Biographical / Historical

In 1984, University of Maine President Arthur Johnson appointed a Promotion Committee to study the University's promotional activities. As part of its work the Committee assessed the number, purpose, and quality of publications produced across the University of Maine campus for off-campus distribution. A call went out from Doug Gelinas, Associate Dean, Life Sciences & Agriculture to University of Maine departments requesting copies of their publications for the Committee to review.
