Biographical history

Alexander (Alec) Ewanchuk was born on June 23, 1915 in Gimli, Manitoba. His parents Wasyl and Paraska Ewanchuk, Ukrainian pioneers, came to Manitoba in 1902. They had five children: Nettie, John, Michael, Peter and Alexander. Alexander attended the Dnister School in Gimli. After completing Grade XII in Teulon, he began to teach. His first school was Sky Lake School in Gimli. He took two extra courses in physical education and shops and in 1945 became a physical education teacher at West Kildonan Collegiate. There he coached a champion junior hockey team with Frank Bathgate as a player. Alexander was a very good baseball player and enjoyed Ukrainian dancing. During the Second World War, he received an Air Cadet Pilot Officer certificate from the Royal Canadian Air Force. After the war he completed a B.A.(1953) and B.Ed.(1956) at the University of Manitoba. In 1957 he moved to Toronto and taught at the Forest Hill Collegiate. He was an educator and Ukrainian pioneer who contributed substantially to the Ukrainian community in Canada. He contracted pneumonia and died in 1958.
