Memorable Manitobans: Lachlan Currie MacIntyre (1850-1917)


Born at Victoria County, Ontario on 5 October 1850, son of Duncan MacIntyre and Mary Currie, he came to Winnipeg in 1882 and, for the next nine years, was a travelling salesman for the wholesale grocery firm of Turner, Mackeand & Company. He then accepted the position as manager of the biscuit and confectionary manufacturing firm of Paulin Chambers Company. When the company was incorporated in 1899, he continued as its General Manager and Secretary-Treasurer. In 1876, he married Eurith Copeland (?-?) of Lucknow, Ontario and they had a daughter, Eurith Edna MacIntyre (?-?, wife of Charles W. Baker). He was a member of the IOOF and treasurer of the North West Commercial Travelers Association. He died at the Winnipeg General Hospital on 12 September 1917 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
