History Biographical
Lou Seligson was born in Argentina in 1914, to parents who were Latvian immigrant ranchers. To escape antisemitic violence, the family moved to Milwaukee in the United States in 1920. Seligson studied journalism at the University of Wisconsin, and served in the US merchant marine during WWII. He married his first wife Dorothy Wilson in 1945, with whom he had two sons, Eric and Mark. Affected by the hardships of the Depression era, he sympathized and became involved in leftist activities, leading to his blacklisting during the McCarthy era, during which he wrote and drew under pseudonyms such as 'Luis', the name he used for his caricatures of famous people in the socialist Militant Newspaper. Seligson emigrated to Israel in 1962, where he wrote a daily column for Ma'ariv. It was in Israel that he met his second wife, Eunice Chankowsky, then director of the Canadian Hadassah WIZO office in Tel Aviv. The couple married in 1966 and moved for a few years to Geneva, where Seligson edited the country's only English newspaper, the Weekly Tribune, before immigrating to Montreal, Canada in 1970. Seligson's Montreal career included a job writing business profiles for the Montreal Gazette, followed by a column called 'Line Byline' at the Montreal Star. He also wrote for the sports-oriented Sunday Express before taking up employment at the Canadian Jewish News in 1977, where he became well known for his twenty years of articles and accompanying caricature drawings. Over the course of his career, Seligson produced approximately 800 illustrated articles. He died at age 88 in 2002. (Primary source: the Canadian Jewish News, article by Janice Arnold, August 1, 2002.)
