  2. On Saturday, August 16, Donn Fendler visited Maine Historical Society and talked about his experience in 1939, being 12 years old and lost on Mount Katahdin for nine days. His story was later turned into the classic book Lost on a Mountain in Maine, and many guests brought their copies for Donn to sign. He was joined by filmmaker Ryan Cook who shared film clips from his documentary as well as a "first look" for the feature film he plans to make that will share Donn's story with the world. This 75th anniversary event was co-sponsored by the Pine Tree Council's Boy Scouts of America.
