About the Author

Jim Barber managed to find time to write this book while working as the Sports and Arts Editor for The Barrie Advance, and as the Editor for the Collingwood-Wasaga Beach Connection, two community newspapers in Central Ontario. Jim is a recipient of the Ontario Community Newspaper Association Award for Sportswriting and a Canadian Community Newspaper Award for editorial writing. Educated at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, and Toronto's Centennial College, he has had a passion (obsession?) for hockey and hockey history most of his adult life. The books of Scott Young and Brian McFarlane inspired him as a youth, as do the works of Andrew Podnieks, Douglas Hunter, and Bruce Dowbiggin today. A member of the Society for International Hockey Research, Jim lives in a very old house, in a very small village called Nottawa, a few kilometers from the shores of Georgian Bay, near Collingwood, Ontario.
