Memorable Manitobans: Annie Milne (1876-1942)


Born in Ontario in 1876, she taught at Woodstock until moving to Manitoba where she taught at several rural schools. In 1895, she joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Board and taught at Somerset School and Dufferin School (1898-1902). She served as the Principal of Carlton School from 1911 to 1929, just before it closed, when she retired. She died, unmarried, in March 1942.
