Bermuda in the 1930s

Bermuda in the 1930s - in the tranquil days before the arrival of the automobile (1948) and construction of the Harrington Sound Road. Extract from one of the paintings by Ethel and Catherine F. Tucker in their  1936 book "Glimpses of Bermuda." One of several books by them.

There are no discount book shops (stores) in Bermuda as there are in USA, Canada, UK, etc. Otherwise, go directly to the author if still living, or any bookstore, NOT this author nor website as neither are in the book-selling business. When prices are shown, they are in Bermuda dollars and were at publication date only. Those without 'Bermuda' in their title may nevertheless have some unique articles on Bermuda. Some are rare in Bermuda, much sought by local collectors and expensive. Be aware that Bermuda has changed so much in so many ways that most travel books of 2003 or earlier may be significantly out of date. 

Listing options

How books are mentionedBy American, British, British-Bermudian, Canadian and other authors. This list focuses solely on books available in Bermuda and about Bermuda, or by Bermudian or Bermuda-based authors, or those writing about Bermuda, and at least available from local bookshops if not from international booksellers as well. 

They can be works of fact or fiction but should have a general appeal about Bermuda from a tourism or economic or socio-economic or historic point of view and be of some appeal to visitors to all who use the World Wide Web. 

Books specifically and solely about any one aspect of Bermuda, that logically have local-only, not world-wide value, may not be included, at this author's discretion. Books relating solely to Bermuda Government legislation or policies or regulations or reviews or statistics are beyond our remit.

Free courtesy hyperlinks (links) to book authors and/or their publishers and/or the main websites of bookstores, which include full details of their histories and operations, will be shown gladly, to give their full details as Bermuda resources, once they return the courtesy with a  free reciprocal link to our main Bermuda Online website at http://www.bermuda-online.org. See our Links and Mentions policy at http://www.bermuda-online.org/links.htm

Sorry, we no longer list/mention books that don't want reciprocal linkage when the book's author and/or publisher has a website and will not instead pay for an advertisement. If the author wishes to be included in this listing and thereby have the book shown on these pages as a Bermuda resource, the author should be prepared to reciprocate by showing this website as a Bermuda resource.  Please note this website is not a free advertising medium for Bermuda books.

An Account of Bermuda, Past and Present. 1883. By John Ogilvy, born Aberdeen, Scotland 1831, died Frimley, Sussex, England 1899. Entered the British Army in 1853 as assistant surgeon, retired before 1885 with the honorary rank of Surgeon General. Listed in the Army List as Principal Medical Officer to Bermuda, 1882. It is believed he spent about five years in Bermuda in that position. One of his direct descendants is Scottish political satirist and comedian Rory Bremner, who discovered a connection to Bermuda in early 2009 through his great-grandfather, the island's deputy surgeon general in Victorian times, via the BBC genealogy program "Who Do You Think You Are?." During his years serving as the British Army's Principal Medical Officer to Bermuda, Bremner's great-grandfather married into one of the island's oldest families and wrote a book chronicling both Bermuda's history and the state of affairs in the late 19th century. Aberdeen-born Ogilvy had qualified at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh in the 1850s, going on to serve as a medical officer in the British Army during the Crimean War. Ogilvy went on to serve in India, then accepted the post of deputy surgeon general in Bermuda in 1881. Ogilvy was by this time a widower, and left his three children behind in England. While in Bermuda, he married a young woman called Emma Gilbert, a descendent of the original Trimingham family who arrived on the island in the mid-1600s. Ogilvy immersed himself in island life and researched its history, eventually completing  this book. He had at least four children with his new Bermudian wife, who was well over 20 years his junior. He moved back to England with his young family after retiring from the British Army, reuniting with his other children and dying in Surrey in 1899.

Ate The Dog Yesterday. Graham Faiella. 2013. The British author was investigating the history of two  Bermuda 19th century wrecks of Southampton, and during his research, frequently had to trawl through the pages of the daily shipping newspaper Lloyd’s List. There,  his attention was constantly diverted to the Casualties columns.  These included numerous reports of shipwrecks, castaways, Cape Horn storms, messages in bottles, and other diverse maritime catastrophes. He began to transcribe the most vivid, interesting and dramatic reports, following up many of them with further research. He eventually arranged these, with annotated further observations, by categories and chapters as a manuscript. The title of the book is the first line of a message in a bottle written by a castaway mariner on a raft in 1873 and picked up on a beach along the Gulf of Mexico coast in 1875. Mr Faiella has written a number of other non-fiction works including ‘Fishing In Bermuda’ and ‘The Bermuda Atlas.’

