Biographical / Historical
The University of Maine at Fort Kent was founded on February 21, 1878 as the Madawaska Training School under the supervision of Vetal Cyr. In 1955 the name was changed to Fort Kent Normal School. The name would change three more times, beginning in 1961 to become Fort Kent State Teachers College and then Fort Kent State College. The institution changed its name to the University of Maine at Fort Kent in 1970 and is part of the University of Maine System. The University is an academic center for Acadian and French American culture and heritage.
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 Fort Kent are not anticipated because they have their own library for storing such material.
