DAVID McCALDEN was born in 1951 into a working-class family in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He was educated at the University of London, Goldsmiths' College and graduated with a Certificate in Education (Sociology) in 1974. From 1972 until 1977 he was involved with various movements for the preservation of British national integrity, traditions, wildlife and environment. In 1978 he moved to California and established the Institute for Historical Review, and became its Director and Editor-in-Chief. Since 1981 he was a freelance writer, interesting himself in modern history, politics, ecology, and Atheism. His earlier book Nuremberg & Other War Crimes Trials (1978) was written under the publisher's house nom de plume "Richard Harwood".

David McCalden died in the early 1990s from complications due to pneumonia. He is survived by a wife and one child, I am told. His attorney, Andrew Allen, who handled the estate, has given me permission to offer this literary work to the public for non-profit purposes. David would have wanted it that way. He was a unique personality and one of the truly great free-thinkers of our time.
