Robert Cox

Robert Cox was working as editor of the Buenos Aires Herald, an English daily in Argentina, when he became known for his criticisms of the military dictatorship (1976-1983). Detained and jailed, he was forced to leave Argentina in 1979 due to threats against his family. He moved to Charleston, South Carolina, USA, where he became editor of The Post and Courier.
