Mellie Dunham was born in 1853 in Norway, ME. When he was 12 years old, he traded some window frames for a pair of old fashioned snowshoes and filled them with rawhide. He began his own snowshoe business and his first employee was Walter Tubbs who later began a factory for hand crafted snowshoes which made Norway the snowshoe capital of the world. Mellie was also an accomplished fiddle player and attracted the attention of Henry Ford after winning a fiddle contest. He started playing for Mr. Ford and wrote several pieces of music. He died 09/27/1931.
