Born in Huron County, Ontario in February 1872, he received his education there then opened a photographic studio at Brussels, Ontario. He came to Manitoba briefly in 1901 before returning east to dispose of his business. He came to Hartney in 1904 and bought the Hartney Photo Studio, taking numerous photographs of pioneer farming in the region. On 5 September 1906, he married Mary Lilly Morden (1887-1985) and they had two daughters: Christina Janet McArter (1908-1924) and Margaret Ellen McArter (1910-?, wife of Max Hohenstein). He died at Hartney on 30 April 1915.
