Lawyer, municipal official.

Born at Argyle on 9 March 1898, son of Alexander M. Campbell and Mary McNabb, he attended Brant School and Stonewall School. While studying law he articled to the firm of Munson, Allan, Laird, and Davis. He graduated from the Manitoba Law School in 1923 and, after three years practicing law in Winnipeg, he moved to Teulon in 1926. He was made a Queen’s Counsel in 1953. He retired in 1968. He served on the Teulon municipal council, including two terms as Mayor (1932-1933, 1937-1938), and on the Teulon Hospital Board. On 14 July 1928, he married Mary Gertrude Burrow (?-1975) at Stonewall. They had no children. He was a member of the Teulon United Church. He died at the St. Boniface Hospital on 19 May 1985 and was buried in the Argyle Cemetery.
