Searsport Families at Sea and Home

with Cipperly Good


Learn about Searsport families in the nineteenth and early 20th century. Participants will have a chance to transcribe and do a live reading of journal entries and letters by Searsport residents to be recorded for exhibits, educational content, and programs. They will create a brief biography of the author of their piece.

Cipperly Good, the Richard Saltonstall Jr. Curator of Maritime History at the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine, oversees the object, archive and library collections. Ms. Good holds a Bachelor’s degree from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, where she double majored in History and American Studies. She spent her junior year “abroad” at the Williams College-Mystic Seaport Maritime Studies Program, which sparked her career in maritime history and maritime museums. She holds a Masters of Arts in Museum Studies, with a concentration in American History, from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Previous to working at Penobscot Marine Museum, Ms. Good taught maritime history for the Ocean Classroom-Proctor Academy semester and worked as a curator at the Los Angeles Maritime Museum and Falmouth (Massachusetts) Historical Society.
