Frederick Stanley Haines was born at Meaford, Ontario in 1879. He displayed an early ambition to become an artist and was able to finance his studies at the Central Ontario School of Art under G.A. Reid and William Cruikshank.
Haines first exhibited with the Ontario Society of Artists in 1901 and in 1906 was elected a member. He travelled to Belgium in 1913 where he studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux Arts, Antwerp, under Juliaan de Vriendt and was awarded a gold medal in figure painting.
In 1919 he became an associate member of the Royal Canadian Academy and started making his first prints. In 1924 he was elected President of the Ontario Society of Artists. In 1928 he was appointed Curator, Art Gallery of Toronto, a post he held until his appointment as Principal of the Ontario College of Art in 1932. In 1939 Haines was elected president of the Royal Canadian Academy.
Haines remained in his position at the Ontario College of Art until 1951 and died in 1960. The year after his death, a memorial exhibit of his work was held at the Art Gallery of Toronto and travelled to the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Willistead Art Gallery, Windsor, Ontario and Sarnia Public Library and Art Gallery.
