Benson Gray

Benson Gray grew up in Old Town and has always loved old canoes. His work with computers, along with an interest in the history of canoe builders, has led to some interesting collaborations, including a project to scan and archive all Old Town Canoe Company catalogs published between 1901 and 1993. His largest project with the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association was to compile the Old Town, Carleton, and Kennebec build records, along with assembling an archive of the Wooden Canoe Journals.  His great grandfather was one of the founders of the Old Town Canoe Company.
