Richtik, J., and D. Hutch. "When Jewish settlers farmed in Manitoba." Canadian Geographical Journal 95(1) (August-September 1977): 32-35.
Traces the history of Bender Hamlet, a planned agricultural village located in the Interlake (the area between lakes Winnipeg and Manitoba), about 80 km from Winnipeg. The settlement was organized by a land speculator, Jacob Bender, in 1902, and grew and prospered for 20 years before it finally collapsed and disappeared.
