Ruth Huntington Storm (1888-1981) was a New York City schoolteacher who filmed friends, lovers, and places she visited from the mid-1930s until the mid-1960s with a 16mm Model K Cine Kodak. She spent many summers in Corea, Maine, where she had a cabin. In retirement she edited her Maine, Greater NY footage, & vacation footage

Corea has become a lively community of intellectuals & artists. Marsden Hartley is in residence & appears in this reel. Mabel & Ruth have bought adjoining lots on the water; Ruth is having a cabin built. Two local young women, Louise Z. Young and Miriam Colwell, have become warm friends with Ruth, Chennie, and Mabel.
After Mabel’s death, Ruth sold a parcel of Mabel’s land to the Lord family which features in this reel as do several summer neighbors, and Mimi and Chennie, now a couple. Wonderful footage of the Ellsworth Falls archaeological dig, too.
