This study of Turner, Maine, is one of four research projects sponsored jointly by the Maine Agricultural Experiment Station and the Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development. The purpose of the research series is to trace the processes of persistency and change in four northern New England towns. Easton, Addison, and Turner, Maine, were studied by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in conjunction with the Maine Cooperative Extension Service in 1948 (Hay et al. 1949). Landaff, New Hampshire, was one of six communities comprising the series entitled Culture of a Contemporary Rural Community conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the post-depression era (MacLeish and Young 1942).
