Merchant, municipal official.

Born at Glasgow, Scotland, he came to Canada and the Pipestone district of Manitoba in 1904. Nine years later, he became a hardware merchant in the unincorporated village of Pipestone. He was an elder of the local United Church and superintendent of the Sunday School. He was a member of the regional advisory committee under The Veterans' Land Act and served on the board of the Children's Aid Society. He was elected as a councillor of the Rural Municipality of Pipestone in 1924, a position he held for over 20 years. He represented the Western Judicial District of the Union of Manitoba Municipalities from 1938 to 1943, served one year as its Vice-President, and President from 1945 to 1946. He was a member of the Manitoba Municipal Assessment Equalization and Appeal Board. He died on 18 July 1953, and was buried in the Pipestone Cemetery. He was survived by a son and two daughters, his wife having pre-deceased him in 1951.
