Vermont Adjutant General. He attended Barre schools and graduated from Goddard Seminary, afterwards working at a local granite quarry. He joined 57th Pioneer Infantry and deployed to France for World War I. Enlisting as a Private, he rose to Sergeant Major before receiving his commission in 1918. Campbell served in France from September, 1918 to June, 1919 and was discharged in July, 1919. After the war he graduated from Albany Business College, studied at the University of Maine and received a law degree from National University (now George Washington University). Campbell practiced law in Northfield. A Republican, he was Assistant Secretary of the Vermont Senate from 1927 to 1931 and Secretary from 1931 to 1933. From 1933 to 1941 he was Vermont's Motor Vehicle Commissioner. Campbell maintained his membership in the Vermont National Guard and rose through the ranks to Colonel and commander of the 172nd Infantry Regiment, a unit of the 43rd Infantry Division. He mobilized with 172nd Infantry Regiment in 1941, and was training at Camp Blanding, Florida during preparation for overseas service when he was called back to Vermont and assigned as Assistant Adjutant General during the long illness of longtime Adjutant General Herbert T. Johnson. He became Adjutant General when Johnson retired in December, and served until 1955. In retirement he resided in Northfield. The Vermont National Guard armory in Berlin is named for him.
