Professor of Microbiology -- retired after 21 years at Memorial University, Newfoundland, Canada


Background Information

David Edward Bradley's fascination with foreign places comes naturally. Conceived on the Dark Continent in the British Colony of Nigeria, where his father worked as a surveyor, he grew up in England during 1930's. His most vivid childhood memory was seeing the menacing shadow of the Graff Zeppelin floating among the clouds, a portent of things to come. When he was only four years old, his mother joined her husband in Africa. They were stranded there during much of the Second World War, leaving him with his grandmother. In 1943, his parents returned to England and David moved on to Public School near London where the privations of daily life and the VI flying bombs left their mark. Mr. Bradley admits that his early career as a Research Physicist came about through an aptitude for repairing intricate mechanisms and a timely job at a laboratory engaged in the exciting new field of Electron Microscopy. After several years of ground-breaking research, he gained his MSc and PhD degrees in Microbiology at the University of Edinburgh, satisfying his wanderlust by participating in scientific expeditions and conferences around the globe. In 1974, Dr. Bradley immigrated to Canada where he worked at Memorial University of Newfoundland. There, at the easternmost edge of North America where the passage of years is marked by the southward migration of icebergs from Greenland, he continued his research in Microbiology. He has published over 175 scientific articles and papers. After retiring in 1995, D. Edward Bradley devotes his time to writing fiction at his home in Kingston, Ontario. His first novel, Leeward, was published in November, 2001 by The Invisible College Press, Arlington, Virginia. His second, Harry's War, was released in November 2003 by Wexford College Press, Los Angeles.
