Russell (RA) Bragg
Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia, Canada
Russell A. Bragg was born in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, in 1945 and grew up in Guysborough, Nova Scotia, and in Channel-Port aux Basques, Newfoundland, where his ancestors settled six generations ago. A graduate of Memorial University of Newfoundland, (B.A., B.Ed., and M.A. Linguistics), he has travelled extensively in western, central and eastern (then communist) Europe, and the UK.
Bragg has been formally recognized provincially (NL) and nationally (Canada) with the Marshall McLuhan Award for his development and use of technology in education. His misspent earlier years included half a dozen years as a rock/dance band drummer. Bragg is currently working on Newfy Talk, a glossary of the dialects of Newfoundland, Canada, and on another novel. He presently resides in Lawrencetown, NS.
