Scope and content

Robert Marshall Blount Fulford (b. February 13, 1932) is a self-educated Canadian journalist, editor, and critic and former MacLean Hunter Chair of Communications Ethics in the School of Journalism at Ryerson University (1989-1993). Fulford was born in Ottawa. After graduating from high school in 1949, he began his journalism career as a staff member at the Globe & Mail, a position he held until 1953. Since then, he has written weekly columns for publications such as the Globe & Mail, the Toronto Star, the National Post, and the Financial Times of Canada, and has held editorial positions at a number of publications, including MacLean's and Saturday Night magazines and the Toronto Star. From 1989 to 1992, Fulford was Chair of the Arts Journalism Program at the Banff Centre for the Arts and, from 1989 to 1993, was a media columnist for CBC's Morningside radio program. He is the author of several books, including: Accidental City: The Transformation of Toronto (1995); An Introduction to the Arts in Canada (1977); and This Was Expo (1968). In 1984, Fulford was named an Officer of the Order of Canada and, in 1996, was granted the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Journalism Foundation. He has been granted honorary degrees from a number of institutions, including the University of Toronto, the University of King's College, Halifax, and York University. He delivered the 1999 Massey Lectures, entitled The Triumph of Narrative: Storytelling in the Age of Mass Culture, published that same year as a monograph by Anansi.

Fonds consists of articles authored by Fulford.
