Biographical / Historical

Regular meetings of the faculty of the Maine State College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts appear to have begun in February 1873. Based on the meetings it appears that initially the group met to discuss academic and student affairs, including disciplinary issues. However, over time the meetings became an opportunity to discuss faculty benefits, retirement, and funding for research. The meetings were presided over by the president of the university.

In the minutes of the March 17, 1947, President Hauck "expressed hope that there could be created a Faculty Senate as a separate organization which might handle some matters now considered by the Committee on Administration". Following his presentation of the plan the faculty voted that a committee of seven be appointed to study the proposal with instructions to present a recommendation for consideration by the faculty at a later meeting. President Hauck appointed Professors Irwin B. Douglass, Weston S. Evans, Ernest D. Jackman, Spofford H. Kimball, Himy B. Kirshen, Winthrop C. Libby and J. Robert Smyth.
