Lawyer.

Born at Almonte, Ontario on 31 October 1873, he came to Manitoba with his parents and settled near Souris where two of his brothers had taken up homesteads. After completing high school and college, he articled in law with Harry Atcheson, a Souris lawyer, from 1896 to 1899, spending two later years with George W. Allan. He was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1902 and started a law practice in partnership with J. S. Hough and Isaac Campbell the following year. He remained a lawyer for nearly 40 years, being made a King’s Counsel in 1920. He served as President of the Manitoba Bar Association. He died at Vancouver, British Columbia on 10 December 1940.
