Burt Bacharach, composer and music producer
Attended McGill University in Canada, where he studied music and wrote his first song, “The Night Plane to Heaven.”
Fictional Character Who Studied Abroad #4:
Dr. James Wilson, House
I haven’t figured out whether Wilson is supposed to be a Canadian who came to the US for his graduate study or an American who went to Canada for his undergraduate degree, but since he has degrees from McGill, Columbia and Penn, he had to have been studying outside his native country at some point.
