Memorable Manitobans: Campbell Huntly Malcolm (1898-1996)

Grain buyer.

Born on a farm near Birtle on 14 January 1898, son of George John Huntly Malcolm and Janet Inglis Winter (1866-1902), he left home to work as a grain buyer for Paterson Grain at Chillon siding (1924-1928). He was subsequently transferred to sites in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, eventually becoming Manager for the Seed Division of Federal Grain at Winnipeg. In 1955, he was appointed to the National Harbours Board at Ottawa where he served for ten years, being responsible for the operation of its terminal elevators. On 18 December 1926, he married Iola Martha Taylor (1907-1995) at Foxwarren and they had three children: Neil Taylor Malcolm (1928-?), Shirley Mable Malcolm, and Lilian Marie Malcolm. He was an active member of Sparling United Church and Chalmers United Church, and served on the Winnipeg School Board. In 1967, he retired to Winnipeg for a short time then moved to Victoria, British Columbia before returning to Ottawa in 1984 where he died on 31 October 1996.
