Edward Rowe Snow, author, lecturer and historian, was born in Winthrop, Mass. and spent most of his life studying the lighthouses, islands, and legends of the New England coast. Mr. Snow has been credited with over 150 books and pamphlets as well as tens of thousands of newspaper articles, lectures, and tours of the area. With his beloved wife Anna-Myrle and daughter Dorothy, Mr. Snow made hundreds of visits to light stations throughout New England. The Snows considered the light keepers and their families to be extensions of their own family, and the feelings were mutual. Today, many consider Mr. Snow’s interesting and readable accounts of life at these stations to have been the impetus launching today's increase in lighthouse interest and preservation. Shown is Mr. Snow doing one of his many radio broadcasts.
