"An historical study of the origin and development of religious organizations in a two-city community, from its date of settlement to and including the Ecumenical year 1964." From the article in the February 1996 Newsletter of the Androscoggin Historical Society GENERAL RALPH B. SKINNER AUBURN'S HISTORIAN by Robert L. Taylor, "Ralph B. Skinner was born in Hartland in 1892 and resided in Auburn since boyhood. His newspaper career began with the Lewiston Evening Journal in 1911, and, except for interruption during World War I and immediately after, he was employed there as a newsman and special writer for 21 years. He served in both World Wars and in 1947 retired from the service with the rank of Brigadier General. He returned to journalism in 1950 as historical commentator and newsman at radio station WLAM in Lewiston. During his twenty years at WLAM, General Skinner produced a series of commentaries on local historical subjects entitled "Historically Speaking," for which transcripts for 1963-1970 can be found in the Androscoggin Historical Society files. As the author of two books, Historically Speaking on Lewiston-Auburn, Maine Churches and Auburn, 1869-1969: 100 Years a City, he was described as the man who "filled a void in the recorded history of our cities." General Skinner died on October 1, 1980, after six decades of work in preserving and interpreting the historic heritage of Androscoggin County. He was a member of the Maine Historical Society, Society of Sons of the Revolution, several military organizations, and an honorary director of the Androscoggin Historical Society.".
