About Colin Inkster

the Hon. Colin Inkster, served as High Sheriff of Manitoba for fifty-two years, and was acknowledged to be “a walking encyclopedia of Red River history,” in an article published in the Winnipeg Free Press in about 1953.[9] Its author, W.E. Ingersoll, a self-professed local history enthusiast who wrote a regular column on the subject, averred that “Whenever Librarian Healy wanted to check Red River history, he went, not to a book but over to the office of Sheriff Inkster, and the sheriff business stopped dead til W.J. and the Sheriff had duly checked their historical reference.” Further, Ingersoll stated that Healy was “One of the Sheriff’s closest friends,” all of which suggests that Sheriff Colin Inkster was among those consulted regarding the veracity of information published in Women of Red River.[10]
