967. He died at Brandon, unmarried, on 22 June 1967 and was buried in the Holmfield Cemetery.
