He earned a B.A. at Sir George Williams College (1949), M.A. in Psychology, Bio-metrics and Philosophy of Science from the University Minnesota (1950) and a PhD in Psychology from McGill (1957). In 1960 he accepted an invitation to establish a Department of Psychology at Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Québec and an appointment as an Associate Professor of Psychology.

He died in 2005.
