Born in the United States on 8 November 1875, he came to Canada in 1882 and taught school at Halifax, Nova Scotia. He later moved to Winnipeg where he was a manual training teacher and served as Principal of Wellington School (1925-1926) and Pinkham School (1926-1928). On 2 February 1907, he married Desdemona Millicent McLeod (1880-1936) at Gladstone.
