Born in London on 25 April 1918, when he was still an infant he and his parents immigrated to South Africa. A brilliant student, Freeman matriculated from Cape Town High School in Gardens at the age of 15 as one of the highest-scoring students in the Cape. He graduated from the University of Cape Town (UCT) at the very young age of 19 with a BSc (engineering) degree, awarded with distinction, having along the way received two class prizes, six class medals, as well as bronze, silver and gold medals!
