McLEAN, John, Canadian Anglican bishop, born in Portsay, Banffshire, Scotland, 17 November, 1828. He was graduated at Aberdeen university in 1851, came to Canada soon afterward, and in 1858 was ordained a priest by the bishop of Huron. He was appointed curate of St. Paul's cathedral, London Ont., in that year. In 1866 he removed to the northwest, and was appointed rector of St. John's cathedral, and professor of divinity and warden in St. John's college, Winnipeg. A few years later he became archdeacon of Assiniboia, and in 1871 received the degree of D. C. L. from the universities of Trinity college, Toronto, and Bishop's college, Lennoxville, and that of D.D. from Kenyon college, Ohio. When the diocese of Saskatchewan was constituted in 1874, Dr. McLean was nominated bishop of the new see, and was consecrated at Lambeth the same year by the archbishop of Canterbury. In 1880 Bishop McLean founded Emmanuel college, in which he is now (1888) warden and professor of divinity.
