Biographical/Historical Note

The Bureau for Research in Municipal Government was established at Bowdoin College in September, 1914, to train students in the use of primary source material relating to town and city governments, and to supply information to government officials, civic organizations, and citizens of Maine towns and cities. Orren Chalmer Hormell, Bowdoin Professor of Government, was the Bureau's founder, first director, and author of the bulk of the monographs in the Bureau's Municipal Research Series. The Bureau's library contained material dealing with state and local government and public administration. In September 1966 the Bureau for Research in Municipal Government and the Center for Economic Research merged to form the Public Affairs Research Center. With the merger, the Municipal Research Series was replaced by the Public Affairs Research Center's publication, Maine Business Indicators.


Scope and Content

This series contains the twenty-five monographs published by the Bureau for Research in Municipal Government between 1915 and 1964 on various aspects of state and local government in Maine. The monographs comprise the Bureau's Municipal Research Series, many of which are also issues of the Bowdoin College Bulletin.