Bermuda Contrails. By British author Alan Edmund Smith, frequent Bermuda visitor and former Royal Air Force pilot. A World War 2 novel, set in Bermuda. 2012. Fiction based on fact. The Island has inspired his two earlier books: The Bermuda Affair in 2001, The Bermuda Saga in 2006.  The author checked facts at the UK’s National Archive. So-titled because according to the author, "In the summer of 1940 the time of the Battle of Britain, mysterious aircraft condensation trails were repeatedly seen over Bermuda. Contrails had never been seen over Bermuda before and are not easily explained. Every few days a very highflying aircraft, only detectable by its white contrail, would approach St George’s from the direction of Europe, fly the whole length of the Islands, including the Royal Navy Dockyard, then turn back to St George’s and fly out to sea the way it had come. Nobody had an explanation and it was hard to believe that the Germans had an aircraft capable of flying from Europe to Bermuda and back, the distance being so great. The British Government said they were not responsible, so did the Americans. The British Prime Minister Winston Churchill expressed his deep concern and ordered the RAF to investigate, but without success.”

Bermuda Light - The Story of Gibbs's Hill Lighthouse. Michael Dolding. Booklet. Chronicles the building of this major Bermuda landmark since its placement high on a hill in Southampton Parish in 1846. Alexander Gordon was a British (Scottish) engineer who became famous for the use of prefabricated cast-iron for buildings, including his Bermuda Gibb's Hill lighthouse.  His father had invented a system for compressing gas and making it usable in a portable form and Alexander followed him in the gasworks business in London, but also patented apparatus to do with the actual lights of lighthouses. At the age of 67, he died at Sandown, Isle of Wight,  UK, having designed and constructed at least seven cast iron lighthouses for British possessions in the Americas. The first was in 1841, at Morant Point in Jamaica. His second was in 1846 at Gibbs Hill, while the third was placed at Cap Pine in Newfoundland in 1850. In 1852 there were two, one at South Point, Barbados and the other at Grand Turk, in what is now part of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Later ones were at Great Isaac Cay, north of Bimini in the Bahamas archipelago, while another is on Lobos Cay, Bahamas.  George Grove, later knighted, was the engineer constructor of the lighthouses at Jamaica and Bermuda and became very famous for his “Grove’s Dictionary of Music and Musicians”, published 1878—1880.

The edition highlights Bermuda as one of eight UK territories with an extensive reef system, describing the geography, oceanography and biodiversity over the course of several chapters. According to the book, the reef also has an enormous economic value as a tourist attraction, a barrier preventing erosion and as a commercial and recreational fishing area. It estimates the total economic value of the reef as being between $488 million to $1.1 billion per year. It also lists several potential threats to the Islands reefs, including coral bleaching, coral diseases, and global climate change. A section of the book reads: "Great uncertainty exists with respect to the capacity of Bermuda's slow growing corals to cope with rising sea level and ocean acidification and that the reef system will deliver the valuable ecosystem services and essential economic benefits into the next century." Currently available at the Department of Conservation Services Public Library at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, and can be purchased online.

Dispatches from Bermuda. The Civil War Letters of Charles Maxwell Allen, U.S. Consul at Bermuda, 1861–1888. 2008. Edited by Glen N. Wiche. In the summer of 1861, President Abraham Lincoln appointed Charles Maxwell Allen U.S. consul to Bermuda. During the Civil War, Allen’s post became one of vital importance to the United States as this British colony became a center for Confederate blockade-running activities. As the sole representative of Union interests in pro-Confederate Bermuda, Allen found himself involved in the shadowy world of intelligence gathering as he attempted to thwart these blockade-runners. Allen's dispatches shed new light on two important and often overlooked aspects of the war: the Union blockade of southern seaports and the effort to bring vital war supplies through the blockade to the Confederate states.

