Biography / Administrative history
Prime Minister of Canada
Alexander Mackenzie was born in Scotland and was a stone mason when he emigrated to Canada in 1842. By 1850 he became an active supporter of George Brown and Secretary of the Lambton Reform Committee. For two years, 1852-1854, he was editor of a Reform newspaper, the Lambton Shield. He was first elected to the Legislative Assembly in 1861. He was elected to the House of Commons in the first federal election in 1867 and he remained a Member of the Commons until his death in 1892. He was Prime Minister of Canada and Minister of Public Works, 1873-1878. After the defeat of his government he continued to lead the Liberal party until ill health forced him to resign from that post in 1880. Mackenzie was married twice and was survived by one daughter.
