William Patrick, clergyman, educator (born 8 September 1852 in Glasgow, Scotland; died 28 September 1911 in Kirkintilloch, Scotland). After studying theology at the Free Church College in Glasgow, he was ordained in 1878. He combined an active involvement in education with his pastoral duties and in 1900 was appointed principal of Winnipeg's Manitoba College (see University of Manitoba), where he taught philosophy and New Testament courses until his untimely death. During his career in Canada, Patrick was a member of the Social Reform Council of Canada, acted on the royal commission to establish an agricultural college for Manitoba, and was also a strong and respected Presbyterian leader in the church union movement.
