Maine History Maker of the Year

Merton Henry. a retired senior partner and friend was honored as the first recipient of the Maine Historical Society’s Maine History Maker of the Year.  The recitation of his civic and professional accomplishments, both in Greater Portland and State-wide, was truly impressive and brought great honor to Mert and the law firm.  U.S. Sen. Susan Collins appeared by video and was extremely complimentary in her remarks -- particularly regarding Mert’s uncommon good sense and wise counsel over a whole range of legal, political and practical matters on which he has advised generations of Maine’s civic and elected leaders and decision makers.  Mert began his 64 year affiliation with the Maine Historical Society while still enrolled at his beloved Bowdoin College.
