A letter from Farley Mowat to the University of Manitoba

May 7, 2014 — 

Canadian author Farley Mowat has died at the age of 92, five days before of his 93rd birthday, news outlets report.

Here is a letter he wrote, previously unpublished and unique to the University of Manitoba.

“In 1997, when I was editor of the Alumni Journal, now On Manitoba, I received this letter,” says Chris Rutkowski, a communications officer at the U of M. “We didn’t print it, but I had wanted to.”
