Newfoundland Portfolio - A History in Portraits by J.M. Sullivan represents professional "firsts," trailblazing artists, dedicated activists, innovative entrepreneurs - people who made their mark through their work or their calling. It includes long-loved eccentrics and exceptional young adults who met with tragedy, as well as those who happened on momentous events and those who were swept along by them. Together they touch on a myriad of incidents and adventures significant to the politics, industry and culture of this province, our country and the world, and leave the gift and legacy of their work and ideals.
