Biography of Terry Waite CBE
Terry Waite CBE, born in 1939 in Styal, Cheshire is a British humanitarian and author. He is best known for his work as a hostage negotiator whilst working as Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury on Anglican Communion Affairs.
In the early 1980's he successfully negotiated the release of several hostages from Iran and in 1983 he negotiated with Colonel Ghadafi for the release of British hostages held in Libya and again was successful. In January 1987 while negotiating for the release of Western hostages in Lebanon he himself was taken captive and remained in captivity for 1,763 days, the first four years of which were spent in total solitary confinement.
On his release in November 1991 he turned his attention to writing and lecturing as well as spending time with numerous charities that he is involved with, including Y-Care International, The Butler Trust, Emmaus UK, Hostage UK and the Freeplay Foundation. He has written three books: Taken on Trust (1992), Footfalls in Memory (1995), Travels with a Primate (2000) and many articles for various publications and journals.
