In 1891, John Dunn dropped out of the University of Pennsylvania due to illness, ending a dream of a career in civil engineering.

To recover from illness and to regain stamina, Dunn traveled to Maine for the fresh air and rigors of the outdoors.

From 1885 to 1904, John Dunn spent weeks on end photographing, hunting and fishing around Ragged Lake, Roach Pond and Moosehead Lake.
