Notice biographique

Les J. Millington was born in Derby, England in 1911. In 1925, he immigrated to Canada and initially settled in Carstairs, Alberta, where he worked as a cowhand on the Hays and Co. dairy farm. Millington worked in Carstairs for a number of years, spent a short period of time in British Columbia, and then moved to Manitoba in 1936. Also in 1936, and shortly before moving to Manitoba, Millington married Luvena Callico and the newlywed couple set up their own cattle farm in Rosser, Manitoba. The Millingtons soon moved to St. Norbert and expanded their operations. In 1956, Millington moved his operations to Georgetown, Ontario and founded his cattle export company, Rockford International. Rockford International continued to grow and Millington made a sizable contribution to the export of Canadian cattle overseas. Millington traveled and exported cattle to many countries in the 1960s, including Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Peru, and Italy. In 1969, Millington moved Rockford International back to Manitoba and set up shop in St. Norbert. In 1978, Millington sold off his assets and retired.

Portée et contenu

The fonds consists of a published monograph, As Life Unfolds: Memoirs of Les J. Millington. Topics in the autobiography include Millington's early life in England, his immigration to Canada, the creation of his company, Rockford International, his travels to numerous countries in order to export Canadian cattle, and his retirement to Florida and Falcon Lake, Manitoba. The monograph includes several copies of photographs and excerpts from media articles about Les Millington. In the preface, Millington mentions that the autobiography was dictated to his wife, Luvena Millington, and transcribed by Opal Langrell, the author of Yesteryears: Woodlands Municipal Memoirs.
