(BELL, Alexander Graham). EBER, Dorothy Harley. Genius at Work : Images of Alexander Graham Bell. (Halifax) : Nimbus Publishing, (1991). Pp (6),7-192.Illustrated. Sq 8vo, maroon card covers. Prologue by R. Buckminster Fuller . "In 1885, nine years after his invention of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell and his wife, Mabel, paid a weekend visit to Baddeck on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. There they fell in love with the landscape, and soonreturned to build the house and laboratory where Bell would spend his summ ers for the next thirty-seven years. At Baddeck, Bell experimented in many fields, including the development of a successful hydrofoil. Less successful but equally spectacular were his efforts to construct an aircraft with tetrahedral cells in the wings allowing it to become airborne under its own power. Energetic, exuberant, occasionally eccentric, Bell was remembered with affection by friends and neighbors in Baddeck. Dorothy Harley Eber learned of Bell's life from these same neighbors during summer visits to her cottage across the bay from his old home. In the course of many conversations, she recorded theri reminiscences not only of Bell but of a busy household that often included children and grandchildren, Bell's father and stepmother, and famous visitors -- among them Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan Macy, and SIr Wilfred Grenfell. With these interviews and exerpts from family journals, diaries, and letters, Dorothy Eber has woven an engaging, informal account of Bell's life and work on his Cape Breton headland." - from rear.

Winthrop Pickard Bell (b. May 12, 1884, Halifax – d. April 4, 1965, Chester, Nova Scotia) Canadian scholar and historian.

Reprint of 1961 Edition with a new Introduction by L.D. McCann.

"Since its publication in 1961, The "Foreign Protestants" has earned acclaim as a minor classic in the writing of Nova Scotia's history. It investigates, in a thorough and comprehensive manner, the circumstances of some 2,700 Germans and others — the so-called Palatines—who migrated to Nova Scotia in the early 1750s. But it is more than just a reconstitution of the characteristics of these people. The study also examines, for example, colonial settlement schemes, the disputes over Acadian lands, the process of social adjustment in a New World setting, and the long-term political and economic development of the "foreign Protestants." Long out-of print, it is reissued by the Centre for Canadian Studies at Mount Allison University to emphasize the seminal importance of this pioneering study. " - from the jacket.

"This is a study of the settlers who, under British auspices, came to Nova Scotia from the continent of Europe between 1749 and 1752. The plans for the British colonial authorities fro further immigration from that source did not materialize, but the large majority of 'foreign Protestants' who arrived in those yfew years were settled by the government in a township of their own and constituted a distinctive population group. Their descendants have multiplied and many of them have scattered; but Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, still retains many distinctive accents and customs and some characteristic turns of thought and speech." - from the original edition's dj.

"Breathtaking views of sky, sea, and land, the incredible saltwater Bras d'Or Lakes, and easy access to the Cabot Trail draw thousands to Baddeck every year. This magical area of Nova Scotia has enchanted visitors and resident s alike since the early settlements of the Mi'kmaq. From the moment inventor Alexander Graham Bell and his wife, Mabel, built their first home in Baddeck in 1889, the town has been well-known for its role in invention and creativity. With the Bells' arrival, Baddeck was flooded with inventors, scientists, and artists eager to create. Soon enough, the budding village garnered international attention. In February 1909, people flocked to Baddeck Bay to witness the momentous flight of the Silver Dart, which brought aviation to Canada with the country's first powered flight. During this time, Mabel Bell sought out equal rights for women, and established what became the longest-running women's club in Canada." - from the rear cover.
