Memorable Manitobans: Murray Forrester Smith (1946-1998)


Born at Brandon on 16 August 1946, second son of Glen and Jean Smith, he attended Park School, Brandon Collegiate, and Brandon University (BSc). In 1968, he began a teaching career at Flin Flon and, a year later, he moved to Glenboro School then to Baldur School where he was appointed Principal in 1983. Poor health forced him to retire from full-time teaching but he continued part-time at the Windy Bay Colony School until his death. He died at Brandon, unmarried, on 6 November 1998 and was buried in the Baldur Cemetery.
