Born at Woburn, Massachusetts on 8 November 1875, son of John Conly Fultz (1832-1921) and Margaret Grey Lordly (1833-1909), he came to Canada in 1882 and taught school at Halifax, Nova Scotia. By 1921, he moved to Winnipeg and was a manual training teacher for the Winnipeg School District. He taught at Aberdeen School (1921-1924) and was Principal of Wellington School (1924-1926) and Pinkham School (1926-1928) before returning to the classroom at Aberdeen School (1928-1935), after which he retired.
