MORRIN, Joseph, Canadian benefactor, born in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, about 1792 ; died in Quebec, 29 August, 1861. He came to Canada with his parents at an early age, was educated in Quebec, studied medicine, and completed his course in Edinburgh and London, he began practice at Quebec, and rose to eminence in his profession. Mr. Morrin was one of the three founders of Beau-port asylum, served as a magistrate, and twice as mayor of Quebec, and was employed by the city corporation to urge before the British government the claims of Quebec to be the capital of Lower Canada. A short time before his death he gave a large sum of money for the erection of a Presbyterian college in Quebec, known as Morrin college. As a physician he was regarded as without a superior in Lower Canada, and he was the first president of the medical board of that province.
