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.
