Glenn Fay's New England roots precede the American Revolution, and he was born in Middlebury, Vermont. As a kid, he was naturally drawn to Vermont's woods, lakes and streams and revered the outdoors. Glenn has lived in the Northeast Kingdom as well as Addison, Grand Isle and Chittenden Counties. He helped raise two kids in South Hero, taught middle and high school students and taught as an adjunct professor for years at the University of Vermont. In 1993, Glenn was awarded an NSF-funded fellowship to study the Maritime War of 1812 in the Champlain Valley. During this experience, the remarkable and dramatic history of Vermont and ghosts of the past came to life in the woods, lakes and streams. That experience planted seeds and began the research that would lead to a deep interest in preserving our past so we might hear the echoes and learn from them. When not engaged in research into the past, Glenn can be found trekking and exploring old haunts in the Champlain Islands, on Lake Champlain, in the Green Mountains and beyond.
