Biography / Administrative history
Carl Weiselberger, born in Vienna, Austria, became a journalist after graduating from the University of Vienna. He left Austria for London, England, in 1939 to escape from the National Socialists. Following the outbreak of war he was interned in England and deported to Canada, where he remained in internment camps in northern Quebec. Following his release in 1943, he took a position as translator with the Censorship Branch of the Department of National Defence. In 1946 he joined the Ottawa Citizen, where he became especially well-known for his articles on art and theatre.
