about

Excerpt from Sprague's Journal of Maine History, Vol. 9: January, February, March, 1921

I am not giving a Homeric recitation. But no man can refer to Maine heroism without pointing to the most famous man of the generation, in Maine, and perhaps in the Nation. We can never forget the thrill the world felt when the message was ?ashed through the air: The Stars and Stripes are nailed to the North Pole; and we knew that what men had long thought impossible had been accomplished by Peary of Maine - of Bowdoin '77.

I have talked to you about the forests, the seashore, and the politics of the old District. They are still there. The unresting sea can never change or fail. The forest, too, is not vitally changed by the busy axe of industry. Maine is still two - thirds forest.
