CAMERON, John, Canadian R. C. bishop, born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in February, 1827. He received his preparatory education at home, and, when sixteen years of age. went to Rome, where he spent ten years fitting himself for the priesthood. In 1853 he was ordained a priest, and at the same time received his degree as doctor of philosophy, and also of divinity. The year following, he returned to Nova Scotia, and was placed in charge of St. Francois Xavier College at Arichat, and, after the removal of this seminary to Antigonish, he acted as its president and professor of divinity for three years. He returned to Arichat in 1863, and took charge of a large parish, discharging at the same time the duties of vicar-general. In 1870 he was appointed titular bishop of Titopolis, and coadjutor to the bishop of Arichat, and was consecrated at Rome by Cardinal Cullen. After attending the sittings of the ecumenical council, he returned to his diocese in the autumn of the same year. Bishop MaeKinnon becoming infirm through age, in 1877 Dr. Cameron, his coadjutor, was constituted administrator of the diocese of Arichat, becoming bishop shortly afterward, when Bishop MaeKinnon resigned. Immediately after his appointment he removed to Antigonish, and entered with such zeal and energy upon the work before him that he never paused until he freed his diocese of the heavy debt with which it was encumbered when he entered upon his duties as bishop. He is an eloquent preacher and a thorough scholar.
