Memorable Manitobans: George Egerton Snider (1874-1935)

Educator.

Born at Aurora, Ontario on 11 November 1874, he received high school education and normal school training at Toronto. In 1902, he moved to Manitoba where, on 20 December 1911, he married Polena Allison Mary “Robina” Rutherford in the RM of Albert. He taught at schools around the province and was Principal of Selkirk South Ward School (1929-1935). Following a long period of illness, he died at his Selkirk home on 10 November 1935 and was buried in the Old Kildonan Cemetery.
