Charles E. Burden Collections Stewardship Fund

A founding member of Maine Maritime Museum, for more than 50 years, Charles discovered and contributed more artifacts, documents, and photographs to the museum's collection than anyone else. To many, the museum has become synonymous with the name of the long-time Bath pediatrician, who passed away on December 26, 2020, at the age of 87. In recognition of the incredible contributions Charlie made to grow this world-class collection, we have created the Charles E. Burden Collections Stewardship Fund. Your gift to this fund will ensure that important artifacts continue to be thoughtfully acquired, properly preserved, and widely shared through exhibits, research, publications and digital resources. We will notify Charlie's family of the generous gift you are making in his memory.
