William Firth MacGregor (also McGregor)

1896 - ?

Island Arts and Crafts Society
B.C. Society of Fine Arts (Member 1927-?)

William Firth MacGregor was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1896.

He exhibited with the Island Arts and Crafts Society in their 1927 annual show, an oil portrait of Betty (Bette) Weston, the daughter of W.P. Weston.

MacGregor exhibited with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in 1927, 1936, and 1937.

He exhibited his work in the B.C. Artists annuals at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 1937 and 1938.

A William MacGregor died in Victoria on November 12 1973 at the age of 77 according to B.C. Vital Statistics, which would give a birthdate c1896. Also, B.C. Vital Statistics lists the death of a William MacGregor in New Westminster on February 18 1958 at the age of 62, which would also give a birth date c1896. A bit more research would be required to clarify this.
