Dates of existence



Hubert Evans was a writer and poet as well as a newspaper reporter and salmon hatchery superintendent. He was born in Galt, Ontario and served in World War I before moving to British Columbia. He married Ann (Anna) Emily Winter in 1920 and, in 1926, decided to take up freelance writing as a full time occupation. From the 1930s through the 1950s, Evans published many adventure and wilderness stories for young readers. He expanded his readership in 1954 with the publication of Mist on the River. Canadian audiences were also able to listen to his radio plays and adaptations of his stories which were broadcast by the CBC. He was the recipient of an honourary degree from Simon Fraser University in 1984.
