Memorable Manitobans: Frederick Leach (1892-1982)

Educator, missionary.

Born at London, England on 4 July 1892, he studied at Ealing College before coming to Canada to join the Oblate Order in July 1913. He did missionary work around Lake Winnipeg, mainly at Berens River, Bloodvein, and Little Grand Rapids. In recognition of his service as a teacher and Justice of the Peace, he was inducted into the Order of Canada (1976) and he received a Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1977). He died at Winnipeg on 12 July 1982 and was buried in the St. Boniface Cemetery. A collection of his photographs is held at the Archives of Manitoba.
