Memorable Manitobans: George Morrison (1861-1945)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born at Tarves, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, he emigrated to Canada immediately after his wedding, on 29 July 1884, to Mary Argo Duthie (?-1945). They lived at Guelph, Ontario for a year before moving on to Hartney, Manitoba where they farmed. He served as Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Cameron from 1918 to 1943, during which time he attended every annual convention of the Union of Manitoba Municipalities. He died on 29 November 1945 and was buried in Riverside Cemetery.
