Biographical history

Custodial history

The creation of this honour roll began July 15, 1946, when the Committee on Legislation and Reception made a formal recommendation in Council that such an honour roll be made. The recommendation was forwarded to Mayor Coulter and John D. Duthie was commissioned to create the honour roll, which he completed in 1947. It was hung in City Hall until being transferred to the Archives for safekeeping.

Scope and content

View Transcription. This roll of honour consists of 537 hand painted names of City of Winnipeg employees who served in the Second World War. The names are organized by the department they worked in, and stars are placed next to the names of those who died during the war. The title at the top consists of elaborate calligraphy, as well as a Union Jack flag rising out of the letters. The centre of the print showcases an image of a knight's helmet and an elaborately sheathed sword above an image of the City of Winnipeg seal. The bottom features a quote from the ancient Greek leader Pericles, which Duthie chose himself.
