About the author:
    Robert Sellar was newspaper editor and author of several books. Born on 1 Aug. 1841 in Glasgow, Scotland, he was the ninth of the ten children of Alexander Sellar, a notary, and Isabella Grant. He was married on 1 July 1886 to Mary Watson in Huntingdon, Quebec. They had four sons and a daughter. Robert Sellers died in Huntingdon on 29 Nov. 1919. Robert Sellar’s youth was beset by poverty and hardship endured out of duty to his family. He left school at age 12 to help support his mother, younger brother, and two sisters after his elder brother Thomas emigrated to Upper Canada in 1853; his father followed Thomas the next year. In 1863 he was recruited to found a newspaper for supporters of George Brown, an mla and editor of the Globe, in the backwoods community of Huntingdon, Lower Canada [Quebec].
