Born in New Brunswick in 1920, he studied at Mount Allison University and the University of Minnesota before joining Dalhousie's mathematics faculty in 1953, becoming department chair in 1966. He also served as University Registrar from 1973-1985, Secretary of Senate, Secretary of the Board of Governors and Assistant to the President, before retiring in 1986 and being appointed Professor Emeritus in 1988. He helped to establish Dalhousie's Transition Year Program, was a founding member of Halifax Grammar School, and worked for a number of years on the curriculum committee of the Nova Scotia Department of Education. He died in 1999.
