Remembering Mary Cheyney Gould and Marcia Whitaker Chapman
The Bagaduce Music Lending Library mourns the recent passing of two exceptional women: Marcia Whitaker Chapman and Mary Cheyney Gould.
Both women were founders of the Bagaduce Music Lending Library. (A third founder, Fritz Jahoda, died in 2008.) These wonderful women were not just pillars of the Library, but also integral members of the Blue Hill, Maine music community and the regional croquet world.
