    Norman Dolman was born in Wandsworth, London, England in 1926. He married Doreen Witton in Surrey, England in 1946. He later emigrated to Canada.

    He worked as an optometrist in Edmonton and St. Albert. After serving on the executive of the Alberta New Democratic Party, he ran for the Alberta New Democratic Party in the 1967 Alberta provincial election but was unsuccessful. In 1968, he ran in the Canadian federal election in the Edmonton Centre electoral district for the federal New Democratic Party, ending up in third place. Later that year, he sought the party leadership for the provincial New Democratic Party but withdrew his name.
