Abstract

Article about Searsport's 58-year-old Penobscot Marine Musuem, which first opened in 1936. The museum, which encompasses ten buildings and has a paid staff of 14 (29 in the summer) and a budget of nearly a half-million dollars, is directed by Renny A. Stackpole, the son of the late maritime historian Edouard Stackpole, who was a key figure in the development of Mystic Seaport Museum, one of the world's leading maritime museums. Jack H. Carver, whose father, Clifford Carver,worked with author-historian Lincoln Colcord, to found the museum, stepped down from the board just last year, ending 57 years of carver leadership at the museum.
