Robert Gallacher

Robert Gallacher, who has graduate degrees in religious studies and history, has enjoyed a varied career in education, business and media. He began the Department of Religious Studies at Capilano University (then Capilano College), concentrating on comparative religions.

He also wrote a newspaper column on today's religion and hosted a radio show in Vancouver about current religious beliefs.

Deciding to change streams, he formed his own company, which he managed for some years. Returning to teaching, he has offered lectures aboard cruise ships for the past six years in history and has sailed to almost every continent.

Gallacher has been involved in such organizations as the Council of Christian and Jews, and he was a co-founder of the Holocaust Symposium, which is held annually for high school students at the University of British Columbia.
