Memorable Manitobans: John Frederick Archibald “Jack” Partridge (1912-1966)

Educator, municipal official.

Born at Winnipeg in 1912, son of Edmund Partridge and Edith Helen Kitts, he attended St. Paul’s College and obtained a Bachelor of Education from the University of Manitoba. He taught at several schools including Earl Grey School, Aberdeen School, and West Kildonan Collegiate. He was Principal of Victory School from 1961 to 1964 and, in January 1965, was promoted to Principal of Edmund Partridge Junior High School, named in honour of his father.

During the Second World War, he served with the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps before resuming his career in education. Partridge was elected to the West Kildonan municipal council in 1949 and served as Reeve in 1952 and 1953.

He died on 20 July 1966 and was interred at the Glen Eden Memorial Garden.
