2575 By Laura Finkel, May 1998, Orono, Maine. Copy of Laura Finkel’s 186 pp. typed M. A. thesis for the Department of History at the University of Maine, 1998. “This is Maine, Baby, Not Berkeley: Vietnam Era Protest at the University of Maine, 1964-1973.” From the introductory paragraphs: “This work looks at at the University of Maine, a relatively small, working-class school in a rural state to show similarities to and differences from the story of dissent portrayed in the extant literature. It is a community study which shows the significance of geography, culture, and community in the dissemination of a national movement.” Thesis is supported by numerous recorded interviews also on deposit at the Maine Folklife Center. Text: 186 pp. M.A. thesis.
