A founding member of Maine Maritime Museum, over more than half a century Dr. Charles E. Burden has 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.

In recognition of the incredible contributions Charlie has made to create 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 of the generous gift you are making in his honor.
