Biographical / Historical
The University College of Bangor has gone through various name changes and is now known as the University of Maine at Augusta-Bangor, which is part of the University of Maine System. The South Campus was founded in 1968 as a campus for University of Maine at Orono located on the site of the former Dow Air Force Base. In 1969, the South Campus became the site of the newly formed Bangor Community College. By 1970, the College became known as the University of Maine at Bangor with its president reporting directly to the University of Maine at Orono president who at the time was Winthrop C. Libby. On July 1, 1974, the University of Maine at Bangor was renamed the Bangor Community College of the University of Maine at Orono. It provided a variety of two-year, certificate, and other short-term programs including in dentistry, business management, and human services. In 1995, the University College of Bangor became part of the University of Maine at Augusta and in 2011 was renamed the University of Maine at Augusta-Bangor.
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.
Immediate Source of Acquisition
Box 2 was transferred to Special Collections in 2006 from the Provost’s Office via Chris Hockensmith.
The processing archivist appraised the records and destroyed duplicate copies of publications.
Accruals from the University of Maine at Augusta Bangor Campus are not anticipated because they have their own library for storing such material.
Box 1 was processed by Matthew Revitt and student worker Julia Haberstick July 2018 and Box 2 by Matthew Revitt in February 2020, 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.
