Memorable Manitobans: Richard Allan “Dick” Johnson

Engineer, educator.

He was the first graduate in Engineering Physics from the University of Manitoba and joined the Department of Electrical Engineering in 1955. Having served as Head from 1972 to 1977, he moved to the senior academic administration of the University in 1977. He retired in 1997 as Vice-Provost, and is now a Senior Scholar. His first recollections of the Broadway site date back to about 1940 when he went there with his father, Professor Skuli Johnson, then Head of the Classics Department.

His articles for the Manitoba Historical Society:
