Desmond McGrath column
Desmond is a Petroleum Engineer by training with a BSc. (Honors) from Montana Tech as well as two technical diplomas in the area of Hydraulics, Instrumentation and Petroleum Technology.

He hails originally from the former Nation of Newfoundland, which was forced into a union with Canada to become the 10th province in 1949. He comes from a long family line of Engineers, Lawyers, Doctors, and others with a working man's Ph.D.

Family members, for example, include one who was with Churchill and Roosevelt when they signed the Atlantic Charter and another who worked closely with Cyrus Field engineering and laying the first transatlantic telegraph cable in the 1850's. Others who fought in major and decisive battles of the First and Second World Wars.

He has an extensive collection of rare books inherited from these ancestors, including similar editions that the signatories of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States drew inspiration from for their divinely inspired work. He has traveled and worked extensively around the world and now makes his home amongst the Cajuns along the bayous of South Louisiana.

In addition to his engineering career, he is an inventor, avid photographer, writer, political activist and rebel without a pause – sometimes taking time out to tinker with the occasional vintage motorcycle.
