Abstract/ Summary

Documentation of the University of Maine Board of Trustees "Statement of Resolution" approved and adopted on January 23, 1974. "Recognizing that many citizens have differing views on the matter of who and which groups should have an opportunity to meet on our University campuses, the Board of Trustees reaffirms the previous policy as approved in 1967 and 1969 of open campuses and the greatest amount of freedom of speech and of dissemination of ideas. Accordingly, we see no reason to deny any student group the right to meet on our University campuses for lawful purposes or in accordance with University policy."


Captured from the files of the University Archives by student intern Madison Riley. Libraries and archives collect materials from different cultures and time periods to preserve and make available the historical record. As a result, library materials, such as those presented here, may reflect racist and homophobic views that may be harmful and difficult to view.