From Loudoun to Glory. Kevin Grigsby, 2013. Author worked in Bermuda for 12 years until 2011 when he returned to Virginia. Loudoun is his home county. Sheds new light on the role of African American soldiers in the Civil War. Hundreds of young African American men from Loudoun County signed up for duty with the First Colored Infantry in Georgia or the Ninth US Colored Infantry in Louisiana or Mississippi, in 1863. Mr Grigsby used enlistment records, veteran pension records and National Park Science records to research his book. At least 250 African Americans from Loudoun signed up to fight as soldiers and 12 joined as sailors. “Loudoun County was a little different in that it was in the south, but had a faction of Union loyalists,” said Mr Grigsby. “This was probably why a lot of African Americans signed up. There was also a Quaker population in the county who were against slavery.” One Bermudian soldier taking part was Sergeant Robert J Simmons, who served in the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Sgt Simmons fought in the Union assault on the Confederate Fort Wagner in South Carolina. Despite their valiant effort, the 54th suffered heavy casualties and Union forces failed to capture the fort. He died in a South Carolina prison after being taken prisoner during the assault on Fort Wagner.

Henry Gross and his Dowsing Rod. Water Divining in Bermuda. K. Roberts, 1951, New York, Doubleday. 310 pages.

Henry's Dream.  Authored by Jonathan Bell and Roger Crombie, and designed by Linda Weinraub of Fluent. Watlington Waterworks Ltd marked its 80th anniversary in 2012 with the release of  this new book chronicling the company’s history. It describes how Sir Henry Watlington, in the early years of the 20th century, saw the need for a supply of fresh water beyond what was gathered from roofs, as demand grew with the expanding tourism industry. His vision of tapping groundwater sources was finally realized with the founding of the company in 1932, a firm which is today one of Bermuda’s most important commercial enterprises, as it provides a critical part of the Island’s fresh water supply and infrastructure. A fresh water supply on a small and remote island was one of the major challenges for the first settlers in the 17th century and remains a challenge to this day. Rainwater gathered from roofs does not meet all demand, especially during drought conditions, and even groundwater has its limits. Because freshwater is less dense than seawater, it sits on the top of the ocean, forming a lens within the Island’s permeable rock. The main lens in Devonshire contains about 2.2 billion gallons of fresh water. Through a system of tunnels and boreholes the water is extracted and then processed. Since a significant upgrade in 1979, Watlington’s water has been potable.Watlington backs up its groundwater supplies with a desalination operation capable of producing more than one million gallons of fresh water per day from seawater. Reverse osmosis technology used in desalination had progressed and become much more energy-efficient in recent years, he added. Way back in 1911, Sir Henry Watlington saw the importance — and the business opportunity — of meeting rising water demand. In 1924, the House of Assembly rejected his initial proposal to test the groundwater resources. In the summer of 1930, he did it himself. The test results were good, so he ploughed everything he had into building a plant on Parsons Lane that cost 80,000 pounds — a massive sum in those times. Water was processed at the plant and piped to a reservoir at Prospect from where two pipelines transported the water in to the City of Hamilton as far as the Princess Hotel, and also to the Elbow Beach Hotel on the South Shore. Over the years the network of pipelines spread throughout the City of Hamilton and along the South Shore, eventually extending as far as Southampton Parish. In 1994 the company invested in a reverse osmosis plant on the North Shore in Devonshire, taking the water from the seawater wells and removing all impurities to provide drinking quality water. This new technology has been continually updated and upgraded and now the North Shore complex houses six reverse osmosis plants. Watlington also owns Pure Water, 32 Parsons Lane, Devonshire, a bottled water firm that it acquired in 1996. The company sells about 250,000 three- and five-gallon bottles of water per year in reusable containers.

