ABOUT THE TOM OLSEN LECTURE
Tom Olsen had a long career in journalism both in London and the provinces. He worked as reporter, leader-writer, editor and author. He had a great love of writing whether under his own name or the nom de plume John Morrell. He loved wine too and spent the last fifteen years of his life as the wine correspondent of the Sunday Telegraph.
Tom was an enthusiast for the Church of St Bride which during his time shared Fleet Street with the nation’s press. When Tom died in 1987 it was felt that his memory should be perpetuated through a trust that bears his name. The aim of the Trust is to further the work of St Bride’s.
