Decorated photojournalist puts a ‘cap’ on career

Andrew Vaughan, who has captured momentous events for the Canadian Press since 1986, has announced that he will retire from the industry at the end of this year.

Vaughan, 69, has been nominated for seven National Newspaper Awards and won four. Vaughan has covered mass shootings, snowstorms and curling championships, but his priority has always been the person in the story.

Vaughan has two children and one granddaughter. His wife, Elaine McCluskey, is a former journalist with The Canadian Press and an author of six novels with a seventh in the works. While Vaughan is grateful for his career, he could not have done well without his family.
