‘Historical Atlas of Maine’ Inspires MCF Trivia Quiz

Maine Community Foundation CEO Meredith Jones compiled a trivia quiz based on the “Historical Atlas of Maine,” a 15-year project led by University of Maine researchers, including historian Richard Judd, geographer Stephen Hornsby and now-deceased Professor of English Burton Hatlen. Jones said she would give a polar fleece vest with the MCF logo to the person who posted correct responses to all eight trivia questions.

One of the eight questions: Ice cut from the Kennebec River in the 1880s was shipped to which of the following countries:

  1. India
  2. New Zealand
  3. China
  4. South Africa
  5. Bermuda
