Abstract

"West End People" piece with a profile of Abraham Schechter, a West End resident and curator of special collections at the Portland Room of the Portland Public Library. A native of New York City, Schechter worked as a photographer for 12 years before studying library science and archives administration in Boston. He has taught at the Maine College of Art and at St. Joseph's College. Schechter is spearheading the Portland Neighborhoods Archive Project, aimed at preserving the unique history of Portland. The project is still in the conceptual stage, though the library is soliciting donations of photographs and documents that tell the neighborhood stories.
