Memorable Manitobans: Milton John Tinline (1880-1968)


Born in York County, Ontario, he came with his parents to the Elkhorn district of Manitoba and helped clear the family homestead. He was the first student to register at the Manitoba Agricultural College, graduating in 1911, when he was made Assistant Superintendent at the Brandon Experimental Farm. After some years there and in Saskatchewan, he became Superintendent of the Brandon Experimental facility in 1924, serving until his retirement in 1946. He then became superintendent at the International Peace Gardens, directing the landscaping work there for many years. He was given a Manitoba Golden Boy Award in 1962 and was inducted posthumously into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame.
