The Rest is History

One of the things I learned early on in university (probably not as early as I should have, but anyway) was that I liked writing nonfiction – finding an interesting topic, asking a question, researching the story, and putting it together into an article. A lot of my writing over the years has therefore been of the historical variety. In fact, my first published pieces were for the original print version of The Independent.

A lot of pieces are obscure, or hard to find, or forgotten (even by me), and I’ve had fun searching some of them out and revisiting those articles I wrote years ago. I’ve started to post some of them in the “History” section of this website. I’m going to try to find some of those old Indy pieces too.

For those who are especially interested (hi, Dad!) I’ve also posted the major paper I completed for my MA in history: “Clearing the Slums“.

Unless you’re super interested in early-to-mid twentieth century public housing policy or the urban history of St. John’s, it’s not exactly a page turner. But feel free to get in touch with any questions or comments! I always enjoy chatting about the past. Especially Newfoundland’s.
