The Judith Robinson fonds is one of the archival collections at McMaster University Library in Hamilton, Ontario. Judith Robinson (1897-1961) was one of Canada’s most read newspaper columnists in the mid-20th century. Her career spanned three decades and two major newspapers (The Globe and Mail and The Telegram). As author of “the most polished newspaper prose in North America, with an acid fillip in every phrase,” she commented on all the key stories of her day… with fearless criticism of those in power.
