Memorable Manitobans: Charles Russell Scribner (1911-1991)


Born at Winnipeg on 21 March 1911, son of Charles E. and Daisy M. Scribner, and brother of F. E. Scribner, he received his early education at Filmore, Saskatchewan. He attended the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Manitoba, graduating with a medical degree from the latter, in 1938. He began a medical practice at Abby, Saskatchewan and subsequently worked at Oak Lake, Manitoba; Antler, Saskatchewan; Teulon, Manitoba, and Gimli, Manitoba. He also served as a medical examiner for the Province of Manitoba, and first Chairman of the Medical License Review Board of Manitoba. He was a member of the Teulon Town Council, Chairman of the Gimli School Board, and Treasurer of the Gimli Lutheran Church. In 1970, he was awarded a Manitoba Centennial Medal from the Manitoba Historical Society. He died at Winnipeg on 17 August 1991.
