Financial agent.

Born at Melrose, Scotland on 16 February 1874, son of Richard Waugh and Janet Deans, brother of R. D. Waugh, James Waugh and William Waugh, he came to Canada in 1883 and was educated at Manitoba College. He commenced a career with the Commercial Union Assurance Company, at Winnipeg, in 1894. He was promoted to Branch Manager for Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1898, resigning to form his own financial services firm in 1907. By 1911, Waugh was a partner in the firm of Brydges & Waugh Limited, Keewayden Building, Winnipeg. In 1897, he married Maude C. Moore (?-?) of Vancouver, British Columbia. They had three daughters. He was a member of the Manitoba Club, St. Charles Country Club, Winnipeg Rowing Club, AF & AM, and IOF. His recreations included shooting and golf. He died in Winnipeg on 15 November 1930, of carbon monoxide gas poisoning, while storing his automobile away for the winter in a garage owned by friend James H. Elliott.
