Harry Palmer

Five-time Governor General’s Award winner Hugh MacLennan studied at Dalhousie, Oxford and Princeton Universities before becoming a teacher at Lower Canada College in Montreal. His best-known novel is Two Solitudes (1945), an allegory for the tensions between English and French Canadians. It won him his first Governor General’s Award for Fiction. MacLennan began teaching at McGill University in 1951. He became a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1967, and in 1985, was made a Knight of the National Order of Quebec. MacLennan continued to write and publish work until his death in 1990.
