MY LIFE AS A LECTURER ON P.E.I. HERITAGE

The following blog posts on Island history and heritage all started life as lectures illustrated with colour slides and later, PowerPoint presentations. I gave my talk – only to have it dissolve into a mist when everybody went home. The reason I chose to take on this blog project was to rescue all that knowledge and those insights from the mist so that, for a while, they would live again. All of the following posts derive from lectures I have given over the past 45 years.
