Biographical Sketch: Lewis St. George Stubbs was born
on June 14, 1878 in the Turks & Caicos Islands, British
West Indies. He left Cambridge University, where he was
studying to become a medical missionary, to fight in the
Boer War 1900-1901. He immigrated to Winnipeg in 1902
and was called to the Manitoba Bar Association in 1906.
In 1904 he married Mary Wilcock. In 1908 they moved to
Birtle, Manitoba where he practiced law for fourteen years.
In 1921 he ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party against
T.A. Crerar the leader of the Progressive Party in the
federal riding of Marquette. In April 1922 he became the
first judicial appointment of the newly appointed Mackenzie
King and moved back to Winnipeg. Stubbs was removed
from the bench by order-in-council June 1, 1933 following
an inquiry into his judicial conduct. A month later he won
the nomination to become the C.C.F. party’s first
candidate in a bye-election in the riding of Mackenzie
in Saskatchewan. He lost the election and returned to the
practice of law in Winnipeg. In 1936 Stubbs ran as an
independent candidate in the provincial election and swept
the polls with the greatest electoral majority ever
recorded in the Manitoba Legislature. He won re-election
in 1941 & 1945. Stubbs was active in many left
leaning/united front political organizations.
He died in May 1958.
