Neil Munro

a.k.a. Hugh Foulis *

Author Code: ENMX

Born: Jun. 3, 1863 - Inverary, Scotland

Died: Dec. 22, 1930 - Craigendorn, Scotland

After an education at local schools which did not include university, Munro took a job as a law office clerk. In 1881, he moved to Glasgow and worked as a cashier before turning to journalism. After working for a series of newspapers, he was made chief reporter at the Glasgow Evening News in 1886. In 1896, he published his first book, The Lost Pibroch and Other Sheiling Stories, which had appeared as a serialization in Blackwood's Magazine. His first novel, John Splendid, appeared in 1898. He continued to write columns for the newspaper, but concentrated more of his time to his novels. One of his best works, Doom Castle, was published in 1901 and deals with the Jacobite Rising of 1745. He turned his hand to comedy with the introduction of Para Handy, a humorous mariner who would form the main character of a number of Munro's works over the ensuing years and which made his name with the public. In 1908, he was awarded an honorary LLD from the University of Glasgow. During the First World War, he visited the front as a war correspondent and in 1918 was made editor of the News. After this, his literary output declined until his retirement in 1927 due to ill health. His other works include Gilian the Dreamer (1899), The Shoes of Fortune (1901), Children of Tempest (1903), The Vital Spark (1906), The Clyde, River and Firth (1907), Fancy Farm (1910), Ayrshire Idylls (1912), The New Road (1914), Jaunty Jock and Other Stories (1918) and History of the Royal Bank of Scotland (1928).
