Islands and Bridges: Communities of Memory in Old Town, Maine/French Island Collection
Scope and Contents
A 1992 community based oral history project co-sponsored by the Maine Folklife Center and the Franco-American Center at the University of Maine generated a series of 35 interviews focusing on the culture and history of the French Canadian immigrant community located on French Island, Old Town, Maine.
