Educator.

Born in Scotland on 2 May 1877, son of Peter and Jane Crerar, he emigrated to Canada with his family in 1883 and resided at Medicine Hat, North West Territories [now Alberta]. Ten years later, he received a BA degree in modern languages from Manitoba College. He worked for briefly as a teacher in Winnipeg schools, later serving as the Principal of Plum Coulee School (1902-1904), Melita School (1904-1905), Rapid City School (1905-1907), and Emerson School (1907-1910). He died suddenly at Emerson on 10 September 1910 and was buried alongside his mother in Brookside Cemetery.
