Charles F. Bentley (1909-1993) was born in Charlottetown, educated at West Kent School and Prince of Wales College. He earned a BA from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and an LLB from Dalhousie Law School. Originally, Charles had studied engineering and hoped to become an architect. In the end, however, he decided to become a lawyer in order to enter the family law firm, MacLeod & Bentley. Charles was always interested in art. He displayed talent at an early age, but set aside his passion in order to earn a living and support his family. Upon retirement, however, he returned to creating art. At the time, he said that retirement had provided him with the time to do what he “always wanted to do – paint.”
