History

Milton Neil Campbell was born on January 21, 1881 in Greenvale, Prince Edward Island to Ewen and Isabel (Johnson) Campbell. He received his early education in Prince Edward Island and attended Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown.

After graduation, Campbell joined a railway company and moved in 1902 to the North-West Territories (later known as Saskatchewan). He worked as a station agent and telegraph operator until 1909, when he began to farm in the Pelly, Saskatchewan district. In 1921, Campbell was elected to the House of Commons as the Progressive Party member for the Mackenzie constituency. He resigned from his seat in 1933 to become vice-chairman of the Tariff Board of Canada, a position he held until his retirement in 1943. Campbell retired to Hamilton, Ontario and later resided in London, Ontario.
