      From Patricia also Pat, P.M May Pierce nee Culp , born 1943, was raised on a farm on Culp Road, Vineland, Ontario in the heart of Niagara s fruit lands The family is descended from United Empire Loyalists, and from a young age she felt history all around her Right next door was grandpa Joe Ed Culp, an amateur historian, who investigated local history He also compiled a number of very detailed family trees, writing innumerable letters, while sitting at the kitchen table diligently bashing away on his antique typewriter.With a knack for finding arrowheads in newly ploughed fields and orchards, it was easy for her to imagine the local native people hunting along the Twenty River and camping in nearby picturesque Jordan Hollow On the family farm remains the huge old barn, built high for an earlier era wheat with a solid structure of massive tree trunks, some with the bark still on them Parts of the barn are now listed as historic artifacts.A graduate of The University of Waterloo, she joined the historic Ryerson Press in Toronto, Ontario Ryerson was an old style publishing house with presses and practices ranging from the Dickensian to the up to date Older managers had been in the war together and avoided firing another veteran It was not unheard of for a member of staff to retire after 60 years The eccentricities of the authors a poet with a bottle of wine might wander in before lunch for a relaxed chat were often rivaled by those of the staff The under employed Advertising secretary might spend the day drawing up detailed astrological charts for colleagues followed by extensive discussion, that is, when she wan t studying electronic music Yet in editorial meetings ideas for fine new books blossomed They were the first to publish Alice Munro in book form It was all fascinating to a novice Under one roof a successful book idea would appear and progress through all stages to printing, coming to rest in the attached warehouse There, among the sky high piles of books, the warehouse manager was constructing a sailboat She was hooked on book publishing This was wonderful It was fun But, of course, it had to end.At this time Ryerson was taken over by super efficient McGraw Hill The media and the public were enraged The oldest publishing company in Canada could not be protected from a US takeover There was a change in the law as a result It was time for a change In 1973 came the first of 35 years in London, England, editing and writing books With history and culture so densely to hand, and with the Continent so near, she traveled on one adventure by motorcycle to Morocco don t do it She wrote and writes mainly on historical topics and the lives of the extraordinary people who make history Her last in house position in central London was as managing editor of a publishing house.Patricia Pierce has returned to the Niagara Peninsula, writing and painting portraits and still looking for arrowheads.
