Here are a number of links and information regarding the DEWLine that I’ve found helpful or interesting.
Larry Wilson’s DEWLine pages. This excellent site is probably the largest and most referenced Internet site regarding all things DEWLine. This is the starting point for anyone wanting to research this topic.
Paul Kelley’s “Memories of Fox Main.” Paul and I have been collaborating and coordinating our collective memories of our experiences on the DEWLine for a number of years now. He had produced a prodigious amount of information that is impressive in its detail. You can sample some of his writing as he takes you on a detailed tour of the business end of being a Radician at Fox Main in the early 1960’s. Check out Paul’s many stories in the War Stories section of Larry Wilson’s DEWLine website (see above).
My E-book, “Adventures from the Coldest Part of the Cold War”.
This is the original e-book from which much of the material on this web was derived. Instead of publishing the information as a book, I decided to forgo millions of dollars in royalties and make it more readily available through this web site. :>)
The e-book was recently updated to include my 2012 trip back to FOX Main (Hall Beach) for a stroll down memory lane.

An Old DEWLiner’s Pilgrimage.
This is a 25 minute video slideshow of my stroll down memory lane during my pilgrimage to Hall Beach NU (FOX Main) in July 2012. It’s a combination of slides and videos of the site as it is today and includes a video tour of the inside of the main modules.

The DEW Line Years,Voices from the Coldest Cold War.
Frances Jewel Dickson’s captivating book of Arctic stories.
Author Frances Jewel Dickson’s tribute to DEWLiners is a compelling read for anyone who wants to know what it is like to live and work in one of the coldest parts of the world. Drawing from the experiences of many, Frances skillfully weaves them into a story that warms the heart on a cold winter’s night. I highly recommend this book. You can obtain an autographed copy from her web site at www.voicesetc.ca.
Nelson Bell’s Photos. In November of 2014 I received an email from Dan Bell with a link to a large number of photo’s that his Father, Nelson, had either taken or found during his stay on the DEWLine during the years 1956 to 1972 (Dan thinks).
