Marking its 25th, Muskie Archives offers discussions on Earth Day, diversity

As Bates begins a yearlong celebration of the 25th anniversary of its Edmund S. Muskie Archives, panel discussions in May examine topics close to the late U.S. Sen. Muskie and to the college itself. Muskie ’36 was a Maine governor, U.S. senator and U.S. secretary of state whose achievements included landmark environmental legislation. The changing meanings of Earth Day are at issue in a panel discussion at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 6, in the Muskie Archives, 70 Campus Ave. A panel the following week explores issues around diversity at Bates, which was the first co-educational college in New England and was founded by abolitionists. A Diverse History — Race, Class and Gender at Bates College in the 19th Century. takes place at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 12, also in the archives.

Campus Construction Update: Week of March 22, 2010

Along with the spring crocuses, spray-painted lines, pastel plastic tape and little yellow flags dotted the soil this week to herald a season of new growth. But these manmade blossoms portend not the awakening of verdant nature but instead Bates’ latest major construction project. And the impending renovation of Hedge and Roger Williams halls became much more noticeable March 24 as workers started closing off their work site behind a chain-link fence.
