BAR HARBOR — Former Bar Harbor native LeRoy Dyer has just completed his first book, “BAH HAHBAH, Growing up in Bar Harbor in the 1940s and 1950s.”
In the book, Dyer recalls his childhood adventures in Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor waterfront, what it was like to caddy for the rich and famous, personal accounts of the devastating fire of 1947 and why growing up in old Bar Harbor enriched the lives of the author and so many others.
Dyer graduated from Bar Harbor High School in 1952 and Bowdoin College in 1956. After serving as an officer in the US Army, he played minor league baseball and then began an educational career that spanned 35 years, the last 30 of which was in educational administration. He and his wife, Joan, a former teacher, have been married for 56 years. They have three children and two grandchildren.
The book may be purchased from Sherman’s Bookstore in Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor.
