Bob Hunter.*
Little indicated in Robert Hunter’s upbringing that he would grow to become one of Canada’s- and eventually the world’s- leading environmentalist campaigners. Born in 1941 near Winnipeg (Canada), Hunter, known to all as Bob, was a rebellious child who rather disliked school, apart from English and Art class. Leading a hippy lifestyle, he travelled extensively before settling down as a journalist, first at the Winnipeg Tribune, and then at the Vancouver Sun. Early on, environmental issues started to become prominent in his articles.
