November 19, 2014 – Mr. James L. Witherell, currently of Lewiston, formerly a graduate of West Peru Grammar School and Stephens High School, will discuss his recently published book on the early life of Edmund S. Muskie. Mr. Witherell’s book (Ed Muskie, Made in Maine….The Early Years 1914-1960) is the first book to be published in the past 40 years on Senator Muskie, and was published on the 100th Anniversary of Muskie’s birth. Much of his research for the book was obtained from the Rumford Historical Society’s Archives Office in the Town Hall. The author will host the meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Rumford Town Hall, at 145 Congress St., Rumford, ME.
All meetings of the Rumford Historical Society are open to the public, and new members are always welcomed. We look forward to seeing current members and other interested individuals.
