Abstract (Document Summary)

Born in the coastal town of Harrington in 1909, [Bruce Farnsworth] was a toddler when his family moved to Orono.

As a young man, Farnsworth wanted a college education. He drove to Earlham College in Indiana in his Model T Ford, but homesickness drew him back to Maine. He attended the state university for a year, but cracking a college text never excited him like the clatter of commerce.
