Series Overview

*Note: This is a finding aid for part of the Edmund S. Muskie Papers. An overview of the entire collection is available here.*

This series comprises a variety ot document types, including correspondence, reports, agenda, and minutes related to the creation and management of Roosevelt Campobello International Park.

Much of the series is made up of packets sent to commission members for upcoming meetings. These packets contain minutes from previous meetings, agendas, and reports from officials on the park's programs, personnel, facilities, budget, and development plans.

The remainder of the series is mostly correspondence between Muskie and other commission members, park officials, private citizens and officials of other U.S. and Canadian government agencies.

In addition to the deliberations and actions of the commission, the files contain documentation on the management of the park, the upkeep of the visitors center and the Roosevelt summer home, publicity, budgetary matters, and policies and procedures concerning access to the park site and its personnel.

The series also contains several files on the proposed installation of an oil refinery in nearby Pittston, Maine, which became an object of considerable controversy in the late 1970s, and which some members of the commission feared might have an adverse impact on the park.

Series Arrangement

The series is arranged chronologically, with the exception of the Pittston Oil Refinery files, which span several years and are located at the end of the series.
