Frederick Taylor, manager of the Royal Bank of Prince Albert, was born in Yorkshire, England, on the 17th of March, 1879, a son of George and Catherine (Witpen) Taylor, the former a native of Gawber and the latter of Kent, England. Both father and grandfather engaged in the manufacture of linen and were prominent and highly esteemed citizens of their respective communities. The father died in 1891, and he is survived by his widow, who is still making her home in England. In the pursuit of his education Frederick Taylor attended the public schools of Barnsley and Sheffield, also of York, England, and subsequently entered the business world in the office of Rowntries in York. He re- mained in that office until 1903, when he came to Canada and located at Mather, Manitoba. Mr. Taylor came to this country with the intention of becoming a farmer but he went into the Molsons Bank at Winnipeg as junior clerk and three years later went with the Traders Bank, where he remained until its amalgamation with the Royal Bank, when he was trans- ferred as manager to Lipton, Saskatchewan, in 1912, remaining there six years. In 1918 he was transferred to Prince Albert and has since been manager of the Royal Bank. He is a man of keen insight, energy and magnetic personality. Having worked his way up in the banking business there is no phase of it with which he is not familiar and he enjoys the confidence and esteem of all who know him. On the 5th of July, 1909, Mr. Taylor was married to Miss Bernice Ethel Younghusband, and they have become the parents of three children: John F. G., twelve years of age; Everard S. W., eight years of age; and Barbara Bernice, three years of age. Mr. Taylor is public-spirited in every sense of the word. He has served as president of the Keewatin Club, holding that office in 1922; and for one year was on the executive commit- tee of the Anglican diocese, and is at present a member of the investment committee of the diocese. He is a member of the Prince Albert Golf Club and has served as secretary and treasurer of the Prince Albert Tennis Club for the past four years. He is likewise connected with the Prince Albert Skating Club and the local Curling Club and while a resi- dent of Winnipeg he was signal officer for the Winnipeg Grenadiers, holding that office eighteen months. He is an active member of the local Board of Trade. Bibliography follows:
