Description: American author Kenneth Roberts (1885-1957) signed the article, “A Gentleman from Maine and Indiana” that he wrote for The Saturday Evening Post in 1931. He penned an inscription in green ink across a photo of “The Tarkington Boathouse and Ancient Coasting Schooner at Kennebunkport” that reads: “With the best wishes of Kenneth Roberts Kennebunkport, Me., August, 14, 1931”.

Kenneth Roberts, born in Kennebunk, ME, is best known for his historical novels, such as Arundel (1929), Northwest Passage (1937), and Oliver Wiswell (1940), though he first got his start as a journalist.
