Adam was born in Dumfries, Scotland on February 7, 1871. When he was fourteen, he and his parents immigrated to Iowa. Adam studied in Chicago to be a veterinarian and later moved to Airdrie, Alberta. After the war, he settled in the Teepee Creek area (N 1/2-19-74-3-6), where land had been opened for settlement by veterans. His services as a veterinarian were in great demand.
