Eligibility Colleagues, family and friends have established an annual fellowship at The University of Manitoba in honour of the late Douglas R. Grimes, P. Eng., President of Wardrop Engineering Inc. Mr. Grimes was not only a talented structural engineer but was a gifted manager and leader of people. At the same time as he served Wardrop Engineering for 33 years, he also worked diligently for his profession and his community and made tremendous contributions to both. Mr. Grimes was born in Montreal and graduated with his B. Eng. from McGill University in 1954. He then attended Queen’s University and graduated with his M.Sc. in 1956. He moved to Winnipeg in 1959.
He served as President of the Association of Professional Engineers and as President of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Manitoba. The Association of Professional Engineers honoured him with both the Merit Award and the Outstanding Service Award. In 1993, the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers presented him with the Meritorious Service Award for Professional Service. Mr. Grimes spent considerable time working in and for his community. He was a founding member of the Community Service Council and the Winnipeg Boys and Girls Club and served many years on both of their Boards. He was active for many years with the United Way, the Riverside Lions Club and at the Norberry Community Club. He was also an active sportsman, enjoying squash and curling. He loved to watch both professional and amateur hockey.
