MYSTERY TUSK: Searching for Elephants in the Maine Woods with Gary Hoyle
Join us for History Hour via Zoom!
Gary Hoyle is an artist, historian, and past curator of the Maine Natural History Museum. He published his book Mystery Tusk: Searching for Elephants in the Maine Woods in the fall of 2022 about his journey to discover the origins of a tusk found in a yard in southern Maine. It was first thought to have possibly come from one of the early 19th century circuses that would tour the coast, which he then researched in depth. But the tusk was found to be much older, leading him to excavate the rest of the remains which became the first woolly mammoth found in Maine.
