Craig Kingsbury Oral History

Craig Kingsbury | Skunks on the Island

The age old question: Did Craig Kingsbury bring the skunks to the Island? In an excerpt from a 1983 interview, Craig (1912-2002) gives his answer. A farmer, fisherman, aquatic biologist, breeder of exotic poultry, town selectman, landscaper, oxen driver, longshoreman, stonemason, naturalist, family man, and Jaws’ star, Craig was involved in and knowledgeable about most everything. Not to mention, he was an incredible teller of tales whose tales always kindled an interest in the nature of “truth”.
