Penobscot Marine Museum names executive director

Posted on

The Penobscot Marine Museum in Maine named Elizabeth Lodge its executive director. Lodge succeeds finance director Matthew Timney, who has served as interim executive director since September.

Lodge, who joins the museum next week, previously was director of museum programs at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass., for 17 years.

She has a bachelor’s degree in history from the College of the Holy Cross and a graduate certificate in museum studies from Tufts University.

“I am honored to have been selected to lead Penobscot Marine Museum,” Lodge said in a statement. “I am eager to begin working with the board, staff and volunteers to continue expanding the museum’s influence throughout the Penobscot Bay region and Down East.”

Celebrating its 75th anniversary, Penobscot is Maine’s oldest maritime museum. It is home to one of New England’s largest displays of historic boats and outstanding collections of marine art, ship models and historic photography.

    As a new owner of a classic old Penobscot Boat Works vessel (a 1964, 17 ft Penbo utility), let me welcome you to your new position. Penobscot enjoys a revered name in maritime circles, which was what attracted me to purchase me own “Wood Work”.
    I am interested in reaching out to other Penbo owners of all size vessels, but particularly those in the 17 to 20 foot range. Very little information is currently available on-line, and it would be my hope that a combined effort by such owners could result in an exchange of owner-centric information for the benefit of all concerned. I hope you might be able to assist me in this endeavor.
