Henry Vollam Morton (1892-1979) International Journalist and Travel Writer born in Ashton-under-Lyne. Morton's work captured the spirit of England and other great countries from the 1920's to the 1960's and provided a great literary contribution throughout those five decades. He reported the discovery of the Tutankhamun tomb in 1923 and the historic meeting between Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt in 1941. He has travelled 'around like a magpie, picking up bright things that pleased him' and recorded them for our pleasure.
