About the Author
A native of Gloucester, John N. Morris, PhD, is Director Emeritus of the Institute for Aging Research (IFAR) at Hebrew Senior Life in Boston, a Harvard-affiliated hospital and research program. He has published widely in his field. Morris’s ancestors have been fishermen going back to the seventeenth century. His father was a Gloucester fish cutter and his mother a fish packer. His grandfather, Stephen Olsson, spent four decades as a Gloucester doryman, until he drowned on the Grand Banks off Newfoundland in 1935. Morris’s book opens and closes with stories handed down from Grandpa. Morris is a board member of the group preserving one of the last of the surviving Gloucester schooners, the Adventure. He lives in northern Massachusetts, in the small town of Tyngsboro.
