Rev. Scrimger was the first Canadian to teach at The Presbyterian College and the first Canadian to be Principal. He began teaching in 1874 as a Professor in Exegesis. He would be appointed Principal in 1904 and would also be named Professor of Systematic Theology taking over for MacVicar. He was responsible for entering the College into an agreement in 1912 with McGill University and the other theological Colleges affiliated with McGill. It was aimed at co-operation between the colleges, an early attempt at what was later done in 1969. He also served as the College’s librarian prior to being Principal.
