Marshall Dodge (1935-1982) was a well-known Maine humorist. He and his associate, Robert Bryan, put out several defining albums of Maine humor, starting with Bert & I, released in 1958. In 1964 he and Noel Parmentel published (with accompanying LP record) a long-remembered parody of popular folk songs entitled Folk Songs for Conservatives.
During the early 70's he performed at various clubs around New England, Including Mystic, Ct.
In 1976, he founded the Maine Festival of the Arts at Bowdoin College. In a 1979 interview, Dodge claimed that his real love was philosophy, and that he was writing a book on the subject.
