Sir Mackenzie Bowell (1823 – 1917) was a strong supporter of education and an active promoter of Hastings County. Bowell was elected to the Belleville Board of Education and served as chairperson of that board from 1856 to 1867. He served as editor and proprietor of The Intelligencer for many years and helped form the Belleville Board of Trade (Chamber of Commerce) in 1865. In his editorials, he stressed education as a key to development and championed the growth of Belleville and Hastings County as a whole. Politically, he distinguished himself as a federal cabinet member, a senator, and Canada’s fifth prime minister (1894 – 1896).
