Memorable Manitobans: Howard Newton Richardson (1879-1949)
Born at Sunderland, Ontario on 5 May 1879, son of John C. Richardson and Abigal M. Andrews, he came to Manitoba in his youth and farmed in the Swan River valley for some time. In 1904, he moved to Winnipeg and opened an art dealership and framing store with his brother, Arthur John Richardson, on Portage Avenue. The Richardson Brothers Art Gallery was in operation for 40 years. He and wife Alice Maude Dell (1887-1976) had two children, Kathleen Edna Richardson (1915-?, wife of George Elliot Bolton) and Russell William Richardson (1918-1983). He was a member of the Masons (St. John's Lodge) and Loyal Orange Lodge (Assiniboine Lodge). He died suddenly, while on holiday at Los Angeles, California, on 4 March 1949 and was buried in the St. Vital Cemetery.
