Memorable Manitobans: Marshall Cameron “Marsh” Pfimister (1914-1971)

Entertainer, producer.

Born and educated in Winnipeg, he became a producer while performing at the Cave, a popular Winnipeg supper club. He subsequently ran Jack’s Place, a nightclub on Pembina Highway, and was the original host of the Hollow Mug. He made many appearances on radio and television, and played on Rainbow Stage. At the time of his death -- in an automobile accident in Selkirk involving a collision with a moving house -- he was a public relations officer.
