Doug Burnell


Doug will present a pair of programs in January and February that explore the interesting history of area land grants and charters, divisions by the proprietary, and settlement of the town of Conway, all leading up to our fairly unique array of common and undivided lands.

Conflicting grants by Massachusetts Bay Colony (Maine), claims by the Masonian proprietors, and the nature and disposition of the residual common lands will be examined along the way.

Doug is a descendant of original proprietor Ebenezer Burbank, recently retired as Principal at H.E. Bergeron Engineers in North Conway. Doug has deep family connections in Western Maine and the Mount Washington Valley, and he has been active in the community since childhood. He has been on numerous non-profit boards in the area, most notably serving as President of Tin Mountain’s Board when the organization relocated to a new campus and built an outdoor education facility and office space. He has been on the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust Board since 2010.

Then to top it off, in March, the curators will present a program on White Mountain maps andsurveying tools and techniques.

HISTORY:

I often say of George Washington
that he was one of the few
in the whole history of the world
who was not carried away by power.
Robert Frost

A truly American sentiment recognizes
the dignity of labor
and the fact that
honor lies in honest toil.
Grover Cleveland

History is not a burden on the memory
but an illumination of the soul.
Lord Acton

Human history becomes more and more
a r
ace between
education and catastrophe.
H. G. Wells
