Born at Winnipeg around 1922, son of Aylmer E.

He entered the Manitoba Law School after the war and received an LLB degree in 1948. He articled with E. K. Williams, then remained with the firm as a civil litigator, becoming a partner in 1953. He was made a Queen’s Counsel in 1963. He left private law practice in 1969 to become a full-time member of the academic staff of the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba, a role he filled for 18 years. He died, unmarried, at Winnipeg on 2 February 2001 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
