Foster’s Advances Judd’s ‘Historical Atlas’ Talk in Alfred

Foster’s reported University of Maine historian Richard Judd will speak as part of a series in Alfred sponsored by The Friends of Alfred Shaker Museum and the Sanford-Springvale Historical Society. On Oct. 4, Judd will discuss the newly published “Historical Atlas of Maine.” The atlas is a geographical and historical interpretation of the state, from the end of the last ice age to 2000. It culminates a 15-year scholarly project led by UMaine researchers. Judd and UMaine geographer Stephen Hornsby edited the book that contains cartography by Michael Hermann. The series is offered with support from the Maine Humanities Council, Kennebunk Savings Bank, the Alfred Historical Society and individual donors.
