He graduated from Dalhousie University with his BA in 1892 and LLB in 1894, and was called to the Nova Scotia Bar that same year. In 1913 he became King's counsel (crown attorney) and in 1925 was appointed to the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia. He was also a stipendiary magistrate from 1906-1920. Graham was active in politics, serving as a town councillor in New Glasgow in 1898 and mayor from 1899–1900; he represented Pictou County as a Liberal in the House of Assembly between 1916–1925. He died in 1956 at the age of 85.
