Robert Hutchison

Robert Hutchison who read at Montreal’s McGill University interrupted his studies to travel and subsequently take up a career in journalism. During his long stint as a foreign correspondent for the Sunday and Daily Telegraph, London, he covered major international events, among them the Arab- Israeli war in 1967 and its aftermath. A series of articles in The Financial Post of Toronto on international financial frauds and corruption won him the National Business Writing Award and three citations for outstanding investigative reporting in Canada in the 1970’s. His long affair with the Himalayas and memories of the Raj has brought Hutchison into fiction writing from the journalist’s daily beat.
