  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial; Finisher.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: According to the 1921 Canada census he immigrated from the USA in 1902 and became a naturalized Canadian citizen in 1906; the 1916 Prairie provinces census states it was 1905. The 1911 Canada states he arrived in 1901 and achieved citizenship in 1903.
      The 1911 Canada census shows him as a photographer in Swift Current, SK; another photographer, Albert Goodman, who had arrived that year from England roomed with the family and was likely an employee or partner. By 1916 he had taken up farming in Saskatchewan.
      While he had established a photographic business in Vancouver by 1919, he had abandoned the trade by 1921 for fruit farming on the Sunshine Coast at the village of Hopkin's Landing.
      He is listed in the 1922 business directory in the small Sunshine Coast community of Grantham's Landing where his wife also keeps a boarding house. In the 1923 and 1924 directories he is working as a photographer in Gibson's Landing and in the 1925 directory he is back as a photographer in Grantham's Landing.
