Biographical/Historical note

George J. Mitchell was born on August 20, 1933, in Waterville, Maine, to Mary Saad, a factory worker, and George Mitchell, a laborer. Senator Mitchell spent his youth in Waterville. After receiving his bachelor's degree from Bowdoin College in 1954, he served as an officer in the U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps until 1956. In 1960 he earned a law degree from Georgetown University.

After serving as a trial lawyer in the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department for two years, he took a position as executive assistant to Senator Edmund Muskie from Maine, who became Mitchell's most important political mentor.

Although he returned to Maine from Washington, D.C., in 1965 to work for the private law firm of Jensen, Baird, Gardner and Henry, he remained active in politics by serving as the state chairman for the Maine Democratic Party from 1966 to 1968. He then held the post of Democratic national committeeman from Maine between 1969 and 1977. In 1968 and 1972 Mitchell also served as deputy director for Muskie's respective vice-presidential and presidential campaign bids. Mitchell himself made an unsuccessful run for governor of Maine in 1974.

In the 1970s he returned to public law practice, serving as a part-time assistant county attorney for Cumberland County while still working for the law firm of Jensen, Baird, Gardner and Henry. Mitchell accepted the post of U.S. attorney for the state of Maine in 1977. Two years later President Jimmy Carter appointed Mitchell a U.S. district court judge.

In 1980 Senator Muskie was appointed Secretary of State. The senator recommended to Governor Joseph Brennan that Mitchell be appointed to complete the remaining two years of his term. This was the beginning of Mitchell's fourteen-year career in the Senate. He won the election in his own right in 1982 and was reelected in 1988 by a record 81%.

Senator Mitchell served on the Finance Committee, the Environment and Public Works Committee, the Veterans Affairs Committee, the Governmental Affairs Committee, and the Senate Democratic Steering Committee. In 1980 Senator Mitchell worked with Senator William Cohen to achieve authorization of the settlement of the Maine Indian land claims. Other major legislation championed by Senator Mitchell included the first major acid rain bill, reauthorization of the Clean Air Act, an important transportation bill in 1991, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Superfund toxic cleanup legislation, campaign finance reform, and universal health care in 1994. (Visit Senate Career Highlights to read more about George Mitchell's work in the Senate.)

In late 1984 he was appointed chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and led the Democrats in gaining eleven seats and majority control of the Senate in 1986. Following this effort, Senator Mitchell was appointed to the Select Committee on the Iran-Contra Affair in 1987. Mitchell provided one of the most memorable moments of the hearing when he admonished Oliver North to "please remember, that it is possible for an American to disagree with you on aid to the Contras and still love God, and still love this country, just as much as you do. Although He is regularly asked to do so, God does not take sides in American politics."

His performance on the Iran-Contra Committee propelled Senator Mitchell into the national spotlight and helped him win the post of Senate majority leader a year later. In electing George Mitchell as their Senate leader, the Democrats were looking for "an effective, articulate national spokesman," said Democratic Senator Thomas Daschle of South Dakota, who would succeed him in the post in 1995, "someone who could frame issues and project what the new Senate is and ought to be."

In March 1994 George Mitchell said he would retire from the Senate at the end of his term. Within a month of his announcement, Justice Harry A. Blackmun announced his retirement from the Supreme Court. Senator Mitchell quickly became President Clinton's top choice to replace Justice Blackmun. In Senator Mitchell, Clinton would have a moderately liberal justice with experience as a legislator, judge and prosecutor who also had the skill to build consensus among the other justices. However, Senator Mitchell turned down the President's offer of the nomination because he wanted to focus his efforts on health care reform. Mitchell noted that "although it would be an honor to be considered for the court, I believe I can best serve by concentrating this year on health-care reform and the rest of the president's agenda for change."

Despite his retirement from the Senate, George Mitchell has remained active in international politics. In November 1995 President Clinton appointed him special advisor to the president of the United States and the secretary of state for economic initiatives in Ireland. The Mitchell Report, released on January 24, 1996, called for a phasing-out of guerilla weapons in Northern Ireland in addition to elections prior to the opening of peace talks. The report was lauded by both British and Irish governments, but the end of a 16-month ceasefire by the I.R.A. in February of 1996 delayed the peace process. Mitchell's mission was eventually completed on April 12, 1998, with the signing of a three-stranded multilateral peace agreement which was approved by public referendum on May 22, 1998. For his service in Northern Ireland Senator Mitchell received numerous awards and honors, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor that the U.S. Government can give; the Philadelphia Liberty Medal; the Truman Institute Peace Prize; the United Nations (UNESCO) Peace Prize; and the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) highest honor awarded to former student-atheletes, the Theodore Roosevelt Award.

