  • Author Talk with Roger Moody: Logging Towboats and Boom Jumpers, The Story of O.A. Harkness

    Orris Albert “O.A.” Harkness was a true mechanical genius. From 1903 to 1951, he contributed significantly to the success of the Penobscot Log Driving Company and the Great Northern Paper Company in Maine’s Penobscot River timberlands by utilizing the developing technologies of the times to move logs efficiently to paper mills. His career began with designing and constructing several log boom tow boats and included designing dozens of “boom jumpers.” The book includes many photographs of the time, as it explores logging in the Penobscot and Allagash watersheds. Written for those who are intrigued by history, it also contains expansive historical information about the many aspects of logging in the first half of the 20th century.
