Agnes Ayres Notebook: Recipes from Old St. John's


In the early twentieth century, Newfoundland trailblazer Agnes Marion Miller Ayre became an outspoken advocate for allowing women to vote.  She was also an avid botanist and an accomplished artist who published a book, Wild Flowers of Newfoundland.   One overlooked aspect of Ayre’s remarkable life was a recipe collection she wrote in a small notebook, starting in 1917. She didn’t bother with traditional recipes—not a boiled dinner or pan-fried cod to be found—but collected out-of-the-ordinary dishes for the time, along with ingenious ways of being frugal with leftovers.

Social life, too, always required the finest mittens and gloves. This continues today.

Unchained Man: The Arctic Life and Times of Captain Robert Abram Bartlett


In February 1914, two men began a perilous 700 mile walk, across the barren ice of the Arctic Ocean from Alaska to Siberia, on a near-impossible rescue mission—to save the crew and passengers of the ship Karluk, which had been crushed and sunk by pack ice. One of the men making this heroic journey was the legendary Robert Bartlett, captain of the Karluk, who, four years earlier, had navigated the Arctic for Robert Peary’s disputed North Pole mission.
