Frontier to Industrial City by Douglas I Hodgkin

Book Description

Lewiston recently received the All-American City award. That might be emblematic for Lewiston. Its history, location, people and industry-all serve as an example of small riverside settlements that grew into industrial cities over the course of a century early in our country's history. Douglas Hodgkin presents a spectacular array of information in a very readable form. From schools, to factories, to founding families, to all the minutiae that create a town-Frontier to Industrial City provides a clear picture of the many facets of Lewiston during its transformation. Those interested in small town histories, local politics, or all things Lewiston will want to own this book. Hodgkin gives us the best of meticulous attention to detail, insightful illustration choices, detailed endnotes, dozens of explanatory tables and an extensive index. Every Maine resident should read Frontier to Industrial City to understand the perils, hard work and dreams that have created Maine towns. About the Author: Douglas I. Hodgkin, a native of Lewiston, Maine, whose ancestors were among the original settlers of the town, received his PhD in political science at Duke University. A graduate of Lewiston High School, Hodgkin returned to Maine after college. Now Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Bates College, his books on Lewiston history include Lewiston Memories: A Bicentennial Pictorial (1994), Historic Lewiston: The Grange at Crowley's Junction (2003), and Fractured Family: Fighting in the Maine Courts (2005). He also authored the chapter on Lewiston in Androscoggin County, Maine: A Pictorial Sesquicentennial History, 1854-2004 (2003). An active local historian he is editor of Androscoggin History, the newsletter of the Androscoggin Historical Society, and serves on Lewiston's Historic Preservation Review Board. Hodgkin also produced the history of Lewiston and the history of the City's Kennedy Park found on the City's website. He transcribed Lewiston's town meeting records in two volumes published as Records of Lewiston, Maine by Picton Press in 2001 and 2002.
