Champlain Society Logbooks

An adventurous, curious, and scientifically-minded group of Harvard students spent several summers cataloging, exploring, and enjoying Mount Desert Island. This group of young men created a foundation of scientific research that continues today. They called themselves the Champlain Society after Samuel Champlain. The Maine Memory Network presents the Mount Desert Island Historical Society’s collection of Champlain Society scanned and transcribed logbooks, records, and photographs.
