1779, May 21839, Apr 11
a Scottish novelist, entrepreneur, and political and social commentator. Because he was the first novelist to deal with issues of the Industrial Revolution, he has been called the first political novelist in the English language. He was the founder of the city of Guelph in Canada. Galt's novels are best known for their depiction of Scottish rural life, tinged with ironic humour.
