Herbert Dyson Carter was born in Saint John, February 2, 1910.He was living in Saint Boniface, Manitoba at the time of publication. "In the late 1930s Carter also began a scholarlywork of historical geography which urged the development of Hudson Bay as a mercantile seaport for the Canadian wheat-farming regions, and as a base of naval defense against a possible invasion of North America. Sea of Destiny (1940) was very pro-Russian, drawing a comparison between the USSR's development of its Arctic and Canada's neglect of its own northern territories. It was also anti-German, suggesting that Nazi submarines and battleships might well exploit the Bay as a major point of vulnerability in North American defenses. Reviewers were impressed by this knowledgeable introduction to a neglected feature of North American history and geography - although the isolationist New York Times reviewer dismissed Carter's "alarmist" prophecies that the European war might be carried into the Arctic." - James Doyle. 1.

Gillian Townsend Cell, née Townsend (b. June 5, 1937, Birkenhead, Cheshire, England - d. September 7, 2012, Chapel Hill, North Carolina).

O'Dea 4363.

"Between 1577 and 1660 Newfoundland emerged from relative obscurity to become the centre of a booming and valued industry, the site of one of England's first colonies, and a place of such strategic importance that no English government could afford to ignore it. From the time of its discovery in the late fifteenth century, the fishermen of western Europe made annual fishing voyages to Newioundland. Over a hundred years later, in 1610, the island became the site of England's second permanent colony in North America. The conflict which began at that time between settlers and hshermen has characterized much of the island's history.

This volume examines the two themes of settlement and the fishery. The value of the fishery has been accepted readily enough, but until now no systematic analysis has been made of the industry's growth during its first great period of expansion in the last quarter of the sixteenth century or of its position in the commerce of the ports of western England. Such an analysis is presented in this volume. The author has used customs' records and local port records, summarizing her findings m tabies and graphs. While the figures are incomplete and the conclusions drawn from them necessarily tentative, this book is nevertheless an important step in charting the development of England's first transatlantic trade.

The earliest attempts to colonize the unsympathetic island of Newfoundland are the least known part ot the story ot English settlement in North America. Now, thanks to the use of new documentation, in particular a substantial collection of papers relating to the Newfoundland Company, it can be argued that both the company's colony at Cupid's Cove and the independent settlements which were its offshoots were far more serious and long-lived enterprises than has often been thought. They formed a vital part of the colonial experiences and experiments of the seventeenth century.

The story of English activity in Newfoundland sheds further light on the expansion of England. Both the fishing voyages and the first settlements were originally private ventures. But as the European rivalries in the New World continued and as mercantilist theories made colonies increasingly valuable assets, so Newfoundland's importance as a training ground for sailors and as a strategic element in the control of the north Atlantic became more obvious. By the mid- seventeenth century Newfoundland had ceased to be simply a private concern. Somewhat slowly, somewhat reluctantly, the government moved in." - from the jacket.
