Mapping Maine: A conversation with Jamie Rice and Steve Bromage
An 1822 Circle Event
Recorded on July 30, 2020
In 2020, Maine Historical Society received a $341,935 National Endowment for the Humanities "Humanities Collections and Reference Resources" grant to digitize over 20,000 pages of manuscript materials, including incredible maps, and to develop an innovative model for providing online access with research discovery tools.
Using the Maine Memory Network as its platform, Beyond Borders: Mapping Maine and the American Northeast Boundary, 1625‐1893 will create online guides and full-text access to three of MHS' most significant collections: the Kennebec Proprietors, the Pejepscot Proprietors, and the Barclay Collection. Beyond Borders will digitally draw together primary resources, and tools that have traditionally been used only in academic spheres—including finding aids, collections databases, scholarly articles—and combine them with rich interpretive content designed for a broad public audience.
This was an exclusive 1822 Leadership Circle event.
