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 ecomic enterprise-the salt fish industry. Recognition of Newfoundland's status as a crown colony soon to follow and with the granting of responsible gove ment by the mother country in 1855 Newfoundland's political status was among the most advanced in the Empire. However the colony's salt fish trade continued to operate within the network established and maintained by Great Britain and it became increasingly evident that political independence was t to be accompanied by commercial independence. 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.
