Have you considered contacting the Royal Astronomical Society of 
Canada?  http://rasc.ca/

There is a center (ie a local club) in Winnipeg and if anyone might know 
about Manitoba you should be able to find someone who knows about that 
there, or know who you should talk to. http://winnipeg.rasc.ca/

(their annual Observer's Handbook publication (starting publication in 
the early 1900's)  tracks the timezone boundary in Canada. I don't know 
when timezone tracking started in the OH but if you find the series (say 
in public or university library) the maps may give a indication as to 
what timezone were observed in Manitoba in 1960-1961.)

Astronomers (even amateur ones) care about time a lot so that would be a 
good place to start.
