Maisie Howard was born in Halifax in 1918 and died in May of 1980. Her brief but memorable career left its mark in the annals of Nova Scotia Sport history. Howard began playing golf at fourteen, was self-taught, but heeded the advice of well-known golfers of that era, both Frank Mielke and Reg Babcock.

Her ability earned her numerous titles in the 70’s when Howard won the Nova Scotia Ladies Championship in 1937 and 1939, and the Maritime Ladies Championship in 1938 and 1939. She played in the Ladies Canadian Open in 1936, 1937, and 1938 and was First Flight Runner-up in 1936.

Tuberculosis cut short Howard’s golfing career, but “from the age of 17 to 20, she played amazing golf”. Maisie Howard was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1982.
