The members of the Kennebec Historical Society of Augusta recently elected Jamie Carter Logan of Augusta as president.
Logan, 35, a freelance writer and consultant, replaces Patsy Garside Crockett, also of Augusta, who has stepped down after four years in office.
Mark Laney of Winthrop was elected Treasurer, succeeding Doreen Harvey, also of Winthrop. Kent London of Vassalboro and Stefanie Barley of Augusta were re-elected to their positions of Executive Vice President and Secretary, respectively.
Logan, who grew up in Portland, has lived in Augusta for nine years. She holds a BA in Politics with a Minor in Philosophy and a Minor in Theology and Religious Studies from the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC; and a Masters in Maine Studies from the University of Maine at Orono. She took over as administrator of the company’s Facebook page in 2016 and launched her Instagram account.
When the coronavirus prompted the company to suspend its historical monthly in-person conferences in 2020, Logan began coordinating the online versions, and they continued for over a year.
Today, she is the youngest president of the company in more than three decades.
Laney, 58, of Winthrop, is a chiropractor who has practiced in Augusta, his hometown, since 1988. He opened his own clinic in 1990.
A graduate of Gardiner Area High School, he received his doctorate in chiropractic in 1987 from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri. His professional experience includes having served for the past four years on the board of directors of the Maine Chiropractic Association.
He is also a member of the Augusta Country Club, where he served on the club’s green committee for five years; and he helped write and edit the Maine State Golf Association’s centennial book, “The Game is Here to Stay,” in 2017.
The Kennebec Historical Society, which has about 800 members, founded in 1891, collects and preserves documents, photos and other items relating to the history of the 30 municipalities in the county. It maintains a research library and archives for public use at its headquarters at 107 Winthrop St. in Augusta, and it sponsors free monthly historical lectures.
