Creator / Provenance
Biography / Administrative history
Colonel H.J. Woodside, was born in 1858 in Arkwright, Ontario, and was educated at Owen Sound and Prince Arthur's Landing. He married Josephine V. Huestis of Halifax, N.S., in 1902. In 1878 he joined the C.P.R. and worked on telegraph and railway construction. From 1880 to 1898, Woodside managed a series of enterprises at Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, including a jewellery business, the newspaper, Manitoba Liberal, and a general insurance agency. He journeyed to the Yukon in 1898 and the following year became managing editor of the Yukon Sun. Upon his resignation from the newspaper in 1901, he was appointed Census Commissioner for the Yukon Territory.
Woodside left the Yukon in 1904 and after periods of residence at Winnipeg and Guelph, he settled in Ottawa in 1906 as city manager of the Imperial Guarantee and Accident Company.
Woodside served in the Northwest Rebellion and remained active in the Canadian militia for the rest of his life. He saw service in the South African War with the 2nd C.M.R. in 1902 and was wounded in France in May 1916 while serving with the 5th C.M.R. In 1918, he toured the southern United States to promote the Liberty Loan Drive.
