Biography of Isabel Auld

Isabel Auld, the University of Manitoba’s, and first woman, Chancellor, took office in 1977, the University’s centennial year. Born inWinnipeg, the child of Scottish parents, C.G. and Mrs. Hutcheson, she attended school in Regina, Saskatchewan. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology and a Masters of Science (1940) in genetics from the University of Saskatchewan. A gifted student, she won a National Research Council studentship for post-graduate research in cyto-genitics at McGill University before accepting a post at the Rust Research Laboratory of the Federal Department of Agriculture. She resigned this post upon marriage to W.M. Auld in 1942. Whilst raising three children, she began a lifelong career of volunteer work dedicated to the welfare of others, serving numerous organizations involved in education, health, consumer and social services. Member of the Board of Governors and Senate for fourteen years and Chancellor for nine, she became the “ambassador-at-large” for the University of Manitoba, gaining the respect of academics, administrators and students alike. Her many honours include the Centennial Medal (1967), honorary Doctorates from the Universities of Saskatchewan (1979) and Manitoba (1986), Member of the Order of Canada (1989) and inclusion in Winnipeg’s Citizens’ hall of Fame (1993).
