Helen K. Atchison



Helen K. Atchison collected oral histories of Aroostook County as part of a project conducted under the auspices of the Cary Library in Houlton, Maine. In June 1971, the Aroostook County libraries received a grant to develop an informal oral history of the county, and over the next year Atchison was one of several interviewers who covered the length and breadth of the largest county east of the Mississippi River. Mrs. Atchison’s interviews, which total more than 100, comprise the vast majority of the Maine Folklife Center’s Aroostook County Oral History Collection.
