E. B. Gibson: Winnipeg's First Lady of Real Estate

My column in Sunday's Free Press is about Evelyn Bertie Gibson. Raised at St. Ouens, near Beausejour, she came to Winnipeg at around age 19 to continue her education.

She found the coursework tedious, but had a head for business, so she left school and set up an office to became Winnipeg's, likely the West's, first full-time female real estate agent.
