Historians Hosted at MHS

About 75 current and former researchers at Maine Historical Society’s Brown Library gathered at MHS on Friday, August 16, for the first-ever Historians Forum. The academics, graduate students, and independent scholars came from around Maine and beyond to get a special behind-the-scenes and deep-into-the-collections tour of the library, hear from a series of speakers about their research, and enjoy a collegial reception in the Longfellow Garden.

The half-day event gave MHS a chance to both celebrate the professional pursuit of history, and to extend a warm thanks to its ever-growing community of scholar-researchers. Given the robust turnout and glowing feedback, the forum is likely to be the first of many more such gatherings to come.
