Biographical history

William Campbell Dunlop was born on 19 March 1897 in Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, son of John and Elizabeth Campbell Dunlop. Dunlop graduated from the Maritime Business College in 1914 and in 1915 joined the 63rd Halifax Rifles. Following World War I, Dunlop returned to Halifax and completed a law degree in 1922 from Dalhousie Law School. Dunlop spent 15 years practicing in Windsor, Nova Scotia and serving as town magistrate, before moving to the firm of Walker, Wickwire and Dunlop in Halifax in 1940. Dunlop was an active member of a number of associations and societies, including the Canadian Bar Association, Nova Scotia Barristers Society and The Royal Canadian Legion, and served as a member of the Halifax Board of School Commissioners (between 1949 and 1956). Dunlop was active in local politics, serving as Halifax Deputy Mayor, 1957-58, and as an alderman on Halifax City Council for three terms.
