Born in London, England, in 1926, Anthony Gargrave came to Canada in 1940 to live with his brother, Bert Gargrave, and attend school in Vancouver. He represented the provincial riding of Mackenzie as a CCF and NDP member of the Legislative Assembly from 1952-1966. After retiring from the legislature, he ran a failed campaign for mayor of Vancouver, and continued his career as a lawyer.
