Herbert George McIntosh (1909-1993) was a farmer and volunteer in the Carberry, Manitoba area. He was born in the Petrel, Manitoba district and died in Carberry. His parents were Bessie and James McIntosh, and he had siblings Ethel, Anna, and Alex. McIntosh married Mary Emma Graham (1906-1990) of the Wellwood district in 1929 and they had children Ian, Yvonne, Gwen, Linda, Don. Before marriage, he worked at various jobs in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. McIntosh had been educated at both Petrel and Carberry schools. He was road master for the rural Municipality of North Cypress during the 1930's. After that he was Secretary Treasurer of the Petrel school district, and held other volunteer positions in various organisations. McIntosh ran twice as a political candidate, and he was a Manitoba Farmer's Union director as well as a Co-op insurance salesman for many years. He was one of the founders of the Carberry Plains Museum. After his term as Centennial Committee Chairman (1980-1983), McIntosh was presented with the local Man of the Year Award. In 1983 he and Mary were presented with the Farm Conservation Award.
