An active member of the local community, he served as Convener of the Secondary School Committee and School Governor of Robert Gordon's College, and saw long tenure as both member and assessor of the University Council and Court.

In recognition of this work, he was awarded the Honorary Degree of LL.D by the University of Aberdeen in September 1960.
