Chris Hodgkins was a graduate of the University of Maine. He developed an interest in Mount Desert Island area folklore when he worked for his father’s construction firm remodeling a restaurant in Northeast Harbor. While there he met several local characters and was later able to interview Jake Lunt (a teller of jokes, mostly dirty) and Raymond Mace for a class (FO 179) in the Fall 1968 semester.