Independence? 2004. By retired lawyer and former United Bermuda Party MP and Cabinet Minister William Cox. 2,000 copies of this epistolatory booklet were printed in which he makes plain that his sympathies lie with maintaining Bermuda's current constitutional position. In a foreword to a collection of seven letters mostly relating to Bermuda's constitutional relationship to the UK, Mr. Cox makes the case that "Bermuda has always benefited from this UK connection and the peace and prosperity we have enjoyed throughout our history and still enjoy is in no small measure due to this connection". He advises that "as with all relationships, if it is to work it must be a two-way street, which means it is necessary for there to be good relations between the Governor and the local Government." Mr. Cox takes successive Governments to task, arguing that while "the UK Government has always gone more than half way to meet the aspirations of the Bermuda Government . . . the Bermuda Government has not displayed the same goodwill in return, especially in the last 30 or so years". He lists a dozen events or factors that have made things difficult for the UK Government to work in harmony with the Bermuda Government over these years, including the 1972 murder of Police Commissioner George Duckett, the 1973 murders of Governor Sir Richard Sharples and his aide-de-camp Captain Hugh Sayers, and the decision of "the Gibbons Government" to hang the perpetrators. He alleges that "the 1983 Swan Government, spearheaded by the Finance Minister David Gibbons, publicly hounded Governor Richard Posnett out of office on trumped-up, spurious charges" and that the Pamela Gordon Government did likewise to Police Commissioner Colin Coxall in 1997. The Progressive Labour Party is not spared: Jennifer Smith is castigated for announcing the holding of a general election in 2002 without telling the Governor, and Premier Alex Scott for using the need for the appointment of a Chief Justice as an excuse to make irresponsible political and personal attacks on the Governor in the media. Mr. Cox warns: "If the Bermuda Government wishes to sever all links with the UK, it must hold a referendum and get a significant majority of Bermudians to support such a move." He suggests that "for members of the Bermuda Government not to observe at least the basic minimum of the courtesies which should be observed in ordinary human relations when dealing with the Governor indicates nothing other than bad breeding and ill manners".

In the Eye of All Trade: Bermuda, Bermudians, and the Maritime Atlantic World, 1680-1783. Dr. Michael Jarvis, 2009. Bermudians used their ships for commerce and travel between the island, the Caribbean, the continental Americas and wider afield and they were manned by men from all sectors of the community, free and slave, the latter until Emancipation in 1834. The importance of those ships, specifically designed for the island, is laid out in great detail in this new history book. University of Rochester historian Michael Jarvis won the 2010 James A. Rawley Prize in Atlantic History for this book. The honor is given to a single recipient each year by the American Historical Association, the country's premier scholarly organization for historians.

In the Hour of Victory. By former Police Commissioner Senator Jonathan Smith.  2011.

He was killed in action in Holland on October 14, 1944. The book is based on his original 300 letters, cards and telegrams and additional research conducted by Mr Smith. Major Smith was one of 12 children, five of whom saw active military duties in two world wars. He and the entire first contingent of soldiers of the BVRC and Bermuda Militia Artillery (BMA), survived a U-boat attack in July 1940 and spent several years in the United Kingdom before finally seeing active combat. Meanwhile, his family struggled to make ends meet during the war from their home in the United States and then in Bermuda. $35. The book is the subject of a film made by Lucinda Spurling.

Kill Me Once…Kill Me Twice: Murder on the Queen's Playground. By Bermuda resident Carol Shuman. 2010. It examines the way the dreadfully and shamefully and deliberately botched investigation was handled after the 17-year-old was raped, repeatedly stabbed and left for dead at Ferry Reach in 1996. The 17 year old Canadian teenager Rebecca Middleton's brutal repeated rape, sodomy,  murder, probably the most sadistic sexual crimes ever committed against a woman and the fact that nobody was convicted for it, has been the focus of international headlines and documentaries over the years. It's also been the focus of several judicial appeals including one from top human rights lawyer Cherie Booth QC. Ms Booth, wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, failed in her attempt to get Bermuda's Chief Justice to quash a prosecutor's decision not to reopen the case in 2007. The Bermuda Government, instead of offering to pay substantial compensation to bereaved parents, merely offered token compensation.

Boeing 314Last of the Flying Clippers. The Boeing 314 Story. M. D. Klass. 2006. With amenities modeled on those of the great luxury liners of the period, the 12 Boeing-314 Clippers operated by Pan Am and British Overseas Airlines Corporation remain the most luxurious aircraft ever to take to the skies. The sumptuous flying boats used to fly through Bermuda in the 1930s and '40s. The book includes sections on the aircraft's extensive use of the Darrell's Island airport in Bermuda. They were the largest aircraft of their type ever built, with a maximum of 74 passengers and 10 crew. They used island airports as intermediate stepping stones for ocean-spanning flights across the Atlantic and Pacific. The aircraft were commissioned from Boeing by Pan Am founder Juan Trippe – also the developer of Bermuda's Castle Harbour Hotel – specifically for trans-oceanic flights. PanAm operated nine of the aircraft while three were purchased by Imperial Airways, forerunner of today's British Airways and also flew through Bermuda en route to New York and other destinations. The aircraft were built between 1938 and 1941. After World War Two, seaplanes became obsolete because new, long-range aircraft such as the Lockheed Constellation could cross the Atlantic and Pacific non-stop

