Marion Krepcio Remembers Ellery Thompson - at the Custom House.
Marion Krepcio Remembers Ellery Thompson

Marion Krepcio recalls local legend: fisherman/author/artist Ellery Thompson (1899-1986).

Marion met Ellery Thompson in the late 1970s while she was working in a law office.

In his later years she helped Thompson organize his manuscripts and books and recalls, I would bring him his supper and he would tell me all these stories. He had such an adventurous spirit and knowledge of local history and he was indeed a character, but he was also a generally kind soul. As a writer, he documented his entire life. And how many people take the time to do that? And he did it well, for someone who never had an education. He was self-taught and an avid reader.(excerpt from 'The Day' http://www.theday.com/article/20160402/ENT02/160409947)
