He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1945 in Honours Psychology, a Bachelor of Social Work in 1948 and a Master of Social Work in 1958. During these years, Gripton worked in various areas (Central YMCA (1945-1946), Big Brother movement (1946-1947), first president of the Toronto Local, Social Services Employees Union of America, Toronto Children's Aid Society (1951-1956), and Director of Training and Personnel (1956-1960).
