Memorable Manitobans: Lilian Edille Talbot (1880-?)


Born at Winnipeg on 11 December 1880, daughter of Charles Talbot (c1842-?) and Phoebe Anna “Annie” Smith (c1846-?), she became a teacher for the Winnipeg School Board. She worked at the South Central School (1895-1896) before going to Gladstone School as teacher (1897-1900) and Principal (1900-1901). She resigned around August 1901 to pursue other ventures. Her whereabouts after this time are unknown.
