Biographical history

Horace Graham Wyatt was born in Chichester, Sussex, England, in 1878. He was educated at St. John's College, Oxford and taught in England for two years. From 1905 to 1924 he served as an educator in India. He left India in 1924 and moved to California where he worked as both student and lecturer at Stanford and later taught at other west coast universities. In 1935 he retired to Victoria. There he was active in the John Howard Society, serving for a time as their secretary. He was also a member of the Victoria Branch of the United Nations Association and the Canadian Institute for International Affairs. His published works include Crime in Canada and the War, and The Tale of the Bounty. He has also written several tracts which explore the traditional religions (particularly orthodox Christianity) and the theoretical foundations of modern philosophy. Wyatt died on July 31, 1971.