Marine Mollusks of Bermuda: Checklist and Bibliography. 2009. First complete and comprehensive catalogue of Bermuda's marine mollusks, after over a decade of preparation. Published by the Delaware Museum of Natural History. Compiled and catalogued by the late Bermuda-shell collector Russel H. Jensen and Dr. Timothy A. Pearce - the curator of mollusks at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. The detailed book is compiled from more than 750 literature sources and previously unpublished museum records. With 100 species never before reported, 66 only found in Bermuda and 900 mollusk species in total, it is by far the most thorough and complete list of Bermuda's Marine Mollusks printed to date. Russel Jensen, who's work provides the basis for the book, began studying marine Mollusks in Bermuda shortly after World War 2. He spent nearly 40 years scouring the depths around the island for new species and specimens. Along with Bermudian colleagues Jack Lightbourn and Arthur Guest the trio spent decades dredging the deep waters and exploring the inland waters for new specimens. In 1997 Dr. Pearce joined the team to add thousands of additional literature references and to complete the book after Mr. Jensen's death. Available at Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute and Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo for $30.

Our Lady of Labour. Ottiwell Simmons. 2010. A tribute to Dr. Barbara Bertha Ball, MRCS, LRCP, OBE, former Member of Parliament and former Research Officer of the Bermuda Industrial Union (BIU). She died in March 2011 and who in the 1960s and beyond worked tirelessly with the BIU to improve workers' rights. Veteran labour leader and former MP Ottiwell Simmons has chronicled Dr. Ball's work with the BIU in one of the most turbulent periods of Bermuda's history.  In 1942, the young Barbara Ball went to Liverpool University in England on a government scholarship to study medicine.  After graduation she worked for five years in hospitals in Liverpool, Merseyside and Westmoreland. At the age of 30, she returned home to work as a family doctor. She started to gain the notice of the community, in 1960 ,when she spoke at a meeting of an anonymous group called 'The Committee for Universal Adult Suffrage'. They wanted all locals over the age of 21 to have the right to vote. In 1962, when Dr. Ball was first elected Secretary General at a BIU conference, she stuck out like a sore thumb. She was elected partly because some people at the conference thought that because she was white, she might get further with the white establishment they were battling with for things like the right to have union representation, better working conditions and better pay. The Bermudian community was turned upside down by the appointment. Whites seemed to reject her and push her away. Blacks suspected her as being a spy. She was thrown out of the a local medical association not long after she joined the BIU. In those days she had an office on Laffan Street where she treated mainly Portuguese and black patients. Even this was controversial, as white people mainly saw white doctors, and black people mainly saw black doctors. During a labour dispute where non-clinical workers struggled to be allowed union representation, Dr. Ball was suspended from seeing her patients at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. The suspension was eventually lifted, but not until 6,000 people signed a petition on her behalf. One moment in her labour career that particularly stood out was the Belco strike of February 1965. On February 2, BIU members were picketing various gates at Belco. That day there were an estimated 400 people picketing, not just members of the BIU, but also people from other organizations who were sympathetic. A dispute began between the picketers and the Police seeming to hinge on how fast the picketers cleared the gate so that traffic could get onto the property. Later, the strike had sickening repercussions.

By Bermudian businessman, sailor and author Ralph Richardson. originally published in 1992,  revised in 2004, for revision again in 2013. Author hopes it will help bring more tourism business to the Island by yacht. The guide, now commonly referred to as the “Bermuda Boating Bible” has since gone through two editions and sold 4,000 copies. Hundreds of yachts sail into Bermuda every year. The past commodore of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club taught marine navigation courses for more than 20 years and taught Royal Yachting Association courses for four. He says he originally wrote the book out of necessity. The main function of this book, initially, was just so that the author would have a text book for his course because there was no book that taught navigation using Bermuda charts. Sailing has a long and rich history in Bermuda, but only recently has it made some take notice of what a shot in the arm it can be to the Island’s economy. In June 2012, the Newport to Bermuda Race, which finishes here every other year, added an estimated $10 million to the local economy with restaurants, hotels and retailers all reporting a surge in business as 160 boats crossed the finish line. Yacht visitors now allowed to stay 90 days, rather than 21.

