A. Carlyle Dunbar, a longtime business journalist in Canada, died earlier this month at the age of 89.
Dunbar was an assistant editor of New Liberty magazine, assistant financial editor of the Toronto Star, and for 30 years held senior editorial positions at the Financial Post.
He subsequently freelanced for Investor’s Digest of Canada, Investment Executive, and the Globe and Mail Report on Business.
An obituary states, “Carlyle had a deep love of journalism and spent most of his life surrounded by piles of newspapers and periodicals. He had a capacious memory for an amazingly eclectic range of information on all manner of topics acquired from wide reading; and he had an old journalist’s knack for striking up conversations with strangers encountered in the course of daily errands, which he would then report with evident pleasure.”
