“Clem” Walls was known to wander all over the Maine coast, leaving many stories behind him.

“The Ellsworth American says that the story that the well known Clem Walls, an exotic of Mt. Desert Island, has recovered from the malady that has affected him from boyhood and has recovered his mental soundness, is again going the rounds. Clem is the same Clem that he has been and probably always will be.” – The Lewiston Daily Sun, November 10, 1894, p. 2.
