Dictionary of Canadian Biography
The Dictionary of Canadian Biography includes biographical sketches of prominent persons who lived in what is now Canada from 1000-1930. Coverage from 1931-2000 is partial, with more biographies added regularly. The database can be searched by personal name, by geographic region, and by occupation.
This listing is a compilation of a number of biographical sources including the Dictionary of Manitoba Biography by Dr. J. Bumsted.
