CaptainMacCover_smPlease join the New Gloucester Historical Society for it’s October 17 public meeting, when our own Mary Morton Cowan will give her presentation “Donald B. MacMillan, Explorer.”  The program will be held at the Meetinghouse, 389 Intervale Road, on Thursday, October 17, at 7 pm…with refreshments by Avis Ford.

Mary is a writer of non-fiction books for juvenile readers.  We are proud to have two of her books in the church library:  TIMBERRR…, about logging in northern New England, and CAPTAIN MAC, a biography of arctic explorer Donald MacMillan, with whom Mary’s family was associated as suppliers of some of his equipment.
