Name of creator
Thomas McCulloch, Jr. (1809-1865) was born in Pictou, Nova Scotia. He was the third son of Dr. Thomas McCulloch and was educated at Pictou, first in the grammar school under John McKinlay, and then in the Academy, under his father. He went to teach at Dalhousie College in 1843 and taught there until the end of 1844. When the College was revived in 1849, he was appointed principal and had charge of Latin, Greek, Rhetoric, Belle Lettres, and Natural Science. Previous to this time, he had taught a very successful private school in the schoolroom connected with the Poplar Grove church. Poplar Grove congregation elected him as an Elder and he continued to discharge his office while residing in the city. In 1853 he was appointed one of the professors in the Presbyterian Church in the West River Seminary. In this institution he taught Latin, Mathematics and Natural History. He returned to Dalhousie in 1863 and taught Natural Philosophy only. He kept an ornithology collection of nearly all the birds in Nova Scotia as well as mineral and botanical collections, some of which were still at Dalhousie when last noted in the 1970s. He wrote a book on taxidermy. Source: "Presbyterian Witness," Saturday, 11 March 1865, p. 1
