Geoffrey Moorhouse

Geoffrey Moorhouse (1931-2009) was born in Bolton, Lancashire and was educated at Bury grammar school. He did his national service in the Royal Navy before joining the Bolton Evening News. After two years, and aged 23, he left for New Zealand. He not only worked on newspapers there, but also met his first wife, Jan. He brought her back to England in 1957 and for a few months worked in London for the News Chronicle, by then in decline. In 1958 he moved to the Manchester Guardian.

At the Guardian, he became chief features writer in 1963, a post he held until he quit in 1970 for full-time book writing on a variety of themes.
