Memorable Manitobans: Walter Nowosad (1932-2015)


Born at Wainitz, Znaim, Czechoslovakia on 7 March 1932, his family moved to Reichenbuch, Germany after the Second World War. There he worked as a cabinet-maker before emigrating to Canada in 1954. Coming to Winnipeg, he worked as a cabinet-maker by day and studied for a degree in architecture by night. After his 1958 marriage, he worked at a private architectural firm for 15 years then worked as an architect for 21 years with the federal government. His work included the Deer Lodge Hospital, several schools, and the Morden Research Station. On retirement in 1996, he received a commemorative medal from the Governor General of Canada. He died at Winnipeg on 3 February 2015.
