Biography

Are there any changes we should make?

Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!

Ulysses Stanley Wagner

Ulysses Stanley Wagner was born in Pueblo, Colorado in 1908. He moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba at an early age, and graduated from Kelvin High School in 1925. In 1927, he took flying lessons, and in 1931, he formed Northern Air Transport, which took supplies and passengers to mines and communities elsewhere in Manitoba. He was a member of a hockey team called “The Winnipegs”. This team won the Allen Cup, and later won a gold medal at the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York. He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1987 for this achievement, along with his teammates. Between 1934 and 1948, he worked for various aviation companies, including Sioux Lookout, Canadian Pacific Airlines, and TransAir Limited. He eventually became the General Manager and Vice President of Operations of TransAir Limited. He was a life member of the Western Canada Aviation Museum, and helped create the Winnipeg Flying Club. Wagner Lake, a lake in Manitoba that is south of Lynn Lake, is named after him. He died in Winnipeg on October 11, 2002.
