Memorable Manitobans: William Murdoch Taylor (1858-?)

Farmer, municipal official.

Born in Scotland on 15 January 1858, son of Isabella Taylor (1823-?), he came to Canada in 1880 and farmed in the vicinity of Beulah. For the Rural Municipality of Miniota, he was a councillor (1895-1899) and Reeve (1900-1906). In this capacity, he attended the 1905 founding meeting in Brandon of the Union of Manitoba Municipalities. He was a Conservative candidate for the Birtle constituency in the 1914 provincial general election but was defeated by George Malcolm.
