Born at Winnipeg on 15 March 1909, son of Alexander Murray Campbell and Annie Josephine Hogg, he graduated from the Manitoba Medical College in 1933. He practiced medicine for a time at the Ninette Sanatorium and later in general practice at Winnipeg. He was a senior member of the Canadian Medical Society and served as President of the Winnipeg Medical Society (1962-1963).

Campbell was a keen historian and collector of historical documents, his forebearers having come down river from Fishers Landing in 1875 on the International, a stern-wheeled paddle steamboat. He was a member of the Council of the Manitoba Historical Society (President, 1957-1959). In the 1960s, he served on the Historical Committee of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation. 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.
