Jasper Jacob Stahl was probably born in 1888 (various sources indicate 1886-1888) in Waldoboro, Maine. As the son of a sea captain he sailed around the Horn to Valparaiso on his father’s ship, then graduated from Bowdoin summa cum laude, a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He taught at Reed College, but was interrupted by his service as an officer in the United States Navy in World War I. Subsequently he spent thirty-eight years as Director of Studies for the renowned Hill School Pottstown, Pennsylvania from 1918-1947. He was a historian of Waldoboro and author of "History of Old Broad Bay and Waldoboro." He also studied Germans in Maine.
