Robert Alexander Fyfe (1816-1878)
Robert Alexander Fyfe
Robert Alexander Fyfe was a Baptist minister and educator.

Fyfe was born at St. André, near Montreal, the son of Scots who had emigrated from Dundee. Overcoming severe financial and health problems, he entered the Newton institute, near Boston, and graduated in 1842. Fyfe was ordained to the ministry at the Brookline Massachusetts Baptist Church on 25 Aug. 1842, and went on to be the pastor of several churches in Canada and in the United States.

In 1860, Fyfe became principal of the newly-organized Baptist college at Woodstock, Ontario, and he retained this position until his death at Woodstock on September 4, 1878. Through the institute, he exerted great influence on all aspects of denominational life. After Fyfe’s death, the theology department was moved in 1881 to Toronto as the Toronto Baptist College; in 1887 it was incorporated as McMaster University. The Canadian Literary Institute, which had remained in Woodstock, was in affiliation and it was renamed Woodstock College.
