Memorable Manitobans: Herbert H. “Harry” McIntosh (1880-?)


Born at Ridgeway, Ontario on 23 January 1880, son of Robert A. McIntosh and Euretta S. Hardison, he came to Manitoba at the age of 10, graduating from the intermediate school in 1897 and the Winnipeg Collegiate Institute in 1900. He had begun teaching two years earlier to raise money for his education, including a Principalship at Cartwright School (1901-1902) and, in 1903, he entered Wesley College to take science courses. Four years later, he graduated and was appointed Principal of the Minnedosa Collegiate Institute (1907-c1910). He later served as Principal of Principal Sparling School (1913-1914), Somerset School (1914-1918), Pinkham School (1919-1926), and Alexandra School (1926-1929).

On 23 December 1909, he married Margaret Taylor (?-?), daughter of T. D. Taylor, former Mayor of Minnedosa. They had three children: Russell Taylor McIntosh (1912-?), Eva U. McIntosh (1915-?), and Margaret E. McIntosh (1916-?). He was a member of the IOOF and the Methodist Church.
