Marshall Dodge

Marshall Dodge (1935-1982) was a well-known Maine humorist. He and his associate, Robert Bryan, put out several defining albums of Maine humor, starting with Bert & I, released in 1958.[1] In 1964 he and Noel Parmentel published (with accompanying LP record) a long-remembered parody of popular folk songs entitled Folk Songs for Conservatives.

In 1976, he founded the Maine Festival of the Arts at Bowdoin College.[2] In a 1979 interview, Dodge claimed that his real love was philosophy, and that he was writing a book on the subject.[3]

He died in a hit-and-run accident in 1982 in Waimea, Hawaii.[4]
