“David H. Harrison – operated a private bank in Neepawa – later it became the Merchant’s Bank; Dr. Harrison was elected premier of Manitoba in 1887 and served the shortest term recorded, no other doctor has served in the capacity.”

Page 73: “1983 marks the 85th Anniversary of the establishment of the local branch of the Bank of Montreal. The original office was opened in this community on February 1, 1898. The first office, that of the Merchants Bank of Canada was located at the corner of First Avenue and Hamilton Street in the building once occupied by the late H.S. Stead, later purchased by Frank Reid, since purchased, demolished, rebuilt and occupied by Beautiful Plains Credit Union. Prior to the coming of the bank, this location served a somewhat similar purpose for the late Dr. David Howard Harrison, who occupied the building before 1898. He conducted a small private banking business.” “Managers since Neepawa’s 1st Banking Services were as follows: Prior to 1898 – Dr. David Howard Harrison.”

“Death of Dr. Harrison; News of Demise of Prominent Citizen of Vancouver and Former – Premier of Manitoba Received at Moment of Going to Press – The Deceased’s Political Record,” Vancouver Daily News-Advertiser, September 8, 1905, page 1:

“General regret will be experienced at the new of the death of Dr. D.H. Harrison, for some years a resident of Vancouver, and in earlier life a prominent figure in the politics of Manitoba. The deceased, who was in his 63rd year, had long suffered from a lingering illness, and the end, which came at about 1 o’clock this morning, at his residence, corner of Barclay and Denman Streets, was not entirely unexpected. The funeral arrangements have, of course, not yet been arranged. Considerable sympathy will be felt for the bereaved family, consisting of a widow, two sons and a daughter. The sons are Mr. W.M. Harrison of the “Post-Office Drug Store,” and Mr. George Harrison of Neepawa, and the daughter is Mrs. John Wemyss of Neepawa.

David Howard Harrison was a son of Milner Harrison, a native of Yorkshire, Eng., who came to Canada in 1816. He was born in the Township of London, Ont., on June 1st, 1843, and educated at the University of Toronto and McGill College, graduating M.D. in 1864. He married in April, 1866, Kate, daughter of the late George Stevenson, of Sarnia. [Note: the marriage in 1866 appears to be to Margaret Notman. The marriage to Kate Stevenson was in 1874.] Dr. Harrison practised his profession in St. Mary’s, Ont., until 1882, when he retired and settled in Manitoba. He was a large land-owner there and carried on extensive farming operations. He was also a member of the St. Mary’s Town Council and a Coroner of the County of Perth. The deceased first entered active politics in 1883, when he was returned to the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba at the General Election for Minnedosa West, in the conservative interests, being re-elected in 1887. He was sown a member of the Executive Council and appointed Minister of Agriculture, Statistics and Health on August 27th, 1886, and was Premier of Manitoba from December 26th, 1887, to January 19th, 1888, when he was succeeded by the Greenway Government.

Dr. Harrison brought his family to Vancouver in 1900 and had resided here since that time. While he did not practise his profession here he was interested in various commercial undertakings, notably the International Ice & cold Storage Company.”
