He was born in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 1862. He had a son of the same name, known as Eric Baume who was an Australian novelist and journalist.[1]

From 1902 to 1905 he was one of the three Members of Parliament representing the multi-member City of Auckland electorate.[2]

Before 1905, he had been associated with the New Liberal Party group, which disappeared after 1905.

In 1905, these multi-member electorates were split up, and he won the Auckland East electorate, which he held to 1910, when he died.[2] In the resulting by-election, he was replaced by his cousin Arthur Myers.[3]
