Historia biográfica

Robert Fulford, journalist, editor, and author, was born in Ottawa on 13 February 1932 and educated at Malvern Collegiate. His first job was as a sports reporter with the Globe and Mail. He soon turned to literature and the arts which have remained his forte. Fulford edited various magazines for Maclean-Hunter in 1953-1955, returned to the Globe in 1956-1957, and was editor of Maclean's Magazine from 1962 to 1964. From 1958 to 1962 and again from 1964 to 1968 he was a literary columnist for the Toronto Daily Star. He became editor of Saturday Night magazine in 1968 and stayed there until his resignation in 1987. While there he reviewed movies under the pseudonym of “Marshall Delaney”. He then became columnist and contributing editor to the Financial Times until 1992 when he joined the Globe and Mail as weekly arts columnist.

He has been a contributing editor of both Toronto Life and Canadian Art. Fulford began writing a column for the National Post in 2000. He has published several books. In addition to his writing, he has been active as a radio personality and has hosted an interview program, "Realities" on TV Ontario. He served as chair of the Maclean-Hunter program in communications ethics, Ryerson University, 1989-1993. He also sits on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. He has won numerous awards and been awarded several honorary degrees. Fulford published his memoir Best Seat in the House in 1988.
