He was born into the pure-blood Abbott family in 1894 and attended Hogwarts from 1905 to 1912. After leaving school with several "Outstanding" N.E.W.T.s, he joined the then-nascent training programme for Aurors and qualified in 1914. In 1923, he was promoted to Senior Auror, and in 1940 he became the Director of the expanded Auror Training Programme.
During the global wizarding war, Abbott was instrumental in persuading the Department of Magical Law Enforcement to begin admitting witches to the Auror Training Programme. As the conflict grew, Abbott was eventually forced to send even his newest recruits into the field, a decision that would haunt him for the remainder of his life, as several of them were killed during maneuvers against the Blackrobe cabal of Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
He died of natural causes in 1967.
