Here's Your Chance to Learn About Alice Zwicker--One of the Unsung Heroes of Maine!

Join Author Walter M. MacDougall on March 7 at 1 pm when he will present a slide show and lecture on the life and service of Alice Zwicker. Alice grew up in Brownville, Maine and served as an army nurse in the Philippines at the opening of World War II. Captured by the Japanese, she was a prisoner for three years. She returned home as a hero where she fought against the tuberculosis she had contracted as a prisoner and emerged a victor due to her indomitable spirit and faith.

Our lecturer, Walter Macdougall, graduated from the University of Maine with a BA in philosophy and English literature. He earned an MA in teaching science and a DEd. Walter taught science in public school and at the University of Maine, where he was a graduate faculty member and taught a graduate course in educational philosophy. After retirement, he taught in Honors College at the University of Maine. He has written a number of books including Angel of Bataan.
