Memorable Manitobans: John Lawrence Veale (1868-1903)

Educator.

Born in Ontario on 27 March 1868, son of John Bailey Veale (1836-1929) and Emma Grace Mason (1839-1910), he took teacher training and moved to Manitoba in the early 1890s. By 1895, he was Principal of Oakwood School (1895), during which year he was hospitalized with typhoid fever at the Brandon General Hospital from late August through late September. While at Oak Lake, he was elected an officer of the local Glee Club (1896). By 1898, he was enrolled at Wesley College, at which he was a member of the chess club, wrote for Vox Wesleyana, and graduated with a BA degree (1901). He was Principal of Maple Leaf School (1900-1901) and attained his First Class Teaching Certification (1901) from the Central Normal School before moving to Bates where he taught at Garnett School (1901-1902) and served as Board Secretary of the Eastland Methodist Church. On 9 January 1913, he suddenly contracted pneumonia, and within mere days, died at Bates on 13 January. His body was returned to Durham County, Ontario for interment in the Nestleton United Church Cemetery.
