With more than 1,600 biographical sketches, the Dictionary covers over 300 years of Manitobans and Manitoba history. Starting with the early explorers in the seventeenth century, it includes many contemporary Manitobans from the fields of politics, the arts, sports, commerce, agriculture and social life. As well, special emphasis is placed on reflecting Manitoba's ethnic and social diversity, and on including important men and women whose contributions are now overlooked.
