Jock Carroll

Jock Carroll, born in Toronto, (March 5, 1919 - August 5, 1995), worked as a writer, journalist and photographer for the Canadian media, including the Toronto Telegram.

A former war correspondent and RCAF pilot, Carroll had also published six books, some about the magazine and publishing business. In 1952, Carroll was given an assignment to profile Marilyn Monroe on the set of the film "Niagara." The feature appeared in the Canadian "Weekend Magazine" that year, but the candid photos he took of Monroe would appear later in 1996 in the book "Falling For Marilyn: The Lost Niagara Collection."

His book, "The Death of the Toronto Telegram," (1971), offers many anecdotes about the Canadian newspaper business from the 1940s to 1970. Included is an interview with Marilyn Monroe in 1952, writer Arthur Hailey (1966), Elvis Presley (1956), and Toronto millionaire businessman "Honest" Ed Mirvish (1970).

Carroll was a member of the Toronto Men's Press Club, the Author's League of America, the Professional Photographer's Association of Canada, the Ontario Sports Writers Association, and was president of the Canadian War Correspondents Association.

Before his death, Carroll encountered some legal trouble over copyright and ownership issues, regarding his book of old photographs of Glenn Gould, ("," 1994) which he had snapped in 1956 as part of a magazine article. The Ontario Court of Appeal found in Carroll's favour in the decision of "Gould Estate v. Stoddart Publishing Co. Ltd.".
