Tim Garrity is a local historian, and the Executive Director of the Mount Desert Island (MDI) Historical Society, which keeps, discovers, and celebrates the history of MDI.

Showing us around the restored Sound Schoolhouse, Tim spent much of our meeting running off to find books, resources, and contacts that could help us in our quest for folklore. But he remained present in our conversation, listening and responding to each of our inquiries and eager to help, as new explorers of the history of the island. We’re so grateful to have met as generous a guide as Tim.
