Abstract/ Summary

From the introduction: The titles here listed are supplementary to “A Bibliography for Mt. Ktaadn, Revised,” published in Appalachia, Vol. 16, No. 1, December, 1924.

Many of the additions, of a scientific nature, for this supplement were very kindly furnished by Mr. Arthur H. Norton, of the Portland Society of Natural History, Portland, Maine.

The spelling “Ktaadn,” appearing in the title of the earlier bibliography, was used by Briggs, Greenleaf, Hamlin, Harvey, Holley, Hubbard, Jackson, Lawrence, L. H. Merrill, C. E. Potter, Thoreau, and Trumbull. It was at one time in use by the Appalachian Mountain Club. The spelling “Katahdin” is in common use in the State of Maine. It was officially adopted by the United States Geographic Board April 4, 1893, and by the Appalachian Mountain Club in 1925.
