‘The Maine Question’ features prominent alumni Allen and Sally Fernald

Allen and Sally Fernald of Camden, Maine have long been advocates for the University of Maine. Since graduating in 1954 and 1955, the owners and publishers of Down East Magazine have donated to various capital campaigns, sponsored art galleries and poetry readings, and led alumni groups and fundraising drives.  

In Episode 10 of Season 6 of “The Maine Question,” the Fernalds discuss their lifelong relationship with their alma mater, and how the state and UMaine have evolved overtime, including the university’s development into a top-tier, nationally recognized research institution.
