Memorable Manitobans: Dugald McLeod (1840-1918)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born in Scotland on 4 January 1840, he immigrated to Canada in 1863. In 1870, he came to Manitoba as a member of the Wolseley Expedition. Following his discharge, he chose to stay in Manitoba, taking up a homestead at SW12-14-1W in 1879 as one of the first settlers of the Argyle district, which he named after his home region of Argyll, Scotland. He served as a municipal councillor in the RM of Woodlands and was commemorated by the McLeod School District. In 1905, in poor health, he rented out his farm and travelled to Ontario then to New Zealand. He returned to Argyle in June 1907. He died at the Winnipeg General Hospital, unmarried, on 18 June 1918.