In mid-October of 2000, at the request of President Clinton, Prime Minister Ehud Barak of Israel, and president of the Palestinian Council Yasser Arafat, Senator Mitchell agreed to serve as chairman of the Sharm el-Sheikh International Fact-Finding Committee. The goal of the committee was to examine the continuing crisis between the Israelis and the Palestinians, emphasizing, as stated by Senator Mitchell, the "strong belief that the violence between [the two parties] must be brought to an end." The committee released its report in May 2001.

In addition to his work as an international advisor, Senator Mitchell has also worked on a number of committees and boards both domestically and abroad. Upon leaving the Senate, Mitchell joined the Washington, D.C., law firm of Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPherson & Hand, which merged with Piper Rudnick in 2003. In 2005, Piper Rudnick joined with the British firm DLA to become DLA Piper, one of the world's largest law firms; Senator Mitchell served as Chairman of the Global Board until his resignation in 2009. He has also served as a director of the Walt Disney Company, Federal Express Corporation, Xerox Corporation, UNUM Provident Corporation, Casella Waste Systems, Inc., Unilever, Staples, Inc., and Starwood Hotels and Resorts. He also serves as the chancellor of Queen's University of Belfast and as president of the Economic Club of Washington, and recently was chairman of the International Crisis Group, a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of crises in international affairs, and chairman of the Special Commission investigating allegations of impropriety in the bidding process for the Olympic games. In December, 2001, Senator Mitchell accepted appointment as overseer of the American Red Cross Liberty Fund, which provides relief for September 11 attack victims and their families.

On March 30, 2006, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig, asked Senator Mitchell to lead an investigation into the illegal use of performing enhancing substances in Major League Baseball. Senator Mitchell delivered his report to the Commissioner on December 13, 2007.

President Barack Obama appointed Senator Mitchell as his special envoy for Palestinian-Israeli affairs on January 22, 2009, a position he held until his resignation on May 20, 2011. In June 2011 Senator Mitchell returned to DLA Piper as Chairman Emeritus.

On August 1, 2012, the NCAA appointed Senator Mitchell to a five year term as independent athletics integrity monitor for Penn State University's athletic program, with the charge to oversee Penn State's compliance with NCAA sanctions.

Senator Mitchell is the author of five books: Men of Zeal: A Candid Inside Story of the Iran-Contra Hearings (1988); World on Fire: Saving an Endangered Earth (1991); Not for America Alone: The Triumph of Democracy and the Fall of Communism (1997); Making Peace (1999); The Negotiator: A Memoir (2015)

 M202.2 Muskie Presidential Campaign, 1971-1972   2.75 linear feet

Background Note:

In 1962 George Mitchell began working for Senator Edmund S. Muskie as his executive assistant. He became deputy campaign manager for Muskie's bid to gain the Democratic Party's 1972 presidential nomination. Mitchell assisted in formulating and executing strategy. During that election year the Democratic party was reforming its convention rules, party platform, and policy statements in the wake of its disastrous 1968 convention in Chicago and other divisive events, such as the Vietnam War. The campaign faltered when Muskie, considered an early favorite, cried while angrily defending his wife from vicious attacks made in the Manchester Union-Leader, the only state-wide newspaper in New Hampshire. Although he won the New Hampshire primary, his margin of victory was lower than expected. George McGovern made an unexpectedly strong showing in the primary and from there took the front-runner's spot and eventually the nomination. Muskie remained Mitchell's close political mentor and friend until Muskie's death in 1996. After working on this campaign, Mitchell went on to mount his own campaign for governor of Maine in 1974.

Series Description:

Records were created in 1971 and 1972 during the course of campaign activities. Materials include administrative and planning files, scheduling notebooks, contribution and strategy information, and pro- and anti-Muskie pamphlets. Also included are campaign correspondence from several states and briefing books on New Hampshire and Rhode Island, Muskie's positions on various issues, delegate selection, and the Maine Democratic State Committee; as well as one on Richard Nixon. There is a complete listing of the Muskie campaign staff, led by Muskie's campaign manager, Berl Bernhard. Members of the Citizens for Muskie Committee included Sargent Shriver and Albert Gore, Senior. Several files contain material on the Democratic National Committee and the Policy Council.

