1829 - 1912

Born at Three Rivers, Brudenell Point, Macdonald, a merchant and shipbuilder, served as a member of the Legislative Assembly (1853-58) and of the Legislative Council (1867-72). He attended the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences of 1864 and on the latter occasion compiled notes which provide one of the few original sources of information on that conference. After the entrance of the Island into Confederation in 1873 he became provincial Post Master General and later Lieutenant-Governor for five years before being called to the Senate in 1891. He died at Ottawa.

Négociant et armateur né à Brudenell, (l'ancien Trois-Rivières), Macdonald fut membre de l'Assemblée législative (1853-1858) et du Conseil législatif ( 1867-1872). En 1864, il assista à la Conférence de Charlottetown. Il assista également à celle de Québec et laissa des notes qui constituent l'une des seules sources originales sur ces déliberations. Dès l'entrée de l'Ile dans la Confederation (1873), il fut ministre provincial des Postes et, plus tard, lieutenant-gouverneur. Il accéda au Sénat en 1891 et mourut à Ottawa.
