Canadian Politician. Knowles was born on June 18, 1908, in Los Angeles, California, later moving to Manitoba, Canada, where he received a B.A. in 1930 from Brandon College. He later became a United Church Minister, and then entered politics. Knowles became a Member of Parliament upon the death of J.S. Wordsworth in 1942, and served in that seat until 1984. As a Member of Parliament he was a founding member of the New Democrat Party, as well as an outspoken crusader on several issues including better pensions for the elderly, women's rights, and more improved housing. After his death on June 9, 1997, he was made an Honourary Officer of the House of Commons and was called one of 'Canada's Great Parliamentarians' for his major accomplishments. He was the subject of the biography, "Stanley Knowles: The Man From Winnipeg North Centre" by Susan Mann Trofimenkoff. (bio by: K)
