Timothy Warren Anglin

Birth: Aug. 31, 1822
Death: May 3, 1896

Canadian politician and Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons. Anglin emigrated from his home in Cork, Ireland in 1848, as one of thousands who were fleeing the Irish potato famine. He settled in New Brunswick where he found opportunity as a newspaper editor, founding the Freeman, a publication that he used to espouse unity among Canada's Orangeman and Catholics. Anglin evenutally found himself embroiled in Canadian politics, first elected to the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick in 1861 where he waged battle against the tide of Confederation, and later, after New Brunswick signed on to become a Canadian province in 1867, as a member of the Liberal party in the Canadian House of Commons. In 1874, he was appointed to the position of Speaker of the House. During his tenure, he courted controversy, disregarding the duty of his post to be non-partisan and instead speaking out against the opposition. Worse still, he continued to act as editor to his newspaper, continually editorializing about the state of Canadian affairs, all the while accepting government printing contracts to publish the paper. For this he was formally accused of violating the Independence of Parliament Act and was ultimately muzzled by his opponents. Despite the controversy, however, he was eventually re-nominated to his post in the next election. When the Liberals were finally defeated in 1878, Anglin resigned his position, and over the next several years, began to phase himself out of political office. He moved to Toronto where he became editor of the Toronto Tribune.
