Hi Andrea:

Your patron might be referring to Legacy of a Lifetime; The Story of Baxter State Park by Dr. John W. Hakola, published in 1981. The first chapter is devoted to 19th century background.  Dr. Rogers' own account, "My First Trip to Katahdin,"  appeared in the May 1960, issue of Down East and John Neff's Kathahdin; An Historic Journey describes early exploration, including a small section about Rogers, titled " Young Adventurers."

MSL would be glad to loan the titles or provide a copy of the Rogers article.  If these suggestions are not useful, please let me know and I will continue to look.

Subject: [MELIBS-L] Early History of Katahdin Ascents?


I have a patron who is looking for a copy of what he believes was called something like "History of Early Katahdin Ascents."  Written in the 80s and making reference to Luther and Lore Rogers.

If you have any information about this book, please let us know.

Thanks you,
