D-F Historical Society meets Sept. 3

    DOVER-FOXCROFT — On Wednesday, Sept. 3, the Dover-Foxcroft Historical Society will present a program entitled “Fred E. Bailey: Maker of Fine Fishing Flies and Spinners.”

    Bailey (1854-1940) was an early businessman in Dover-Foxcroft. The illustrated program will be given by William B. Krohn, emeritus professor, University of Maine. He will also be talking about Bailey’s son, Carl Bailey (1881-1943) who worked with his father before he and his wife started their own business — the Bailey Photography Studio.
    Krohn is a retired wildlife biologist who worked almost four decades for the U. S. Department of the Interior.  He is an avid angler and since his retirement has combined his personal and professional interests to study the history of Maine’s outdoor heritage.
