Dick Snow

Dick Snow is a retired history teacher and also a writer. He wrote a book about Birch Island, a place he visits seasonally. He knows a lot about and has a lot of insight into the lives of the people who have lived there before he was born, during his childhood, and even in the present day. In this audio clip, Dick shares his encyclopedic knowledge about Bailey, Birch and Orr’s Islands; how people have lived there, their societal norms and how they’ve changed over the years.

Interview and story by Wyatt Couture & Duncan Mains at Harpswell Coastal Academy, 2015. In collaboration with the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust and Galen Koch.
