Biographical history

Born and educated in Winnipeg, D. Harold Turner taught speech, drama and children's literature in the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba. He was active in the Manitoba Festival of Arts as a committee chairman and adjudicator and in the Manitoba Historical Society and Drama League. For his contribution to drama in the Manitoba community he received the Centennial Medal, but it was for his contribution to children's literature that D. Harold Turner will be remembered.
