NH Union Leader: W. Jeffrey Bolster grew up with an affinity for the sea. He has spent his life fishing, sailing and seeing firsthand the changes taking place in the North Atlantic.

So it is no wonder that his professional life would follow this passion. For 23 years, Bolster has been teaching early American history at the University of New Hampshire. He has contributed to five books looking at various aspects of maritime history, including two that he solely researched and wrote. Both of those books, including his most recent, “The Mortal Sea: Fishing the Atlantic in the Age of Sail,” have earned international acclaim.
