Book Description
Best known as "Uncle Mose," Ted Russell (1904-1977) was also a teacher, a magistrate, a civil servant and even a politician. This biography, set against the backdrop of major events in Newfoundland and Labrador during the twentieth century, is a testament to a man whose dedication, integrity and sense of humour make one of our province's most beloved native sons. Written by his daughter, this book illuminates the private as well as the public man.

About the Author
Elizabeth Miller was born in St John’s in 1939, the second of five children of Ted and Dora Russell. She spent her entire career as an educator, first as a high school teacher and principal (at Joe Batt’s Arm), followed by over thirty years on faculty with the English Department at Memorial University. During the 1970s and 1980s, Elizabeth edited numerous collections of the stories of Uncle Mose and published two full-length biographies (on Ted Russell and Norman Duncan).

In the early 1990s her scholarly pursuits took an unusual turn. Elizabeth is now internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s foremost Dracula scholars, having published six books on the subject along with dozens of articles. Her expertise is sought for TV documentaries and magazine articles around the world. She has been the recipient of several accolades: Graduate Studies Award for Thesis Excellence (1988); President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching (1991); Baroness of the House of Dracula (Romania, 1995); Daughter of Aref (Romania, 2000); and Professor Emerita, Memorial University (2005).

Elizabeth has one son (Dennis) and since her retirement in 2002 has resided in Toronto. She is currently writing her memoirs, tentatively entitled From Pigeon Inlet to Transylvania.
