Dr. Matthew Edney is the curator of the Osher Map Library’s Maine Bicentennial Exhibition, Mapping Maine: The Land and Its Peoples, 1677-1842.

Dr. Edney has been a professor of geography at the University of Southern Maine since 2007 and is the Osher Professor in the History of Cartography with responsibility for courses in map history. He is also a “faculty scholar” in the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education.

Maps

1916 – USGS Map of the “Portland Quadrangle”

This map is the 1943 reprint and includes from 70° 15′ to 70° 30′W and 43° 30′ to 43° 30′N. The map includes all of Portland and Scarboro and much of Westbrook, South Portland, Old Orchard, Saco and parts of Windham, Gorham, Buxton, and Cape Elizabeth. This map is of particular interest as it shows the locations of the various railroad lines in 1916 including the various electric rails, such as the “Portland and Saco Electric,” various schools, such as the “Broad Turn School,” and places of interest such as the “Buggy Meeting House.” This map is available at Digital Maine and the USGS.

Celebrating Maine’s Bicentennial – Part 1

Past and Present: Perspectives on Maine Statehood

Dr. Liam Riordan, Ph.D.

Sunday, March 1 at 2:00 pm

Dr. Liam Riordan will open our Bicentennial Series with the presentation Past and Present: Perspectives on Maine Statehood. This illustrated presentation explores the long statehood process in Maine that culminated in 1820 with formal separation from Massachusetts. That struggle engaged a range of challenging public issues that are still recognizable in contemporary Maine politics and culture.

The talk focuses on four themes that bridge 200 years in telling ways: the “two Maines” and sharp partisan conflict, the explosive pace of slavery vis-a-vis the Maine-Missouri Compromise, Wabanaki sovereignty, and the uncertain location of the international border to at least 1842.

Dr. Riordan is an early American historian specializing in the broad Revolutionary era (ca. 1760-1830) and has been a faculty member at the University of Maine since 1997. He has led community discussions across Maine about the statehood process and organized a public scholarly conference to commemorate the bicentennial of the state of Maine held May 31-June 1, 2019 at the University of Maine.

Ralph Adolph Johnson“Ralph Adolph Johnson” – Photo by Marion, Lowell, Mass. There was a Ralph Adolph John, who married Almira Louise Johnson on 7 Sep 1916 in South Portland, Cumberland, Maine. At the time of the Marriage, Ralph lived in Lowell, Mass; he was 23 years old and born in Scarboro, Maine. I am confident this is Ralph Adolph Johnson (1893-1972).  There is no entry for this person in Family Search. I’ll see he is added to the Scarborough Historical Society photo collection.
