Details: The Camden Public Library will host an encore presentation of Roger Moody's fascinating account of the life of Camden/Rockport native O.A. Harkness on Monday, August 12, at 11:00 am. Moody’s book, Logging Towboats and Boom Jumpers, describes how Harkness helped Great Northern become the largest paper mill in the world by building a specialized inland navy to move logs to the mill. Harkness also operated an innovative logging tramway, a fleet of Lombard log haulers, and a landlocked wilderness railroad to move logs from the Saint John watershed to the Penobscot. The presentation will discuss many aspects of logging in the first half of the 20th century. For more information, visit
