Alexander Mackenzie, PC , a building contractor and writer, was the second Prime Minister of Canada from November 7, 1873 to October 9, 1878. He was also the first Prime Minister for the Liberal Party of Canada.

He was born in Logierait, Perth and Kinross, Scotland to Alexander Mackenzie, Sr. and Mary Stewart Fleming. He was the third of four children. Mackenzie immigrated to Canada in 1842 after completing an education in public schools at Perth, Moulin, and Dunkeld, Scotland. Shortly thereafter, he converted from Presbyterianism to Baptist beliefs. Mackenzie's faith was to link him to the increasingly influential Temperance cause, particularly strong in Ontario, where he lived, a constituency of which he was to represent in the Parliament of Canada.
