L.L. Bean's grandson is conserving an island that the late outdoorsman used for hunting.
Back in the days before Gap, J. Crew or American Outfitters, there were guys like L.L. Bean.
"The important part of L.L. was his personality. He was a hardy, enthusiastic, outgoing guy. He shouted most of his conversations because he was hard of hearing and assumed everyone else was, too," said his grandson, Leon Gorman, chairman of the board.
As Mr. Gorman said, "He liked what he sold, and he sold what he liked," so his catalog carried oddball items like Underwood Deviled Ham, horseshoes, and pipes and pipe tobacco.
