Mark Bourrie

Mark Bourrie is an Ottawa-based historian and journalist. He has published articles in all of Canada’s major newspapers. An award-winning magazine writer, he has also published books on Great Lakes shipwrecks, the Canadian parliament buildings, the history of cannabis, and true crime.

Bourrie became interested in wartime censorship more than a decade ago, when he interviewed 101-year-old Fulgence Charpentier, the last surviving press censor, for a Toronto Star article. That conversation led to PhD studies at the University of Ottawa, where he was supervised by Professor Jeffrey Keshen, who wrote the definitive book on the World War I censorship system.

Bourrie continues to write, research, and teach at Carleton University. In his spare time, he collects trilobites, chasing little fossil bugs across Canada. He lives in Ottawa.
