Notice biographique

John M. King was born in Yitholm, Scotland in 1829. While still quite young, he enrolled at the University of Edinburgh where he studied mathematics, philosophy, and theology graduating with an M.A. in 1856. After furthering his theological studies at the University of Halle in Germany, he came to Canada to take up Presbyterian ministries in Galt, Ingersoll, Columbus and Whitby, Ontario (then known as Canada West). In 1863, he was appointed minister of Gould Street, later St. James Square Church in Toronto. Twenty years later, while serving as moderator of the General Assembly, he accepted the principalship of Manitoba College in Winnipeg, forerunner of the University of Winnipeg. King lived in Winnipeg until his death in 1899. He was widely-known and highly regarded as a leading Presbyterian theologian, educator and administrator. His daughter, Helen, married the Reverend Charles William Gordon (Ralph Connor).

Portée et contenu

John M. King was a Presbyterian theologian, educator and administrator. He was born in Scotland in 1829, and moved to Toronto, Canada in 1863 as a home missionary. From 1883 until his death in 1899, King served as the principal of Manitoba College and the minister of St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His papers are arranged into two series, his biography and correspondence. King’s biography consists of the Manitoba College Journal published in March 1899 upon his death, which contains a collection of biographies of different aspects of his life written by several different individuals. The second series consists of correspondence written and received by King from 1883 to 1899, which primarily concerns Manitoba College and his work as principal.
