GRANT, George Monroe, Canadian educator, born in Stellarton, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, 22 December 1835. He was educated at Pictou academy and at the West River seminary of the Presbyterian Church in his native province, winning at the latter, in 1853, a bursary that entitled him to a theological course in the University of Glasgow. Here he distinguished himself, and on his return to Nova Scotia he spent some time as a missionary in the maritime provinces, and in May, 1863, became pastor of St. Matthew's Church, Halifax, which office he retained until 1877, when he was appointed principal of Queen's University, Kingston. In the summer of 1872 he accompanied Sandford Fleming on a tour across the continent, and the same year published "Ocean to Ocean," a diary of his journey. He is a contributor to periodicals, and editor of "Picturesque Canada."
