Robie Lewis Reid was a noted historian and jurist in British Columbia, as well as an avid collector of Canadian history books. He was born in Steam Mill Village, Kings County, on 3 November 1866 and attended Pictou Academy before studying law at Dalhousie University, graduating in 1890. In 1893, he and Frederic William Howay formed the law firm of Howay & Reid in New Westminster, BC. In 1907, he co-founded Bowser, Reid & Wallbridge with William J. Bowser and D.S. Wallbridge. He was a Bencher of the Law Society of British Columbia from 1927-1943 and is credited with founding the British Columbia Historical Quarterly. He died on 6 February 1945.
