Biographical / Historical
The University of Maine at Brunswick Campus was located at the Naval Air Station in Brunswick, Maine. The Campus was established as an annex to accommodate an increasing number of University of Maine students who the Orono campus struggled to support. In 1946, the Class of 1950 became the first class to use the Campus, with all the students war veterans. In 1949, the Campus closed.
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 Brunswick Campus are not anticipated because the Campus is no longer in existence.
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.
