Mr. R.B. Cunninghame Graham
We regret to announce that, according to a Reuter message from Buenos Aires, Mr. R.B. Cunninghame Graham, who was on a visit to Argentina, died there last evening.
Born in 1852, of ancient Scottish lineage, and educated a Harrow, Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham became the most picturesque Scot of his time. He ranched in Argentina, served in the Uruguayan Army, and travelled widely in other parts of South America. From 1886 to 1892 he was M.P. for North Lanarkshire, being returned as a Liberal, but quickly developing into a Socialist and a follower of William Morris. His life was saved by Burns in the riots in Trafalgar Square in 1887. He published many books of travel of South America. In 1879 he married a Chilean lady, who died in 1906.
