Richard Price Frazer is renting
of his father a farm of six hundred and forty acres in township 16, range

demonstrating his ability as a practical agriculturist.
He was born at Huns Valley,
Manitoba, Jan 16, 1885, a son of George and Susan (Price) Frazer. His Father
is one of the most prominent men in the district around Huns Valley. Richard
P. Frazer is one of a family of four children. His education was received
in the district schools and this was supplemented by one year in the
Winnipeg Business College. He laid aside his
books in 1909 and gave his entire attention to the development and improvement
of the farm which he had previously rented from his father. He does mixed
farming and specializes in the breeding and fattening of stock, keeping
twenty-five horses and forty head of cattle.
Mr. Frazer married, in
Minnedosa, December 20, 1911, Miss May Grey, a daughter of Thomas and Sydney
Grey, the former a commercial traveler residing in Minnedosa. Mr. and Mrs.
Frazer are well known in the Clan William district, where their many qualities
of mind and character have gained them a wide acquaintance.
Mr. Frazer is a conservative
in his political beliefs and is a devout adherent of the Methodist church.
Although only twenty-eight years of age, he
has already begun a most promising agriculturel career. He is one of the
many young farmers of this section who make it their aim to keep in touch
with the most modern methods and to study the development of farming as
a systematic science. His many friends do not hesitate to predict for him
continued prosperity and success in his chosen line.
