  • Local History Talk: A Rockland Sea Captain – Borne on the Wind

    Co-sponsored with the Rockland Historical Society. Rockland native John Anderson will talk about his new book, Borne on the Wind, based on his grandfather’s journals. John’s grandfather, Captain Anders Anderson, began his sailing career at age sixteen, leaving his home in Sweden and sailing to ports around the world. He emigrated to the United States where he captained two- and three-masted schooners for over forty-two years. Captain Anderson kept journals for thirty-five years which provide an important historical record of a lost era – the final days of the Atlantic sailing trade. John will show photographs taken by his father who sailed aboard Captain Anderson’s ship as a teenager. Following the program, John will be signing copies of his book, and there will be refreshments in the Museum of the Rockland Historical Society.

    John Anderson, the son of a local fisherman, graduated from Rockland District High School and majored in political science at the University of Maine. He worked in the international travel industry for many years and then taught middle school history and English.
