Lawyer and war veteran Gilbert Earle Logan, the son of Alma Willigar and Solomon Edgar Logan, was born 8 August 1886 at Portland, New Brunswick (now part of Saint John). Educated in Saint John public schools, he later graduated from King's College Law School with the degree of B.C.L. and established a law practice in Saint John. On 9 September 1912 he married Emma Z. Irwin, and they had three children, including a son, Rodman.
During the First World War, Earle Logan served with the 38th Ottawa Infantry Battalion and was wounded at Passchendaele. At war's end, he became president of the Saint John Branch of the Great War Veterans' Association and also served as provincial secretary of that organization. He was active in the Canadian Legion, the Masonic Order, the Orange Order and the Saint Andrews Society. In addition to practising law, Logan served as police magistrate for the parish of Lancaster and secretary of the New Brunswick Board of Commissioners of Public Utilities. He died in July 1962.
