George Monro Grant (1835-1902)
George Monro Grant
George Monro Grant was a Presbyterian minister and educator. Born and educated in Nova Scotia, he went to Scotland in 1853 to attend Glasgow University. He was ordained in the Church of Scotland in 1860 and returned to Nova Scotia in 1863 to become minister at St. Matthew's Church, Halifax.

In 1877, he left St. Matthew's to become Principal at Queen's University, Kingston. He remained Principal for 25 years until his death in 1902 at age 67. When he started at Queen's, it was a small and financially insecure college but he transformed it into a national institution by raising an endowment fund and acquiring major scholars.

He was a leader in the Presbyterian Church in Canada and moderator in 1889. At the same time he was a major spokesman for ecumenicism.
