Bangor's Unsolved Mysteries

$10

with Richard Shaw

Calendar Apr 25, 2018 at 7 pm, runs for 1 week

The Queen City of the East is brimming with puzzling stories that have no ending. Topping the list is the mystery photo of a young girl found in gangster Al Brady’s pocket after the 1937 gun battle that claimed his life. Also discussed are an unsolved homicide at the Bangor House, questions surrounding the Great Bangor Fire, and lingering questions at Mount Hope and Mount Pleasant Cemeteries. Other mysteries surround Bangor’s first settler, Jacob Buswell, and its millionaire lumber barons, Rufus Dwinal, Sam Veazie, and Sam Hersey. Historian Richard Shaw will provide his trademark colorful commentary, punctuated by rare and interesting photos. A related video will be screened in the seminar’s second hour. Richard Shaw is a Bangor native and the city’s unofficial historian. A 30-year staff member of the Bangor Daily News, he has compiled eight illustrated books for Arcadia Publishing and writes features for Bangor Metro.
