The records contain textual information created and curated by University of Maine professor and administrator Thomas (Tom) D. Aceto. The records were transferred by Charles Rauch, Jr., Vice-President for Business and Finance and likely only represent a small subset of the records created by Aceto deemed worthy of retaining by Rauch. The record group contains details of the relationship between the Bangor Symphony Orchestra and the University of Maine, including correspondence and agreements. Also found in the record group are correspondence, agreements, financial, operations and staffing, and collection information regarding the Hudson Museum, Maine Center for the Arts, and University of Maine Press.
