Du Mais Family Collection
1945 – 1956
Collection contains [Du Mais--home movies] with a mix of family events such as vacations, holiday rituals, and sporting activities. It also captures regional subjects such as Colby College’s Mayflower Hill campus when it opened, construction activities from the early 1950s, parades, fires, summer camps in Maine, herring catches in the Sheepscot River, travel footage from Guatemala in 1954, New York City scenes, and amateur footage of the Mayo Clinic.
The films are a record of a Lewiston, Maine, family, Alcid F. DuMais, M.D., his wife Natalie Dennis DuMais, and their four children. The collection documents the end of Dr. DuMais’s WWII Navy service, a surgical residency at the Mayo Clinic, and the establishment of a private practice in Lewiston, Maine, where he was Chief of Surgery at St. Mary’s Hospital.
