Dale Gilbert Jarvis is a performer, researcher, writer and storyteller living and working in St. John's. He holds a B.Sc. (Honours) in Anthropology from Trent University and an M.A. in Folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland. He currently works for the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador and is President of the Newfoundland Historic Trust. Dale is a regular writer for and contributor to the Downhomer magazine, and his fortnightly exploration of all things paranormal in the province, "Newfoundland Unexplained," is a regular column in The Telegram.
As a storyteller, Dale has performed locally and at international festivals, but is perhaps less well known than his alter ego, the distinguished Reverend Thomas Wyckham Jarvis, Esquire. Since 1997 The Reverend has been the host and guide of the St. John's Haunted Hike, a walking ghost tour through the haunted streets of St. John's. Under his supervision, locals and tourists have been introduced to the vengeful lovers, murdered soldiers, and mysterious fires that await those brave enough to explore the secrets that lie in wait in St. John's darkest corners. Mixing history, humour, and traditional storytelling (and the odd scare here and there), Dale has won over audiences and has been covered by a wide variety of local, national, and international media.
Dale lives in an old row house in downtown St. John's with his partner, Kelly Jones, their four cats, and a relatively helpful ghost.
