Michael F. Flynn

Michael Flynn was born in Bay Roberts and is the third of six children. He received his early education at St. Michael’s primary/elementary school and All Hallows Central High and then attended Memorial University of Newfoundland for five years and graduated with bachelor degrees in education and science. He taught school for thirty-two years at Northern Bay, Brent’s Cove, Brigus, and Bay Roberts and worked part-time in journalism for such newspapers as the Compass, the Evening Telegram, the Independent, and the Bay Roberts quarterly Klondyke Gazette. Michael’s passion for history was born when he was asked to contribute a weekly local history column for the Compass. The research for these articles led to a long-time friendship with David (D. B.) Russell, former editor of the Bay Roberts Guardian, who generously gave him unlimited access to the Guardian files. A tireless volunteer, he has served as chairman of the Bay Roberts Recreation Commission, the town’s tourism committee, the youth justice committee and various sports groups. Michael is the father of three children—Ian, Michelle, and Frankie—and now resides in St. John’s with his spouse, Patricia.
