Robertson Davies was one of Canada’s most distinguished authors, the winner of the 1972 Governor General’s award, and an Honourary Doctor of Letters from the University of Oxford.

For nearly two decades (1942-1959), Davies called Peterborough home. As the editor-in-chief of the Peterborough Examiner and a founding member of CHEX-TV, Davies had an immeasurable impact on journalism in the city.

While living in the city he also produced 18 literary works, among them his famous The Salterton Trilogy.

Davies left Peterborough in 1959 when he was appointed the first Master of the University of Toronto’s Massey College.
