< The Dictionary of Australasian Biography

M‘Culloch, Hon. William, M.L.C., son of Samuel M‘Culloch, J.P., of Chippermore, was born in Wigtonshire, Scotland, and came out to Victoria in 1852. In 1861 Mr. M‘Culloch formed the largest carrying company in the colony, under the title of William M‘Culloch & Co., which in 1868 was converted into a limited company. For the last twenty years Mr. M‘Culloch has devoted his attention to squatting, and has spent large sums in the importation of high-class stock. He was elected to the Legislative Council for the Gippsland Province in 1879, and was re-elected in 1880 and 1890.
