Bowdoin College has provided generous resources and support for our project. Initial funding came from a Rusack Coastal Studies Research Award, Faculty Development Committee. David Israel, Associate Director of Communications for New Media, produced and built this website. Don King, Senior Audio Visual Specialist, Information Technology Department, provided valuable advice on equipment and presentation strategies. Andrew Currier, Educational Technology Consultant, Information Technology Department, helped us with technical questions and challenges. Diana Tuite, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow at the Bowdoin Museum of Art, spearheaded the exhibition that appeared in summer and fall 2012.
Many libraries and archives in Maine have opened their collections and shared their expertise thus far: the Bowdoin College Library, the Edmund S. Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library at Bates College, the Maine Historical Society, and the Osher Map Library at the University of Southern Maine. This list will expand as our project evolves.
We also thank all of our narrators for sharing their stories—all are priceless gifts for us and for the citizens of Maine. Our Bowdoin students over the years have also influenced our art and scholarship with their smart questions and engagement with the world around them.
Finally, we extend our deepest personal thanks to three remarkable people: our friend and fishing guru, Macauley Lord, who introduced us to the joys of fishing on the Androscoggin River by kickboat; and our spouses and colleagues, Connie Y. Chiang and Christy Shake.
