    • As told by Ellen Heymann.
      As a child of 5 or 6 Harry had a bad sledding accident, where he received a serious brain injury. As a result he suffered seizures. Medical people of those days though he was retarded. But infact just the oppisite was true. He was overly intelligent.
      The family had him placed in an institutioal facility. He escaped. He was then put into facility in Bangor. He escaped again with another inmate. They both tried to swim across the Penobscotriver, but both individuals drowned in the process.
      Ellen remembers meeting him once. He was wearing strange looking glasses and just stared at her.
      She also attended the funeral, where he was burried in the old cemetery section in Bangor.
