Maine media highlight Lown portrait unveiling ceremony

Bernard Lown, who graduated from the University of Maine in 1942, was honored as the subject of a new portrait from the “Americans Who Tell the Truth” series by artist Robert Shetterly for his commitment to serving humanity. Maine Public, the Sun Journal and CounterPunch reported on the unveiling event at Bates Mill in Lewiston, where UMaine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy said Lown’s influence is still recognized on campus and inspires students “to make their own paths.” The Portland Press Herald shared the report from the Sun Journal.
