Memorable Manitobans: Charles Ernest Stockdill (1881-1960)

Business executive.

Born at London, Ontario on 25 October 1881, he first joined the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1896, working as a telegraph messenger boy at London. He rose through the company ranks, coming to Winnipeg in 1915 as General Manager of Western Lines. While living in Winnipeg, he served as Chairman of the Sanatorium Board of Manitoba (1942-1943), President of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce (1936-1938), and President of the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce (1941-1943). In 1943, he moved to Montreal to become Assistant to the Vice-President. Three years later, he retired and moved to Victoria, British Columbia, where he died on 13 June 1960.
