Editors

1873 to present day


Remarkably the Thomas Cook timetable had only five Editors in its 140 year history:


Thomas Cook Continental / European Timetable
1873-1914   John Bredall
1914-1939   C. H. Davies
1946-1952   H. V. Francis
1952-1985   John H. Price
1985-2013   Brendan Fox

Thomas Cook Overseas Timetable
1980-2000   Peter Tremlett
2000-2010   Peter Bass

H. V. Francis was the first full-time Editor, the two pre-war Editors also having other jobs in the Company. John Price continued as Managing Editor until retirement in 1988, then Consulting Editor for a time; he passed away in 1998. Brendan Fox joined as Assistant Editor in 1982 before being appoined Editor in 1985 and still freelances for the new publisher.
