The Portage la Prairie Historical Committee wish to thank the many people in Portage la Prairie and surrounding districts who submitted, either in writing or by telephone, material which assisted in the prepara tion of this book.

Special thanks are extended to Mrs. E. F. Radclyffe, St. James, Man., who speeded up production by freeing the writer from long days of research in the Manitoba Archives; thereby showing her sincere interest in the history of our area. Assistance given by the Provincial Archivist and associates is very much appreciated too.

We are also greatly indebted to various writers and publishers for some of the historical information contained in this book.
