Orde Morton publishes second world war story

SJC alum talks about his story post world war two

May 1, 2024 — 

Rhodes Scholar and St John’s College alumni, Orde Morton interviews with Winnipeg Free Press about his Journey through the past.

Growing up after world war two, Orde thought it was time to take his experience from pen to paper in his recent book, “Winnipeg Made Me: Growing Up After World War II”, which is out now from Heartland Associates.

As Orde points out in his interview, “I became aware that many of my contemporaries were starting to die or suffer from dementia, which made me realize if I wanted to do this, I better do it now,” admitted Morton, 83, who grew up in Winnipeg and now lives in Toronto in his retirement.
