Frank Llewellyn Gwillim (law partner of Frederick George Crisp)

“Prominent among the barristers of Vancouver is Frank Llewellyn Gwillim, practicing in this city as a member of the firm of Gwillim, Crisp & Mackay. Mr. Gwillim is a native of England, born in Herefordshire, July 6, 1870, a son of James and Olivia Maria (Spencer) Gwillim, and a representative of an old English family. He began his education in the public and private schools of his native country, and in 1882 came to Canada, locating in Manitoba, where he completed his studies in the public schools. Having determined to make the practice of law his life work, he was in 1890 articled to William White, K. C., now living retired in London, England. Three years later he was called to the bar of the Northwest Territories, and in 1897 was made a member of the Manitoba bar. In the same year he came to the Kootenay district, British Columbia, and was admitted to the bar there as solicitor, going in the following year to the Yukon district, where he resumed the practice of his profession, forming a partnership with Frederick George Crisp under the firm name of Gwillim & Crisp, Mr. Gwillim having the distinction of being the first public administrator in the Yukon territory. Mr. Gwillim left the Yukon in 1906 and came to Vancouver, leaving his partner in Alaska to look after the interests of the firm there. He was called to the bar of British Columbia in the same year, and in 1908 was joined by Mr. Crisp. They continued under the former name until 1911, when John S. Mackay was taken into partnership, the firm style being now Gwillim, Crisp & Mackay. Mr. Gwillim gives a great deal of his time to his law practice, but is also connected with a great many of the leading corporate concerns of British Columbia.

Mr. Gwillim gives his political allegiance to the conservative party, but is not active in politics, although interested in the growth and progress of the city where he makes his home. He holds membership in the Vancouver Club and in the Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club and fraternally is connected with the Inde- pendent Order of Odd Fellows, the Ancient Order of United Workmen and the Sons of England Benevolent Society. His religious views are in accord with the doctrines of the Anglican church.”
