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 consists of three subseries organized by format - cassette tapes, open-reel tapes and phonograph records. The contents are similar in that they consist of recordings of Muskie's speeches and other public remarks, including question-and-answer sessions, press conferences, radio and television interviews and news broadcasts, campaign spots for broadcast over radio or television, and congressional hearings. Almost all were made by Muskie's Senate or campaign staff for later reference. The recordings also contain a large number of audio press releases, called "beepers", prepared by Muskie's senate staff.

Most of the open-reel tapes were recorded in the 1960s, but that subseries also includes a wire recording of a 1954 Democratic program and a contemporaenous Republican television program, which includes remarks by Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Starting in 1968, the staff increasingly relied on cassette tapes. The cassette tapes include a recording from 1958 (originally recorded on an open-reel tape player, but donated to the archives on a cassette tape) in which Muskie shared an Old Orchard Beach stage with Louis Armstrong and Bette Davis. The cassette tapes also include brief journal entries from Muskie and several members of his staff.

Series Arrangement

The series is organized into the following subseries: A. Cassette Tapes, B. Open Reel Tapes, and C. Sound Discs.

Acquisitions Information

The Edmund S. Muskie Papers were deposited at Bates College in June 1980, when Muskie was named U.S. secretary of state. In 1985, several of Muskie's friends and former staff members, with assistance from the College, raised sufficient funds to support the renovation of the former women's gymnasium into the Edmund S. Muskie Archives building, which was dedicated in September of that year. Muskie's papers were formally donated to Bates College on April 23, 1986. Intellectual property rights in the unpublished writings of Edmund S. Muskie were given to the College in an addendum to the deed of gift signed December 8, 1989. The right to dispose of items from the collection was granted to the College by the Muskie heirs in 2007.

In 1994 and in 1996, Bates College received two shipments of records documenting Muskie's life since leaving public office which were maintained in his Washington, D.C. law office. A third accretion was received from the estate of Jane G. Muskie in 2005 and accessioned in 2006. Relatively small groups of files donated at various times by former Muskie staffers and others have also been integrated into the collection. Accession No.: 001-80-01, 001-86-01.
