Kirk MacLellan was from Halifax, Nova Scotia. He attended Dalhousie University, and developed into one of Nova Scotia’s finest rugby players during his time there. MacLellan was an excellent passer and rusher. He possessed quick moves, enabling him to keep his opponents guessing as to what he would do next. He had a great understanding of the game and managed to turn every opportunity into some sort of advantage for his team.

MacLellan graduated from Dalhousie Medical School in 1909, but remained involved with sports even after he went on to practice medicine. Dr. MacLellan spent much of his free time as a coach at Dalhousie. Kirk MacLellan died on January 25, 1951, but is remembered for his contribution to both sports and his community.
