Shannon Ryan was bo and received his early education in Riverhead, Harbor Grace. He has studied at Memorial University of Newfoundland (BA (Ed.), BA, MA), the University of London (Ph.D.) and the University of Oslo. He worked for some time as a schoolteacher in Canada and is presently Associate professor of History at Memorial University. His areas of research and publication are Newfoundland fisheries history and Newfoundland oral history. By 1814 the community of Newfoundland had become the beneficiary of a major British economic enterprise-the salt fish industry.

Newfoundland's history during the period from 1814 to 1914 is an important part of the history of North Atlantic Commerce in general and British Commerce in particular. It is also the story of the colony's efforts to grow politically and culturally in the context of the commercial realities of its saltfish trade.… (more)
