The present paper was undertaken in order that the compiler might gain a slight knowledge of Maine mammals and the literature pertaining to this branch of zoology. It was undertaken as a "major honors" course at the University of Maine for the school year of 1936-1937. It is possible that a perusal of this paper will reveal to others the striking scarcity of information on many of our mammalian forms. All the endemic forms known to have occurred in Maine within historic times are listed. Some of these forms are extirpated at the present time. Introduced species are not treated.
