Lawyer, civil servant.

Born at Woodstock, Ontario in 1860, he graduated from the University of Toronto in 1880 and came to Winnipeg in 1881 where he articled as a law student to the firm of Ross, Killam and Haggart. After he was called to the Manitoba Bar, he joined the office of Sir James Aikins. In 1888 he was appointed Deputy Registrar in the Land Titles office, and in 1916 he became District Registrar. He was one of the foremost real property lawyers in Canada. He was a founding member, in 1906, of the St. Charles Country Club. He died unmarried at the Winnipeg General Hospital on 10 April 1917 and was buried in the St. James Anglican Cemetery.
