Malcolm "Mac" Masters
, was born in Harbour Buffet in 1909. He resettled to Arnold's Cove in 1967. Mac went fishing at 13, became a sailor on foreign-going schooners at 17 and was mate and captain of various local boats after that. Many people in Placentia Bay remember him visiting their communities as skipper of the merchant's trading vessel.
This rich full life made him one of our finest singers and storytellers. His house, which he floated down from Harbour Buffet, was a gathering place for many good times. Mac died in 1977.
