Biographical / Historical
The University of Maine at Farmington was established in 1864 as the State Normal School making it Maine’s first public institution of higher education. The College would go through a number of different name changes. In 1968, the Farmington State College became part of University of Maine System and in 1971 was renamed the University of Maine at Farmington.
Language of Materials
Physically the folders are arranged by subject. Some file names and dates were changed to make them more meaningful and to correct errors. Material was rehoused into archival quality storage. Originally the Other University Of Maine Campuses record groups were stored in their own individual boxes, but the processing archivists consolidated the materials into two boxes to allow for space savings.
The processing archivist appraised the records and destroyed duplicate copies of publications.
Accruals from the University of Maine at Farmington are not anticipated because they have their own library for storing such material.
Processed by Matthew Revitt and student worker Julia Haberstick July 2018, Raymond H. Fogler Library Special Collections Department. Processing involved a collection survey and intellectual arrangement into series and the creation of this finding aid. Material was rehoused into appropriate archival folders and the boxes and folders numbered and titled using information from ArchivesSpace.
