Stories of Selkirk’s Pioneers and Their Heritage

by Kenneth G. Howard

January 2011

ISBN 978-0-986770-60-9 (hardcover)


Historian Ken Howard wrote this book in response to a question from a grandson who, in 2002, asked him “Grandpa, what was your father like?” In researching the life of his father, Louis George Howard (1885-1968), Ken exchanged information and memories with family members, visited and corresponded with relatives in England, searched through Manitoba Legislative Library microfiches to examine copies of the City of Selkirk’s early weekly newspapers, and accessed information from diverse government sources. These explorations stirred memories not only of his father but also of many friends, neighbors, and acquaintances of all ages, from the 1920s onwards. Ken interviewed members of Selkirk’s pioneer families and documented their life stories. Eight years later, this 500-page book is the product of that work.
