Memorable Manitobans: Mary Agnes Medd (1880-1972)

Historian.

Born at Winnipeg on 4 October 1880, daughter of Peter McArthur and Pauline Albertine Bratnober, she moved to Winnipegosis in 1900. She married physician Alfred E. Medd in 1914 and they had five children: Howard Wilber Medd (b 1915), Eva Louise Medd (Mrs. M. S. Olson), Edna A. Medd, Dallas Medd, and Peter C. Medd (b 1925). In 1970, her contributions to preserving the history of Manitoba were recognized by a Manitoba Centennial Medal from the Manitoba Historical Society. She died at Winnipeg on 17 June 1972 and was buried in the Winnipegosis Cemetery.
