Meet the Author

Hazen Emery Way was born on June 14, 1895, one of the eleven children of John W. and Olive (Hillman) Way. A multi-talented man, he was never out of work during the depression because of his many skills in his blacksmith shop in the left lower corner of his house lot on Old Ridge. He shoed horses, made sleds ( “”double runners”) for neighborhood children to slide down the many hills on Old Ridge when there were not many vehicles on the road during those years. He also made sleds that horses pulled bringing trees out of the woods. He could make anything a person would want in that shop. He made trailers for camping, similar to the Airstream ones we see today. He also worked as a mechanic for Stewart & McKay in St. Stephen and did electric work with his son Raymond. At one time he owned a small country store by the road in the front of his home. He owned blueberry grounds and harvested blueberries. And he worked in the woods in Bolton, New Brunswick.
Hazen loved to sing and over the years he wrote his own songs. He sang duets with his daughter-in-law, Betty Way, a Scottish lass who met Earl in Scotland during World War II.