Access Restrictions:

No Restrictions.

 M202.2.1 Briefing Books, 1971-1972   0.75 linear feet

Description:

Briefing books from 1971 and 1972 concern scheduling, delegate selection, political issues, and Richard Nixon. Briefing books are generally bound reports that summarize current information to be used by the candidate or staffer for quick reference. These contain Muskie's positions on various issues. He stood for provision of educational opportunities for low-income people, development of rural areas, protecting the consumer, protecting the environment (he co-sponsored the Clean Air Act of 1963); he wanted to end the military action in Vietnam; he worked for national health insurance, fair housing, and security for the elderly, and tax reform. Muskie's campaign staff and active members of the Maine Democratic Party are listed in these books.

 M202.3 Gubernatorial Campaign, 1973-1974   5.5 linear feet

Background Note:

George J. Mitchell announced his candidacy for the governorship of Maine on January 3, 1974. The theme for his campaign was "There are two Maines. There should only be one." He contended that Maine was a place where many people came to enjoy Maine's abundant natural resources but also a place where unemployment was above the national average and one in six families lived below the poverty level. The goal of his governorship would be to align the "two Maines" into one: a place with both a protected environment and a strong economy.

Mitchell captured the Democratic nomination for governor and was universally considered a strong candidate and expected to defeat the Republican candidate James Erwin. Both were upset in the election, however, by Independent James Longley; voter discontent was a significant factor in the outcome. Major issues of the campaign, as Mitchell saw them, were the economy and inflation, health care and elderly issues, energy concerns and oil prices, and the environment. These issues have continued as themes throughout Mitchell's career.

Mitchell attributed his loss to "distrust and cynicism about politics and politicians," "widespread concern over the economy", and "the fact that he [Longley] conducted a very excellent campaign." Mitchell continued his work in public service, becoming the U.S. Attorney from Maine in 1977 and taking over Muskie's Senate post in 1980.

Related Archival Materials:

Additional gubernatorial campaign files are located in series M202.4.2.

Series Description:

This series consists of subject files, briefing materials, news clippings, photos, and memorabilia which document the 1973 to 1974 gubernatorial campaign. Files were created to track campaign activities and to provide background information pertinent to the development of campaign positions that related to the development of the economy, the energy crisis, conservation of the environment, and medical care for the poor and elderly. Subject files contain issue-related background material, research notes and drafts for position papers that were released during the campaign. Correspondence with Senator Muskie, campaign advisors, and major local supporters is also included. The series also contains formal publicity and candid photographs. The local and national political and economic climate is clearly reflected in these records.

 M202.3.1 Position and Policy Papers, 1973-1974.   0.75 linear feet

Description:

Records in this series reflect the concise results of staff research in 1973 and 1974. They include briefing books on Republican candidate James Erwin's statements, voting record, and a contributors' list to Erwin's 1970 campaign for governor. Also included are Mitchell's press releases, statements, position papers, and notes on such issues as tax reform, energy, and fishing. Mitchell proposed such programs as establishment of a Maine Land Bank to protect Maine's public lands; development support for the fishing industry; establishment of a comprehensive energy policy; improvement of Maine's health care system; programs to assure financial accountability and cost analysis for governmental agencies; expanded adult education; and, most importantly, programs to ensure that "No Maine citizen should be forced to choose between a decent job and a decent place to live. In planning for Maine's future we must integrate economic and environmental objectives." These papers were developed from research material in the subject and campaign files.

 M202.5 U.S. Attorney and Federal Judgeship, 1977-1980   2.0 linear feet

Background Note:

George J. Mitchell was appointed United States Attorney for Maine by President Jimmy Carter in 1977. In 1979 Carter appointed Mitchell as a U.S. district court judge. Senator Muskie had recommended Mitchell for both positions. As a U.S. attorney, Mitchell prosecuted federal cases that took place in Maine. Mitchell became the first judge to take the seat of a newly created judgeship in the Maine federal court district to relieve the pressure of a growing backlog of federal court cases. This new judgeship was based in Bangor, Maine. As a federal judge, Mitchell presided over federal civil, criminal, and class action court cases. He resigned this position in 1980 to fill the U.S. Senate seat of Edmund Muskie, who had been named U.S. Secretary of State.

