Biographical Notes
Biographical Annotation i. The travel writer Andrew Wilson was born in Bombay, India in 1831 to the missionary and orientalist John Wilson and his wife Margaret Bayne. He attended University at Edinburgh, and later studied (for his MA) at Tubingen, in Germany. Living for a time in Florence, he ultimately returned to India to begin a journalistic career with the Bombay Times. His writing reflected his long-standing interest in the pedagogical potential of travel: he believed that travel had the potential to radically alter one's worldview. Wilson retired to Britain in the late 1870s, living out his remaining days in Ullswater.
