Librarian.

Born at Manchester, England in 1875, he graduated from Owens College then worked for a time as a reporter on the Manchester Guardian newspaper. He started his career as a librarian at the John Rylands Library. He emigrated to Winnipeg in 1916, becoming librarian for the University of Manitoba the next year. A student of Sanskrit and Mohammedanism, he collected Persian, Arabic, Turkish and Hindu books and manuscripts, and Oriental rugs. He retired in 1937 and died at his Winnipeg home on 11 February 1943, with burial in the Brookside Cemetery.
