BRYMNER, Douglas, Canadian archivist, born in Greenock, Scotland, in 1823. He was educated at the Greenock grammar school, and received a thorough mercantile training. He began business, and subsequently admitted his brother as a partner, but was forced to retire in 1856 in consequence of failing health. In 1857 he immigrated to Canada, and subsequently became editor of the " Presbyterian," and about the same time was appointed associate editor of the Montreal "Herald." In 1872 he was made historical archivist of the Dominion, and in this capacity has been awarded much praise for his painstaking labors in collecting the historical records of the Dominion and the provinces and in their selection and arrangement. Under the pen-name of " Tummas Treddles" he wrote humorous articles for the Montreal " Herald," was for some time a contributor to the "Scottish American Journal," New York, and has translated the odes of Horace into verse in the Lowland Scottish dialect.
