Malahat Review co-founders John Peter and Robin Skelton.

The Malahat Review—that child of the ’60s—hits 40 this year and plans are afoot to mark the occasion in a fashion suitable to such an icon of Canadian literature. Editor John Barton, BA ’81, has assembled a series of events culminating in October with a fall edition (#160) dedicated to co-founder Robin Skelton.

The first edition of the magazine appeared in 1967, under the guidance of Skelton and John Peter, the novelist and English professor.

Skelton would serve as the editor of the quarterly until 1983. He was also the first chair of the Department of Writing and instrumental in establishing the library’s Special Collections. Skelton donated a large portion of his art collection to the Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery, an exhibit of which will be shown from Aug. 31 through Nov. 15.
