Scarce early biography of George McDougall (1821-1876). "In 1880, after his ordination on 6 June and his wedding four days later, Maclean and his wife left for a new Methodist mission near Fort Macleod (Alta). They spent nine years among the Blood Indians, the North-West Mounted Police, and settlers; Maclean’s circuit comprised almost all of what is now southern Alberta. There, he learned the languages of many native groups of the foothills ... In 1886 Maclean had been appointed public school inspector for a territory extending from Medicine Hat to the Rockies and from Fort Macleod to the United States. He resigned this post after joining the Board of Education of the North-West Territories on 2 Dec. 1887. Two years later Maclean was appointed a member of the board of examiners for teachers and after accepting a charge in Moose Jaw (Sask.), he moved there with his young family; they stayed until 1892" (Dictionary of Canadian Biography). OCLC locates only three American holdings [Alaska-Anchorage; Maine at Orono and Washington State].
