Memorable Manitobans: The Story of Manitoba

by F. H. Schofield
The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, 1913.

This collection of biographies of Manitobans was compiled by the S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, and published at Winnipeg in 1913. Most of those featured in the book were living at that time, so no information on death dates was provided. Where possible, these have been added to this online version.

Online version 2008, Manitoba Historical Society.
