The University of Maine began offering a pulp and paper in 1912-1913 under Dr. Ralph H. McKee making it the first program in the United States. In 1949, University of Maine pulp and paper alumni and paper company executives met with representatives from UMaine to discuss the need for more and better trained workers in the pulp and paper industry. The result of this meeting was the establishment in 1950 of the University of Maine Pulp & Paper Foundation.

The records include annual meeting minutes, bylaws, goals and missions, conference and event publicity material and programs, papers on the pulp and paper history and the history of the Foundation, newspaper clippings, copies of Foundation publications, and scholarship information.
