Memorable Manitobans: Crispin Oddy (1881-1972)

Municipal official.

Born at Rochdale, England on 6 July 1881, he emigrated to Canada in 1910. During the First World War, he served with Canadian miliary forces under the name Crispin Beaumont. A long-time member of the CCF, forerunner of the NDP, he served as a municipal councillor for Brooklands and was Mayor from 1944 to 1950. In later years, he ran again for the office but was unsuccessful. He died at Winnipeg on 20 April 1972 and was buried in Brookside Cemetery.
