About William P Ryan

William P. Ryan (Bill) retired to Palm Coast Florida with his wife Pat after some 65 years in the high technology photographic industry. His technical interests and early experience as a journalist (Buffalo Evening News and Courier Express) later brought him some fame as a speaker and writer for groups such as The Professional Photographers of America, where he was awarded the degree of "craftsman," the White House Press Photographers, and other groups where he introduced new lighting techniques for color illustration. He was CEO of several well known technical marketing companies and helped to develop one of the first digital color print systems for high quality photo color paper. Early in his career he worked in the Professional Products Advertising Department of Ansco, Binghamton, N.Y., one of America's oldest photo firms. Here he became involved in photo history via original plates and prints of Civil War Photographer Mathew Brady then at Ansco. His career and contacts took him to many European and Asian countries via the then international photographic industry. Arriving in Florida in 1991 Bill helped to create Flagler County's first Internet site, back in the primitive days. This then brought him into the history of Flagler located between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach on Florida's Atlantic Coast. Bill Ryan loves to collect stories, often those never told or known before. He writes in a first person style and tells how many of these stories arrived at his door often in a amazing manner. He is not a professional historian but writes what he believes "really did happen" based on his original documents and research. Door to Time in Florida is his latest and involves some time experiments by Nikola Tesla!
