In Memory of:

 

            (5-13)  John Howard Ahlin, of Machias, a noted author, educator and historian.  Mr. Ahlin was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and graduated from Worcester schools.  He served for 4 years in the United States Coast Guard during World War II.  After the war, Mr. Ahlin studied at Clark University and Harvard University and received his bachelor of arts degree, his master's degree and his Ph.D. from Boston University.  He became a professor at both Emerson College and Wheelock College.  He married Marjorie Whiting in 1960, and the couple spent their first summer in Maine that year.  In 1976, the Ahlins made Machias, Maine their year-round home.  Mr. Ahlin is widely recognized as a driving force behind many enduring volunteer programs in Washington County.  He was a board member of Families United, Meals for Me and the Machias Valley Sportsmen's Club, and he was the director of Project Alert, a substance abuse prevention program for young people.  Internationally, in addition to years of work in Colombia, he was a visiting professor in Karlstad, Sweden, at the Center for Public Health Research and he taught at InterAmerican University in Puerto Rico.  Mr. Ahlin was an author of several books and was interested in local history.  In 1979, he and Norman Duzen started the first Senior Companion Program east of the Mississippi River, which eventually became part of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Service.  He remained director of this program until his retirement in 1994, with emeritus status from the University.  He was an active member of the Centre Street Congregational Church in Machias.  He will be greatly missed and long remembered by his loving family, his many friends and those whose lives he touched;
