Name of creator
James Bannerman is a pseudonym of John Charles Kirkpatrick McNaught, author, critic, and broadcaster. He was born on 23 March 1902 in Toronto, Ontario, and educated at Upper Canada College and the University of Toronto. He also used the following pseudonyms: George Austen, Mark Carter, Peter Davidson, Robert Elliott, Pierre Lousanne, and Lajos Dohanyi Lajos.
Bannerman is probably best known for his introduction to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday radio broadcasts from the 1950s to 1970. He wrote many broadcast scripts and also contributed articles to Canadian Home Journal, Maclean's, Mademoiselle, Mayfair and other magazines.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of broadcast scripts, typescripts of several short stories and articles, and a small amount of unlisted correspondence.
Immediate source of acquisition
Fonds was acquired from Bannerman's widow, Emily, via Robert Weaver of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, in 1971.
