Memorable Manitobans: Malcolm Alexander MacQueen (1884-1960)

Lawyer, genealogist.

Born at Orwell, Prince Edward Island in 1884, he graduated from Queen’s University in 1903 and came to Winnipeg the next year. He apprenticed in the law office of Munroe and West then, after graduation, became a partner in the firm. He was later associated with MacKenzie, Campbell, and Driscoll. On 20 November 1912, he married Harriet Murgatroyd “Maud” Riley (?-?), daughter of R. T. Riley, and they lived at 66 West Gate. They had no children. He retired from law practice in 1918 to devote his time to studying the history of Prince Edward Island and its prominent families. He published articles and several books on these subjects. He died at Winnipeg on 20 April 1960.
