  • Stanley - Ralph Warren Stanley (1929-)
  • Southwest Harbor Public Library
  • 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.

…Before developing the Stanley Steamer, Francis had a studio in Auburn, Maine where he specialized in large-scale photographic portraits. …After seeing those pictures, I would go home, draw ship pictures, color them with crayons, and take them to her next time we went to see her.
