Born near Dundee, Scotland, he was ordained in 1918 and went to South Africa in 1920 as a missionary of the United Free Church of Scotland.* After seven years in Tembuland he moved to Lovedale as chaplain (1927-42) and principal (1942- 55). On his retirement Lovedale passed into government control. He was a gifted writer and edited the South African Outlook (1932-63).