The Golden Age of Bermuda postcards. Horst Augustinovic. 2011. $48 from local bookstores. A picture book with a difference, based on his personal collection of picture postcards compiled over 40 years. Captivating and unusual postcard scenes from the late 19th and early 20th century, a compilation of 460 images. The volume begins with an account of the development of the printing process from the first rather plain monochrome postcards to four-colour chromolithographic cards and finally colour film and lithography. A printer himself, Mr Augustinovic determined forensically how the cards were printed and, next to the brief but informative of account of each process, has placed examples drawn from the collection. He also features the key postcard publishers and printers from the large, overseas publishers to smaller, local enterprises, including H G Recht, who owned a souvenir store on Church Street and the Tucker sisters, whose reproductions of their charming watercolours were sold with refreshments at their Little Green Door cafe at Barr's Bay. There are the typical city views of Hamilton waterfront, significant buildings such as Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and the view there from, the interiors and exteriors of hotels, public parks and coastal views. There are also elements of our community that no longer exist: the workings of a Royal Naval dockyard, washerwomen, the fish market at Hamilton wharf, and fruit and vegetable sellers on Front Street. Whale-butchering, vegetable-packing, horse racing and stone quarrying are also the subject of the postcards. Among the exotic are striking flora and native children.

The History of Mary Prince, A West Indian Slave. Related by herself. Edited by Ferguson.173 pages.

The History of Mary Prince (1831). This edition published February 1, 2001 by Penguin Classics. The first narrative of a black woman to be published in Britain. It describes Prince's sufferings as a slave in Bermuda where she was born, Turks Island and Antigua, and her eventual arrival in London with her brutal owner Mr Wood in 1828. Prince escaped from him and sought assistance from the Anti-Slavery Society, where she dictated her remarkable story to Susanna Strickland (later Moodie). A moving and graphic document, The History drew attention to the continuation of slavery in the Caribbean, despite an 1807 Act of Parliament officially ending the slave trade. It inspired two libel actions and ran into three editions in the year of its publication. This powerful rallying cry for emancipation remains an extraordinary testament to Prince's ill-treatment, suffering and survival.

The Prince of Privateers - 2012 book

The Prince of Privateers: Bridger Goodrich and His Family in America, Bermuda and Britain: 1775 - 1825 (Paperback). Nick Hartley, September 1, 2012. Special Amazon review. "As Editor of Bermuda Online I read this book with amazement and admiration for the wealth of detail. Author Nick Hartley (who has also written Monuments Officer) has now plugged many of the gaps or misinterpretations in Bermuda's history as they relate to Bridger Goodrich. He was, as Mr. Hartley says so rightly, not only the "Prince of Privateers" but the first person in Bermuda to launch Bermuda as an island of privateering. It was from Bermuda that the first cedar-built ships were built, initially for trade then commissioned by the British Admiralty as small fast warships and often victorious as legally-sanctioned privateers. A terrific read for all interested in Bermuda and her history with the USA, in particular Virginia as a sister-colony of Bermuda in the early 17th century and before/after Britain's two wars with the USA in both of which tiny Bermuda played a unique part. Definitely an an important, compelling and historically accurate book on the privateering and related aspects of the maritime history of America, Bermuda and Britain in the 1775-1825 period. " Includes 3 pages of illustrations and a useful 6-page index. 328 pages. Publisher: M & M Baldwin. ISBN-10: 0947712518. ISBN-13: 978-0947712518. Available at Amazon.

The Princess Spies. CIA Officer Thomas F. Troy who died in 2008. Article, not book. The operation at the Princess Hotel, near Hamilton, Bermuda, from 1940  was essentially the filter through which all correspondence in the Western hemisphere was inspected. To the average person during World War Two, censorship during times of war was a routine activity. It didn't generate much interest. And that's exactly how British Intelligence authorities wanted it to look because behind the walls of 13 rooms within the hotel, top secret sleuthing, a la James Bond, was taking place. Even the majority of the "examiners" didn't know what went on behind closed doors. Under the leadership of British Intelligence officer William Stephenson, a Canadian some say was one of the real-life inspirations for the literary and movie super-spy James Bond, the co-ordination of the secret "offensive" censorship took place in the 1940s.Troy says espionage experts used technologically-advanced techniques to break into letters and packages in order to produce and plant "forgeries useful in propaganda and blackmail operations." The group of experts could obtain the contents of any package leaving no trace of their tampering. Using innovative techniques for the time they could even extract a letter from an envelope without cutting, steaming or replacing it with a forged replica. Their work proved to be so useful to the combined efforts of the war that Sir William called the censorship initiative "a political weapon of very special importance . . . credit to all concerned." The hotel has many other fascinating connections to the legacy of James Bond and to victory of the Allied Forces in World War two. It's possible, perhaps even likely, the Hamilton Princess Hotel has a copy, given its involvement. If so, it might be available there for inspection.

