DUNLOP, William, Canadian physician, born in Greenock, Scotland, about 1795; died in Canada in 1848. He was educated as a physician, served as a regimental surgeon in the war with the United States in 1812'5, and in India; published a book, founded a newspaper, lectured, and engaged in other enterprises before he came to Canada in 1826 with John Galt, the Scottish novelist. He was a contributor to "Blackwood's Magazine," and had been intimately acquainted with John Wilson, Maginn, Hogg, and others mentioned in "The Recreations of Christopher North." After arriving in Canada he contributed to this magazine "The Autobiography of a Rat," and wrote much for the local literary and political journals. In 1836 he founded the Toronto literary club, before which he frequently lectured. The first parliament after the union of Upper and Lower Canada met in 1841 at Kingston, and Dunlop was returned to it for Huron, which he represented until his resignation in 1846. He was noted for his eccentricities.
