Notice biographique

The Manitoba Pitblado family formed one branch of an extensive North American family of Scottish origin. The immediate forebears came from Fife and settled in Nova Scotia. One of these, Charles Bruce Pitblado (1836-1913), became a Presbyterian minister and, following a tour of the Canadian West, accepted a call in 1881 to the newly-organized St. Andrew's Church in Winnipeg. In 1885, he served as a chaplain with the Canadian forces fighting against Louis Riel. Pitblado accompanied the captured Riel to Regina. In 1893, he became the first pastor of Westminster Church.

Isaac Pitblado (1867-1964), the son of Charles Bruce Pitblado, had a long and distinguished legal career. An early graduate of the University of Manitoba, he served as Chairman of the Board of Governors from 1917 to 1924 and, in 1935, served as President of the Canadian Bar Association. He enjoyed lacrosse, curling, and duck-hunting.

Edward Bruce Pitblado (1896-1977), Isaac's only son, followed his father as a lawyer and sportsman. He served in both World Wars, was a Rhodes Scholar, played for the 1924 British Olympic hockey team, and served as Secretary of Ducks Unlimited from 1938 to 1974.

Historique de la conservation

The Pitblado Papers were donated to the University of Manitoba in three lots in 1982-1983 by Esther (Jonsson) Pitblado, widow of Edward Bruce Pitblado.

Portée et contenu

The collection includes personal papers from the three generations of Manitoba Pitblados: documents, correspondence, writings, scrapbooks. The most voluminous batch of correspondence consists of Edward's letters home from Europe during World War I and while holding his Rhodes Scholarship. There are letters from other family members, especially as arising from Isaac and Edward's interest in reconstructing the Pitblado genealogy. Materials of particular interest in the Charles Bruce segment relate to the Canadian Northwest in the 1880's, including the 1885 Riel Rebellion, and to the Presbyterian Church (notably St. Andrew's and Westminster, Winnipeg). The Isaac segment contains a number of drafts or notes for addresses, many to legal audiences. Both the Isaac and the Edward segments preserve source material for the history of Canadian sports.
