Cyril W. Greenham

Cyril W. Greenham was born and grew up in Twillingate, Newfoundland. His father, Wilbur Greenham, and grandfather, Andrew (Chum) Greenham, were both sea captains, and Cyril was initiated to the sea, and stories of it, at a very young age. In the early 1950s, Wilbur Greenham owned a little schooner, and six-year-old Cyril was often rocked to sleep on board. Captain Andrew (Chum) Greenham and his son Captain Wilbur Greenham were storytellers par excellence, and very popular around the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Cyril had a very close relationship with his father, and whenever they were together they often indulged in yarning about the “old times.” Cyril soaked it all up like a sponge. The author wanted to become a sea captain like his dad, but after completing high school in 1963 he attended Memorial University of Newfoundland, where he received a BA (Ed) and a BA (French). He spent most of his life as a language teacher throughout Newfoundland, and he currently works part-time as an ESL in Toronto, Ontario. He devotes the rest of his time to keeping alive Newfoundland’s unique way of life and the memory of a father dearly loved.
