Born at Winnipeg on 11 December 1906, he attended Aberdeen School, St. John’s Technical High School, and the University of Manitoba, obtaining from the latter an Arts degree (1926) and a law degree (1929). He articled with the firm of Isbister and Morton, then was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1931. He established a law firm in partnership with Louis S. Matlin, with offices at Winnipeg and Beausejour. He was made a King’s Counsel in 1952. He changed partners several times and, after 1960, devoted much of his attention to business management. He was a director for the YMHA, Glendale Country Club, The Little Theatre, Winnipeg Community Chest, and an advisory board member of SHARE. He died at Winnipeg on 26 November 1996.
