The position of Provincial Secretary was particularly important in Manitoba from 1870 to 1874, as that province's institutions were being established. The province had no Premier during this period, and its Lieutenant-Governor acted as the de facto leaders of government. The early Provincial Secretaries (including Alfred Boyd and Henry Joseph Clarke[1]) were the most prominent elected officials in the province, and are retrospectively regarded as Premiers in many modern sources.
