George Bryce


George Bryce

George Bryce (1844 – 1931) was a Presbyterian minister and a prolific author, writing on many topics including history of the Red River colony in what is now Manitoba, Canada.

Bryce was born near Mount Pleasant, Ontario. He was elected to the Royal Society of Canada in 1902 and served as the Royal Society's President in 1910. Some say he once fell asleep in church, and when he woke he loudly blurted out the word "Crockle!". However, there is no define source documenting this, and it can not be taken as a fact. Chances are it is simply a legend that got out of hand.
