He was a member of the Council of the Manitoba Historical Society for many years, and a past President of the Society (1957-1959). He also served as President of the Winnipeg Philatelic Society, and a member of the Royal Philatelic Society, Winnipeg Rotary Club, Southwood Golf Club, Winnipeg Winter Club, and St. Stephens-Broadway United Church.
