Rachel Field, Arthur Pederson, Cranberry Isles, 1935

Contributed by Great Cranberry Island Historical Society

This photograph of Rachel Lyman Field and her husband, Arthur Siegfried Pederson, is inscribed with a note from Field to her Cranberry Isles friend, Betty Eversman Hartley, "A coast of Maine greeting to you all from Rachel and Arthur Pederson 1935."

Rachel Lyman Field (1894-1942), novelist, poet, and artist, summered on the Cranberry Isles. Field's book, Hitty, Her First Hundred Years, about a wooden doll who wrote her own memoirs of adventures with Preble family children has its roots in the Preble House.

Field's book, God's Pocket, was based on the journals of Captain Samuel Hadlock Jr., an early 19th-century seafarer and traveling showman, who built the Preble House on Great Cranberry Island.
