Ian M. Malcolm
About the Author:
On leaving the sea, Ian was employed as a clerk for two years, but disliked the job so much that he left to work at G.P.O. Coast Stations, spending a year at Wick Radio and two years at Portishead Radio. In 1956, he resigned to train as a teacher – at Edinburgh University and Moray House – qualifying in 1961. Four years later, he was promoted to Principal Teacher of Modern Studies at Viewforth School in Kirkcaldy, and retired in 1987. He wrote Dundee Memories, published by Birlinn in 2005, and he has also recorded six audio books, covering all his voyages. He has had articles in Sea Breezes, and, in 1997, won first Prize in the Article Category of the Marine Society’s competition.
