Celebrating the life and work of Cape Cod writer, historian and character, Noel Beyle

He was featured many times on Channel 5’s “Chronicle” program. In one memorable segment he was golfing on Cape Cod Bay ice in the middle of winter. Legend has it he shot par.

He wrote columns on local historical factoids and for many years put together Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank’s calendar of vintage photographs and commentary. He was a lover of dogs (he had one in the 1970s named—of course!—“Kitty Kitty,” just to see people’s reaction when they called “here, kitty, kitty…”) and a philanthropist for which many local charities were the beneficiaries of his quiet generosity. 

Foremost, though, he was a storyteller. For over 40 years, Beyle was a local fixture who scoured the peninsula in search of a good story. He collected stories, complied stories and composed stories too. Even when he sang, gave lectures and dove into comedy—which he did, on occasion—he was really telling stories. Driving on Route 6A in the mid-1970s, he surmised once that “there is a story almost every four seconds here if you’re observant.”
