Campbell George

Campbell, George, divine, was born in 1719 at Aberdeen, where at the grammar school and Marischal College he was educated. After officiating as parish minister at Banchory Ternan, he was, in 1759, appointed principal of his college. Three years later he published his celebrated Dissertation on Miracles, a reply to Hume's arguments. His next most important work was the Philosophy of Rhetoric, 1776, by which he is now best known. On retiring in 1795 from the offices he filled at Marischal College on account of feeble health, he received a pension from the king of °300, which, however, he did not live to enjoy long. A stroke of palsy carried him off in 1796.
