BELANGER, Solomon, Canadian voyager, died in the parish of St. Jacques de l'Archigan, Quebec, in April 1863. He was one of the French Canadians that accompanied Sir John Franklin in his first expedition toward the north pole, and on one occasion (14 September 1821) saved the explorer's life. A canoe in which they were crossing a rapid stream overset, and Belanger held it while Franklin and a companion took their positions again. Owing to the violence of the current, Belanger was obliged to remain in the water and was rescued with great difficulty. On another occasion he was accused by Franklin of attempting to persuade one of his hunters to leave him, before which he had been esteemed highly by the explorer. See Franklin's "Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea in 1819-'22 " (London, 1823).
