McINTYRE, Daniel Eugene, Canadian physician, born in Oban, Argyleshire, Scotland, in 1812. After completing his education, he was for a time employed in a mercantile establishment in Glasgow, but he studied medicine in the universities of that city and Edinburgh, and was graduated in the former in 1834. In 1835 he removed to Canada and settled in Williamstown, Ont. During the rebellion of 1837, while acting as surgeon of militia, he was taken prisoner by the insurgents. He remained on active military service at Lancaster till 1849, was gazetted major of the Stormont battalion in 1854, and on his subsequent retirement from the service was granted the rank of lieutenant-colonel. On the suppression of the rebellion he resumed practice at Williamstown. In 1849 he was elected warden of the united counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry, re-elected in 1850, and in that year was appointed sheriff of the united counties, which office he has held ever since. He was an ardent reformer, and the friend and ally of John Sandfield Macdonald.--His son, Alexander Fraser, Canadian lawyer, born in Williamstown, Ontario, 25 December, 1847, was educated at Cornwall grammar-school and McGill university. He then studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1872, and practised at Cornwall and Ottawa. From 1875 till 1878 he was intrusted by the Mackenzie administration with the conduct of important suits against the government in the exchequer court. He has been engaged probably more than any other lawyer in prosecuting the claims of government contractors before the exchequer and supreme courts. In 1875 he was elected to the Ontario assembly for Cornwall, and in 1882 was an unsuccessful candidate in the Liberal interests for the Dominion parliament. In September, 1885, he was elected president of the Ontario Young Liberal association, and he has been president of the Liberal association of Ottawa. He is widely known as a successful lawyer and Liberal politician.
