      Daniel M. Maher, Sr. was a newsreel cameraman who worked for major news companies including Pathe, Fox and Universal. He also worked as a still photographer for the Bangor Daily News newspaper. He is the model for the Northeast Historic Film logo. The silent newsreel Kinograms was introduced shortly after World War I; it was highly successful for several years but declined in the late 1920s and went into receivership in 1931.
