Digital Book of Memory unveiling included in BDN roundup of Veterans Day events
The unveiling of the Digital Book of Memory at the University of Maine was included in a Bangor Daily News roundup of Veterans Day events scheduled around the state. The Digital Book of Memory contains portraits and obituaries of UMaine’s 261 fallen dating back to the Spanish-American War. It is the culmination of a larger Memorial Room project and was inspired by the original Book of Memory created by the University of Maine Alumni Association in 1946 that honored and memorialized UMaine’s fallen from World War II. Before the Nov. 9 unveiling, guest speakers were scheduled to talk about the project and the importance of commemorating those lost during military service.
