Biographical history

Margaret Arnett MacLeod was born in 1877 in London, Ontario, and later moved to Manitoba with her family. Her father, Lewis Arnett, came to the Red River region with the Ontario volunteers in the Wolseley Expedition of 1870. She was educated in Brandon and Winnipeg and taught in Stonewall, Manitoba, before marrying Dr. A.N. MacLeod. In 1935, she wrote The Frozen Priest of Pembina and, in 1937, wrote Bells of Red River. In 1947, she compiled her most famous work, The Letters of Letitia Hargrave. She also wrote Red River Festive Season (1962) and Grantown, the story of Cuthbert Grant, which she compiled in collaboration with Dr. W.L. Morton in 1963.
