Leon B. Strout (1869-1937), a Brunswick, Maine photographer, extensively chronicled local events. He began as an associate of A.O. Reed, a 19th century colleague well known locally, and later opened his own studio, which he maintained until his death. Strout also contracted to photograph the Poland Spring House and other Maine resorts for the Ricker family, and completed several assignments for the U.S. Government in post-World War I France.

The collections consists of more than 5,000 film and glass and plate negatives and 1,100 black and white prints, dating from 1918 to 1936. Interpositives and duplicated negatives of representative images are available to researchers thanks to funds provided by a Maine State Library Incentive Matching Grant for Conservation and Preservation of Unique State Historical and Library Research Material.