The Private Life of Georgina Gholson Walker. 1963. Confederate Publishing Company. In 1961, The US Civil War changed her life forever and she began keeping a diary, later this book. She then had a privileged life in Petersburg, Virginia, as a well-connected, happily married Southern hostess. Her husband, Norman Walker, and his brother, John, joined the Confederate Army, and the grim reality of the war came home to her when John was killed at the Battle of Malvern Hill in July 1862. Norman resigned from the army and in November was sent to Bermuda as a Confederate agent. He then sailed on a blockade runner to Nassau and from there went on to England to deliver $2,000,000 in bonds to a Confederate purchasing agent. It was then that she began her journal, which she continued intermittently until 1876. In it she recounted that when her husband returned to Bermuda to take charge of all the affairs of the Confederate States, representing the various Depts, she decided to join him, arriving in March 1863.  The couple stayed in Bermuda until June 1864 when they left for Europe, returning to the island in January 1865. Her diary provides invaluable insights into Bermuda’s part in the war as a centre for Confederate blockade runners.

The Role of Agriculture in Bermuda’s Future. 2010. Not a book but a factual report. Researched and prepared by Aran McKittrick. Summarizes some of the historic and modern challenges facing the agricultural industry, with an aim to better explaining their effect on the use and protection of arable land in Bermuda. Agriculture has played a crucial role in Bermuda’s history forming an essential part of both the Island’s cultural and natural heritage. Despite this, the agricultural industry and agricultural land have been in a steady state of decline over the last 90 years. There is general consensus amongst many stakeholders that both are in a critical state and are fast becoming obsolete. Bermudians themselves have played an active role in the decline of agriculture, whether as agricultural land owners or as consumers. Over time, Bermudians’ diminishing appreciation for the agricultural sector has caused it to become undervalued and neglected. The result is that Bermuda has lost an estimated 87 percent of its agricultural land since the turn of the 20th century. Of the 735 acres of arable land available for agricultural use, only 360 acres are being actively farmed. Although an estimated 40 percent of the population is involved in backyard farming, there are only 18 full time farmers and 33 part-time farmers in the industry today. The challenges the potential collapse of the agricultural industry and the loss of agricultural land pose to Bermuda are far greater than just the loss of commercial farming, however. There are other significant challenges to which most Bermudians are indifferent, the most important of which is food security.

US Navy contractor JA Jones gave a $65 million estimate for cleaning up the mess at what are now Southside and Morgan's Point. Research for the book included interviews with US Department of State officials involved in negotiating that deal, as well as local players who handled the shutdown of the base lands, such as former Premier Sir John Swan and former Cabinet Minister Grant Gibbons.

Virginia Gold. William Thomas. 2010. Historical novel. The author, a retired pastor and US Army chaplain discovered one of his ancestors, John Thomas, then only 17, was a castaway on the Sea Venture of 1609. In June 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London entrepreneurs, the Virginia Company, to establish a satellite English settlement in the Chesapeake region of North America. By December, 104 settlers sailed from London instructed to settle Virginia, find gold, and seek a water route to the Orient. Three years later a  fleet carrying new settlers and provisions to the Jamestown colony was scattered during a storm – and Admiral Sir George Somers’ flagship “Sea Venture” ran aground here, leading to Bermuda’s permanent settlement in 1612. Thomas and other survivors eventually reached Virginia in their two Bermuda-built ships “Deliverance” and “Patience”. This revelation inspired the author to write an historical novel based on this man’s life. “Virginia Gold” is the story of 17-year-old John Thomas, who indentures himself and sets sail from Wales in 1609. Finally John arrived in Jamestown, only to face a series of challenges and dangers that threaten his dreams of land and wealth.

Witches, Wife Beaters and Whores: Common Law and Common Folk in Early America. Elaine Forman Crane. 2011.
