Immediate Source of Acquisition
Marcus LiBrizzi, 2006
The materials all pertain to Atusville, an African-American community that lasted in Machias from the 1770s to the 1960s. These materials were collected as port of a Maine Humanities Council Grant, for which Pauleena MacDougall was the external evaluator. The records were intended to be housed here and at UM-Machias, but it is not clear if that happened.
