W.M. Macpherson was born in Montreal, the son of Sir David L. Macpherson and Elizabeth Molson, and was educated in England. After entering business in England, he returned to Canada in 1870. In 1872, he formed the Dominion Steamship Company and subsequently became director of a number of other companies. He was associated with Molson's Bank for many years and in 1897 became president. Macpherson was also a Harbour Commissioner for the Port of Quebec and an active supporter of the campaign to rehabilitate the Plains of Abraham. See Canadian Who's Who, 1910, p. 146.
