Jack Russell

Jack Russell was born and raised on Mount Desert Island. Educated for a tweedy academic life as a literary historian, in the 1960s he redirected his energies to a half-century as community organizer, policy analyst, organizational leader, and single-shingle consultant. Since returning to MDI in 2006, he has worked on conservation, written on national and local politics and regional history, offered ASC courses on Acadian and island history, Walden and Moby Dick.
