Memorable Manitobans: Frank A. Wiens (1927-2010)

Educator.

Born near Warren on 24 January 1927, one of eight children of Abraham and Katherina Wiens, he grew up on a farm near Poplar Point. He attended St. John’s College and received BA and BEd degrees. He then taught at Sargent Park School (1953-1957) before joining Ted Byfield in co-founding the St. John’s Cathedral Boys’ School. The facility operated on a full-time basis as of 1962 and he was its Headmaster until it closed in 1990. In recognition of his service to the Anglican community, in 1978 he received an honorary fellowship from St. John’s College. He died at Selkirk on 12 May 2010.
