Ian Macpherson (novelist)
Ian Macpherson (1905–1944) was a Scottish writer from Leslie Place, Forres, Moray, Scotland. He graduated from Aberdeen University in 1928 with a first-class honours degree in English. His first novel, Shepherds Calendar, was published in 1931. The book tells of a young man's growth to maturity in a farming community dominated by hard toil and the influence of the seasons.
Wild Harbour tells of the world destroyed by a future war, forebodings of which were already discernible in Europe. Macpherson died in a motorcycle accident in 1944.
