I checked ancestry.com and there is a lot of information about your great uncle there. It is a pay website but you can get a 14 day free trial if you have not had a previous subscription. Here is a copy of a page that I found about him. . https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=2238&h=6517400&tid=&pid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=dkd859&_phstart=suc…
Good Luck in your search and if you need more help please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks for your reply and for your time. I have the majority of the records for him from Ancestry, Though I've still to work on that draft card yet as to the why's and who's regarding that document. The only thing I'm lacking from Ancestry is his orbit, as much as I am subscribed to Ancestry, I'm unable to access the newspaper that has him a Tohn Malcolm Fraser.. that's two things for me to work on from Ancestry.
Name Tohn Malcolm Fraser
Death Age 60
Birth Date 1906
Residence Place 1148 Robson St.
Death Date 1966
Burial Date 21/05
Obituary Date 20/05/1966
Obituary Place Vancouver British Columbia Canada
I thought I would delve into the border crossing cards that have him in McNeil Penitentiary. Currently Ancestry only hold inmate records for McNeil Penitentiary up until 1939. And John Malcolm Fraser was an inmate from April 1950. I have just received an email from nara that he is listed in the catalogues here on their website
Fraser, John Malcolm, Intake # 21275, Arrived April, 1950. His crime was Immigration Act-Illegal Entry. Additionally there may be a criminal case with the US District Courts.

Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archive Catalog and located Inmate Index Cards, ca. 1930 - 1981 in the Records of the Bureau of Prisons (Record Group 129) that pertain to the McNeil Island Penitentiary. We also located district court records for the Northwestern region in the Records of District Courts of the United States (Record Group 21). For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Seattle (RW-SE) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I just want to say thanks for the reply, after the wait due to covid, I got the needed help with finding his court records . Sadly his prison file is empty. I have to admit, I was hoping for a mug shot,
I can't express enough the gratitude I have for the help I received,
