  Edgar Mudge was born in 1942 in a small community on the Great Northern Pennisula of Newfoundland. Bonne Bay was his home until he was ready to start his teaching career. In the 1950s teachers were in great demand. High school graduates could attend a summer school program at Memorial University where they would receive six weeks of training in education before accepting positions in small rural schools in communities across the island. Edgar participated in the summer school program and spent his first year teaching at Reef Harbour, a community north of his home, Bonne Bay. Edgar later returned to university where he finished his degree and continued his teaching career in a number of Newfoundland communities. His last assignment was as vice-principal at Mount Pearl Junior High School. Edgar retired from teaching after 29 years of service. He currently resides in Mount Pearl where keeps fit by working out regularly and enjoys his hobbies of woodworking, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and fly tying.
