Theodore Williston

Theodore Williston

Theodore Williston may be older than he once was, but hasn’t slowed down one bit. He still spits wood, fishes and maintains his garden. He also teaches local students about the Escuminac Disaster, providing a first hand account of that fateful night in 1959. Unlike those who didn’t dare return to the sea, Theodore went on to make a good living fishing a variety of fish and shellfish, before devoting his time to fishing smelts with his sons and grandson.
