Adrian Waller - Career

Career

In 1963, Adrian Waller settled in Canada as a journalist, working first for the Chronicle-Herald and Mail-Star in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Soon he moved to Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, to write for such papers as The Hamilton Spectator, the Toronto Telegram, and The Globe and Mail, where he was an entertainment editor. During this period, he gave recitals both "live" and on CBC radio, acted in nearly 60 plays, sang with the Canadian Opera Company, and recorded his LPs of popular opera arias and songs. This work continued through the 1970s and much of the 1980s—while Waller was writing for the Montreal Gazette, Time, and Reader's Digest, where, between 1976 and 1986, he traveled widely as a roving editor. He later received a Master's degree in music history (1974) and a PhD in English from The University of Sussex, U.K..

Waller retired temporarily from magazine journalism in 1988, and, in 1989, he contested a seat in the Robert-Baldwin provincial electoral district in the Montreal region of Quebec for the Equality Party. He finished second behind the Liberal candidate, Sam Elkas, receiving more than 10,000 votes.

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    A black boxer’s career is the perfect metaphor for the career of a black male. Every day is like being in the gym, sparring with impersonal opponents as one faces the rudeness and hostility that a black male must confront in the United States, where he is the object of both fear and fascination.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    John Brown’s career for the last six weeks of his life was meteor-like, flashing through the darkness in which we live. I know of nothing so miraculous in our history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I doubt that I would have taken so many leaps in my own writing or been as clear about my feminist and political commitments if I had not been anointed as early as I was. Some major form of recognition seems to have to mark a woman’s career for her to be able to go out on a limb without having her credentials questioned.
    Ruth Behar (b. 1956)
