In 1990, I shot and produced a feature story on fire towers for WCVB-TV Boston’s Chronicle program. It turned out it was the last season for Maine lookouts. I got to meet and interview the legendary Austin Wilkins and I found out that Henry Isenberg was looking to form a national group to preserve lookout history. The story is a glimpse back in time to very beginnings of the FFLA. I’m glad I had a chance to meet him and I hope this story helps to preserve his story. He was very passionate and worked very hard to make sure this history did not disappear.
