Mason Winfield

Mason Winfield studied English and Classics at Denison University, earned a master’s degree in British literature at Boston College, and studied poetry and fiction at SUNY Buffalo with professor emeritus and MacArthur grant recipient Irving Feldman. For thirteen years he taught English at The Gow School (South Wales, NY), during which time he chaired the English department, won a 50K cross-country ski marathon, and was ranked several times among the Buffalo, NY, area’s top ten
tennis players. He has written or edited nineteen books, including the regional sensation Shadows of the Western Door (1997) and Iroquois Supernatural, a book on the traditions of the Six Longhouse Nations (Inner Traditions International/Bear & Company, 2011) co-authored with Michael Bastine.

Mason is the founder of Western New York’s original supernatural tourism company, Haunted History Ghost Walks, Inc., and co-founder–with Michael Bastine–of the research organization Spirit Way Project. Mason is likely to be found leading any tour, though his focus in 2024 is in East Aurora. He is the only tour guide who will lead The Village Ghost Walk and The Supernatural Roycroft.
