Sir Alexander Mackenzie, fur trader, explorer (b at Stornoway, Scot 1764; d near Dunkeld, Scot 12 Mar 1820). Mackenzie's father took him to New York in 1774, and in 1778, because of the Revolutionary War, he was sent to school in Montréal.

His 6400 km trek to the Pacific on behalf of the North West Company revealed much of the geography of western North America.
