Memorable Manitobans: Logan Murray Moore (1848-1927)


Born in Nottawasage, Ontario on 19 March 1848, son of John Moore and Mary Murray, he was educated at Duntroon before teaching school. He then entered Victoria College, Toronto, and completed his medical training at Trinity College in 1872, receiving that institution’s first gold medal. He practised at Thornhill, Ontario before coming to Brandon in 1882, where he accumulated substantial quantities of land inside and outside the city. On 3 April 1879, he was married to Rachel Ellison (?-?) at Thornbury, Ontario. They had eight children, four of whom died in early childhood, surviving ones being Pearl Palmer Moore, Effie Georgina Moore, Clarence M. Moore, and Aubrey V. Moore. He was a member of the Masons and IOOF. He moved to Victoria, British Columbia in 1916 and died there on 2 January 1927.
