Biographical Sketch
Cyril Frederick Harshaw Carson was born on May 18th, 1900, in Toronto, Ontario, to D.J. Carson and Ermine Harshaw. He attended Humberside Collegiate in Toronto and was admitted to Osgoode Hall Law School in 1916, where he was an Osgoode Hall gold medalist when called to the Bar in 1921. While attending law school, Carson was a member of the Delta Chi Fraternity (Osgoode Hall Chapter). Commencing legal practice with the law firm of Tilley, Johnston, Thomson and Parmenter, he remained with that firm and its successor, Tilley, Carson and Findlay, for his entire legal career. Carson was appointed a King's Counsel in 1936. That same year, Carson was elected a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada, a position he held until his death in 1980. He served as Treasurer of the Law Society from 1950 to 1958. Carson was active in several legal organizations, serving as President of the Lawyers Club in 1932 and Honourary Treasurer of the Canadian Bar Association from 1944 to 1948. During this time, he also served as General Counsel to the Bank of Nova Scotia and as Associate General Counsel for Ontario to the Canadian Bankers Association. In 1957, he was awarded an honorary LL.D. from Queen's University. From the early 1950s to the late 1970s, Carson was a director with several Canadian companies, including the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Hiram Walker-Gooderham and Worts Limited, Canada Permanent Trust Company, Falconbridge Nickel Mines Limited, and Manufacturers Life Insurance Company. Carson died in Toronto on October 22nd, 1980.
