Memorable Manitobans: Edward Adam Lynch (1883-1955)

Educator.

Born in Nova Scotia on 11 June 1883, the son of Edward Lynch and Martha Crowe Dickie, he came to Manitoba and earned a second-class teacher’s certificate in December 1907. In Brandon, he was Principal of Alexandra School (1909-1912) before taking up residence in Edmonton, Alberta by 1915. He returned to Manitoba to marry Katherine Frances MacKinnon (daughter of John R. MacKinnon) at Winnipeg on 29 December 1915. The couple had at least one child, Lieutenant J. M. Lynch. He continued his career in education, eventually moving to British Columbia around 1928, living at Victoria (c1940) and Penticton (c1944), later retiring from teaching high school in 1948. He died at Victoria on 22 October 1955 and was buried in Royal Oak Burial Park.
