WISCASSET — Lincoln County Historical Association Winter Lecture Series continues at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, with a Sumner McKane presentation “In the Blood — Logging in Maine.” The lecture will be held in the Wiscasset Communications Building on U.S. Route 1.

“In the Blood: An Illustration of the Life, History and Character of the Turn-of-the-Century Maine Lumbermen & River Drivers” and “The Maine Frontier: Through the Lens of Isaac Walton Simpson,” are illustrations of life, work, community and culture in northern Maine at the turn-of-the-century.

McKane is a composer, multi-instrumentalist and filmmaker based in mid-coast Maine. He combines film, photography, sound design, oral histories, and live music to present live docu-exhibits based on his educational experience as a historian and photographer, and from his career as a professional performing musician.

He studied photography at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, and at the University of Montana. He studied history at the University of Montana and at the University of Southern Maine, and graduated from USM with high honors in history, and is as a member of Phi Alpha Theta — the National Historians Honor Society.
