Alumni Memory: Barry Wilson, BJ ’74

Recollections, 47 years Later

There are three of them:
1) Having the opportunity to learn from two particularly influential, experienced and wise profs – Wilf Kesterton and Carmen Cumming
2) Getting to know fellow students, some of whom I have kept in touch with during my journalism career including Doug Small
3) The doors it opened to an unexpected and fascinating 44-year journalism career in three provinces and 34 years in the Parliamentary Press Gallery for The Western Producer with world-wide travel and induction into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame as a bonus –  Barry Wilson (BJ ’74)

Alumni Memories are part of Carleton Journalism’s 75th Anniversary.
