Born in Quebec in March 1861, he began a career in banking with the Bank of Montreal where he stayed for 23 years, leaving to become Manager of the Inverness Railway and Coal Company for the firm of Mackenzie and Mann, based at Inverness, Nova Scotia. He resigned in July 1906 to become a bank inspector with the Northern Crown Bank in Winnipeg. A few months later he was made superintendent of branches and, in 1909, he was appointed its General Manager on the retirement of J. W. C. O’Grady.

He and wife Marion had three daughters: Diana Vernon Stewart Campbell (b 1900), Marjorie Evelyn Forbes Campbell (b 1902), and Cynthia Isabel Campbell (b 1907).
