Biographical / Historical
The University of Maine at Machias is located in Machias, Washington County. The University was established as the Washington State Normal School by the 1909 Maine Legislature and opened in September 1910. In 1951, the College became the Washington State Teachers College and in 1965 was renamed again to the Washington State College. In 1968, the College became part of the University of Maine System and in 1970 its name was changed to the University of Maine at Machias. In 2017, a Primary Partnership agreement was reached between the University of Maine at Machias and University of Maine. The One University partnership changed the leadership at the University of Maine Machias from a president and academic provost to an executive dean/chief academic and operations officer and director of academic support services. The University of Maine president is president of both campuses.
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 Machias 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.
