Land surveyor.

Born at Napanee, Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1837. He graduated from McGill University as a civil engineer in 1861. In 1871 Doupe came west, travelling by stage to St. Paul and northwards by steamer from Georgetown to Upper Fort Garry. He joined the Manitoba and North-West Territories Survey which had been interrupted by the 1869 Métis uprising. He remained with the government and the railways for over twenty years and carried out many important surveys. In 1893 he went into private practice. Married with three children, he was a founding member of the Manitoba Historical Society, in 1879. Doupe died at his Winnipeg home, 169 Edmonton Street, on 31 January 1910.
