Author Bio for Adam, Graeme Mercer

Author Image

Graeme Mercer Adam (1839-1912) was a Scottish born Canadian editor and publisher. Born in Loanhead, Scotland, he came to Canada in 1858 to work for the Canadian publishing house Cunningham Geikie. Two years later he assumed control of the company which eventually became Adam, Stevenson and Company. The company published several magazines including the British American Magazine, The Canada Bookseller and The Canadian Monthly and National Review. He left Canada in 1892 apparently frustrated by the state of literary life in Canada but also attracted to the more lucrative industry in New York which was where he died in 1912. Not well known as an author, he helped nurture Canadian literature in the latter part of the 19th century through his role as editor and publisher. (The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
