Historia biográfica

Arthur Martin Zimmerman was born on September 11, 1886 in Ontario. He lived in the Acton district in Ontario for several years before joining a harvesters' excursion and moving west. Zimmerman worked for deep-well digging outfits for several years then purchased a quarter section of farm land near Disley, Saskatchewan in 1911. Crop failures forced him to give up his farm, and in 1916 he accepted a position as an engineer with T. A. Burrows Lumber Company at Grandview, Manitoba. The following year he returned to Saskatchewan to operate the steam engines at the Lumsden flour mills.

After the First World War, Zimmerman moved to Foxwarren, Manitoba and then to Neepawa, where he worked as a shop mechanic in Pedlar's Garage. In 1930 he set up his own business, Art's Garage. The property was later purchased by the North Star Oil Company. Zimmerman accepted a position at the Neepawa Airport in Neepawa, Manitoba, working on airplane engines until the airport's closure in 1950.

Zimmerman died on December 22, 1979.

Zimmerman married Margaret Jane Sayers in 1908. They had four children; Charlie, Arthur, Margaret, and Nell.
