Abstract/ Summary

As its name implies, the present volume, the twentieth in our Atlantic States Series of Reviews, is made up of biographical sketches of representative citizens of Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, and Waldo Counties, its subjects being found in the ranks of the now living, or among those who have but recently passed from the scenes of their struggles and successes. Earnest workers in various fields of useful toil and high endeavor, the persons here commemorated, loyal sons and daughters of the State of Maine, have done their part, most of them being still active in furthering, each according to his several ability or opportunity, the industrial, political, and social development of the times.

The question of "Who's who?" being nowadays often considered, we have gladly availed ourselves of the genealogical data furnished by some of our patrons to show lines of descent and kinship, incidentally suggesting the transmission of characteristic traits, and tending to strengthen the ties of human brotherhood. The best way to honor noble ancestors is to emulate their virtues. The wise generation does its own work in its own way, and, writing its own records, leaves to posterity an example worthy of imitation.
