Memorable Manitobans: Frederick Edgar Warriner (1884-1966)

Dentist, Mayor of Winnipeg (1937).

Born at Stoufville, Ontario on 3 April 1884, son of S. M. Warriner and Mary Emily Manning, he received his dental degree from the University of Toronto in 1907 and came to Winnipeg in 1917. He was elected to the Winnipeg School Board in 1928 and served on it until his election as Mayor, replacing John Queen. He served for a single year, in 1937, and Queen resumed as Mayor. Warriner also served as Mayor of Winnipeg Beach from 1932 to 1936. He was a Conservative candidate for the Winnipeg constituency in the 1941 provincial general election. He was a member of the Manitoba Dental Society, Winnipeg Kiwanis Club (President), Khartum Shriners, YMCA, and Order of Elks. He died at Winnipeg on 26 December 1966.
