George BrownGeorge Brown (1819-1880)

Born at Alloa, Scotland, in 1819 this Father of Confederation was educated in Edinburgh, and settled in Toronto in 1843. Here, in the following year he began the Globe, which soon became a leading reform newspaper. Entering parliament in 1851, Brown rose to head a reorganized "Clear Grit" Liberal party. In 1864, he was instrumental in shaping a coalition government to seek confederation. Prominent at the resulting Charlottetown and Québec conferences, he left the government in 1865, but remained a power in his party and on the Globe. He built his house in 1874-77 and died here in 1880.
