Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, he joined the civil service in Ottawa at age 17 and remained with the government for his entire career. He served as private secretary to three successive Ministers of Justice. In addition to his government duties he was also a prolific writer delving into Canadian history, geography, and bibliography. He wrote and edited many books and articles including several entries in the Canadian encyclopedia, Canada and Its Provinces.
