Andrew Graham-Yooll

Andrew Michael Graham-Yooll OBE (1944 - 5 July 2019) was an Argentine journalist, the son of a Scottish father and an English mother. 


He was father to Inés, Luis, Isabel and an adopted son, Matias. He was a prolific writer, and authored about thirty books, written in English and Spanish. "A State of Fear" (Eland, 1986) has become a classic on the years of terror in Argentina.
