Organizations: Municipality councillor, 1946 To 1957, , Cameron, Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. 752 (Part of a dissertation on Public Servants 19181957)

Mr. George Morrison was reeve of Cameron Municipality from 1918 until 1944. Council changes were not so frequent in the municipality as in the town. John M. More, O. T. Bugg, Claude Rey, W. H. Galbraith, J. A. Agnew, J. A. McRorie, Marcel Frankard, T. E. Gibson, Gesner Bent, H. Martin and R. H. Gibson were the councilors during Mr. Morrison's reeveship. John Agnew served one year as reeve when Mr. Morrison retired. He was followed by Arthur Galbraith in 1946 and Mr. Galbraith still holds the office in 1957. Serving as councilors from 1946 until 1957 have been H. Martin, R. H. Gibson, John More, W. C. Keeler, J. G. McBurney, Jos. Agnew and John Bodin who completed the term of H. Martin who died in office after serving as councilor from 1924 to 1955, the longest term of continuous service of any councilor in Cameron municipality.

Fact 1, 1952, Hartney, Cameron, Manitoba, Canada. 753 (Part of a dissertation on Veterinarians in Hartney)

In a farming district a veterinary doctor was a valuable member of the community. Hartney's first veterinary doctor was Dr. A. G. Hopkins, an Englishman who remained in the town for two years. He was followed by Dr. D. D. Reid whose office was above that of the McDonald livery barn. Dr. Reid left Hartney in 1904 and his place was taken by Dr. Hackett who cared for the farm animals until 1915. He was followed by Dr. E. L. Houck a native of Boissevain district who practiced at Napinka for two years before coming to Hartney. Dr. Houck served the farmers of Cameron Municipality and worked enthusiastically with the Agricultural Society for the twenty four years that he resided in the town. In 1939 he became Provincial Veterinarian of the Livestock Branch of the Department of Agriculture for the Manitoba government and with his wife and daughter, Lorraine, moved to Winnipeg to live. There Mrs. Houck died in 1953 and Dr. Houck in 1957. There has been no qualified veterinarian in Cameron Municipality since Dr. Houck's departure and since that time Arthur Galbraith, now the reeve of the municipality, has filled the need and been ready to act as a practical veterinarian whenever his services were required. So faithfully has he cared for the farm animals that in 1952 at a gathering of almost 500 grateful citizens in the town hall, a 1952 half-ton truck, paid for by the willing contributions of those who appreciated his services, was presented to Reeve Galbraith by R. A. Gibson on behalf of the community. A notable contribution was that of Councilor J. G. McBurney who donated a well-fed hog to be raffled to add to the truck purchasing fund.
