Canadian citizen, Frederick Mulder moved to the UK in 1968 to finish his doctoral studies in Philosophy at Oxford. Although his intention was to return to Canada to teach, he instead stayed on in London and started a business dealing in European printmaking 1470 to 1970. The business went well, but, explained Fred, "while I loved the business, I was also aware that the world had many injustices, and I developed the habit of tithing to projects that addressed those issues." Fred has used much of his income as an art dealer for the good of others, giving to charity in a range of unusual ways and persuading other rich individuals to give their money to charity and to enjoy it.
