Memorable Manitobans: Frank Wright Newman (1900-1977)

Lawyer, judge.

Born at Portage la Prairie on 26 August 1900, son of T. A. Newman and Christina Cleaver, he attended Portage schools and received an Arts degree from the University of Manitoba in 1921. He received a law degree from the Manitoba Law School in 1924, was called to the Manitoba Bar the next year, and articled with the firms of Macdonald, Craig, and Tarr in Winnipeg, and with J. O. McLenaghen at Selkirk. He then practiced with McLenaghen. He was made a King’s Counsel in 1949. Appointed a County Court judge in 1962, he served until his death, which occurred at Winnipeg on 28 June 1977.
