He studied medicine at London Hospital in 1908, and tried to make the British team, but was not selected, so represented Australasia at the 1912 Olympics. In August 1914 he resigned from his hospital work and joined the 14th Battalion, London Regiment. In 1917 he returned from war and established a long medical career in Australia. Prior to his death in 1958 he bequeathed his estate to the University of Melbourne to establish scholarships.
