Memorable Manitobans: Howard Reginald Standing (1899-1994)

Educator.

Born in the Rural Municipality of Argyle on 9 November 1899, son of John Hamilton Standing (1855-1902) and Isabella Graham (1863-?), he married Anne Austin (?-?) at the Winnipeg residence of George H. Stewart, 966 Dorchester Avenue, on 12 November 1923. He taught at Woodrow School (1924-1925) and was the Principal of Sanford School (1931-1934) and Elgin School (1934-1937). He then joined the teaching staff of the Winnipeg School Division and taught at Hugh John Macdonald School (1939-1941) before enlisting for military duties during the Second World War. After his military discharge, he appears to have resettled in Vancouver, British Columbia. Later whereabouts are unknown with his death reportedly occurring in 1994.
