Robert F. Baldwin

Robert F. Baldwin (1934-2007) was a modern day troubadour, singing, playing the banjo and collecting and telling stories wherever he went. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, he attended 12 grade schools and the excitement of exploring new places stayed with him all his life. His articles and stories about the sea, the people who work on it, and the creatures that live in it have appeared in Sea Frontiers, Down East, Offshore, Maine Boats and Harbors and Yankee. His children's books include New England Whaler, This is the Sea That Feeds Us and Cities Through Time: Beijing. After living in Virginia, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Iowa, Bob and his wife Annabelle settled in Newcastle, Maine, where Bob first heard the story of the fish house door.
