Farmer, MLA (1923-1927).

Born in Huron County, Ontario on 14 July 1870, son of John McGregor and Elizabeth Ward, he farmed in the Keyes area of Manitoba and was an early participant in the United Farmers movement. In 1917, he ran in the federal election against Frederick L. Davis but was unsuccessful. He was elected to the Manitoba Legislature in 1922, representing the Gladstone constituency, serving a single term. He died in 1948 and was buried in the Neepawa Cemetery.
