  • 2017-07-09
Historian, Genealogist, Musician, Boat Builder, Author, Raconteur - there is only one Ralph Stanley. Ralph bears many titles and awards, but for the Southwest Harbor Public Library he is, most of all, a friend. Ralph started using the library as a child and continued as an adult, graduated to Trustee, to President of the Trustees, and, in 2013, became our first Trustee Emeritus. Since 2007 he has spent hundreds of hours patiently identifying people, places and vessels in the Digital Archive. He gave the library his vast collection of photographs, The Ralph Warren Stanley Collection, in 2014. For years he has told us stories of his family, friends and adventures on Mount Desert Island. Archivists have written down almost every word and fact – a treasure for the collection and for the community. This is his chef d’oeuvre, The Stanleys of Cranberry Isles…and Other Colorful Characters, Ralph’s own story, based on his own research and in his own words. To purchase the print version of this book please contact the Southwest Harbor Public Library at archivist@swhplibrary.org or (207) 244-7065.

  • Reference
  • Places, Island
  • Bar Harbor
The Porcupine Islands, named for their resemblance to a group of porcupines, in Frenchman Bay off the coast of Bar Harbor. The islands are Sheep Porcupine Island, Burnt Porcupine Island, Long Porcupine Island and Bald Porcupine Island. The islands are uninhabited and owned by Acadia National Park. They are nesting areas for a number of sea birds and access to some islands is restricted during nesting season. The islands get their distinctive shape from their formation as they were carved by retreating glaciers moving north to south. This created the gentle slope on the north side with a sharp drop off in the south end.
