Nearly 130 years of preservation and study of
Kennebec County history (1891-2020)

________________


On Wednesday, July 22nd, former State House reporter Glenn Adams shared stories and history of our State's Capitol. His stories were about recent governors as well as figures who've loomed large in Maine and the nation's history such as Margaret Chase Smith.

All you need to do to view this presentation is head to the KHS Facebook page where it is still available to watch. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/events/647879925939229/

Glenn Adams worked as a reporter in the Maine State House for 32 years before his retirement in 2013. His beat included mostly state legislative and political issues, but also included a full range of general news that happened in Maine and sometimes beyond. Glenn previously worked as a reporter and editor for newspapers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 1979, he and his wife Betty Adams worked as co-editors of the daily newspaper published aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 as the liner traveled around the world. They live in Augusta.
