NEWSPAPER AND MAGAZINE PUBLICATIONS (48)

* In the early 1980s, certain articles for Kingston’s Whig-Standard Magazine regarding human rights violations in Guatemala were written under the pseudonym Donald McAlpine. Then editor of the magazine, Roger Bainbridge, advised this precautionary measure knowing that my research interests would see me return to Guatemala, even in the midst of civil war. The pseudonym was made redundant after I testified on the armed conflict before a parliamentary committee in Ottawa, at which representatives of Guatemala’s military government were also in attendance.
