Early life, education, career
Page was born in Norfolk to Ivor A. Page (1864–1954), a lawyer, and his wife Addie (1863–1922). He graduated from Matthew Fontaine Maury High School in 1911. In 1916, he received a law degree from Washington and Lee University, where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon. After graduation, he joined his father's law firm.
Page married Annie E. Miller (1893–1970) in 1916. They had one son, Walter A. Page, also a lawyer.
Page served six two-year terms (1924–1936) in the House of Delegates, then two four-year terms in the Senate (1936–1944).
Page ran twice for Governor of Virginia, losing the Democratic primary in 1937 to Lieutenant Governor James Hubert Price and in 1941 to fellow Norfolk lawyer and former United States Representative Colgate Darden. Page received about 14% of the vote in each primary election.
Page died June 21, 1962. He was interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Norfolk.