Series Description:

Materials include personal and financial records; personal correspondence--mostly congratulatory letters, and letters concerning federal jobs; applications and questionnaires for the district court judge position; notes and reports of mock trials at law school, seminars for new district judges, and press clips. Most of the material documents Mitchell's nomination process for district court judge, while some material covers his work and nomination as U.S. Attorney for Maine. Significant correspondents include Senators Edward Kennedy, Strom Thurmond, Edmund Muskie, William Cohen, Chief Justice Warren Burger, and President Jimmy Carter.

 M202.6 U.S. Senate, 1950-1994 [bulk 1980-1994]   988.5 linear feet

Background Note:

In May of 1980 Maine Governor Joseph Brennan appointed George Mitchell to fill Edmund S. Muskie's Senate seat, vacated when President Jimmy Carter appointed Muskie U.S. Secretary of State. In 1982, Mitchell won reelection with sixty-one percent of the vote. After the congressional elections in 1984 he was voted chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC). In 1986, during Mitchell's committee chairmanship, the Democrats won eleven seats and a majority in the Senate. In 1987 Mitchell was appointed a member of the Select Committee on Iran-Contra. Mitchell won his second reelection campaign with eighty-one percent of the vote in 1988. Mitchell's performance on the Iran-Contra committee and his success as DSCC chairman allowed him to develop a broad base of confidence and support from the Senate as a whole, and Senate Democrats in particular, in a relatively short period of time. This enabled him to capture his party's nomination for Senate majority leader. Mitchell also served as a member of the Finance Committee, the Environment and Public Works Committee, the Veterans' Affairs Committee, and the Governmental Affairs Committee. Visit Senate Career Highlights to read more about George Mitchell's work in the Senate.In early 1994 Mitchell announced that he would not run for another term after the completion of his second full term in January, 1995.

Mitchell's Senate office was organized in four basic functions: administrative operations; legislative activities; constituent services; and press and media activities.

 M202.6.1 Personal Activities, 1980-1994   66.5 linear feet

Background Note:

Senator Mitchell's administrative staff was responsible for coordinating and scheduling appointments, trips, and appearances; filing Mitchell's personal correspondence; maintaining records of phone calls; and receiving visitors and maintaining guestbooks. Legislative assistants wrote briefing material for the schedule books used at speaking engagements or other events.

The process of creating a workable schedule is an intricate series of tasks requiring a high level of planning and coordination. Senator Mitchell's personal schedule was generated from invitations received in personal correspondence and other sources. The main factor determining the Senator's availability was the Senate legislative schedule. Trips to Maine were also coordinated and implemented by field office personnel.

The administrative staff also maintained his personal political files. Mitchell was involved in supporting Democrats who ran for state office in Maine and his own re-election in 1982. After the 1984 general election Mitchell was elected chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and focused on coordinating national efforts to help elect Democratic candidates for the Senate. After becoming Senate Majority Leader in late 1988, Mitchell's appointment books and political activities were filled with speaking engagements and Democratic fundraiser appearances. Click here for a list of staff who worked for Mitchell during his Senate career.

Description:

Contains scheduling files, itineraries, briefing material, appointment books, phone logs, guestbooks, and personal correspondence between Mitchell and colleagues, and friends, from 1980 to 1994. The series also contains a subseries of political files reflecting political issues and events, with the greater volume accumulated during an election year. In 1985 Senator Mitchell was elected chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. This new responsibility resulted in an increase in political activities, particularly fundraising events.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

 M202.6.1.1 Scheduling Records, 1980-1994   35.0 linear feet

Background Note:

Description:

Files include briefing books and travel records with accepted invitations, appointment books, office schedules, and travel itineraries. The records are continuous from 1980 to 1994. Detailed information includes speaking topics; people present; the schedule and format of the event; logistical details such as directions, drivers, flight number, ticket purchase, accomodations; and side events such as private meetings with individuals.

Access Restrictions:

Scope and Contents note

These files contain daily schedules (transcribed by administrative staff) of meetings and events that Mitchell attended between 1988 and 1994. The itineraries listed whom Mitchell met, the subject of the meeting or occasion, and often the name of a staff member who probably advised Mitchell on the meeting's topic of discussion. The schedules focus primarily on his activities in the Senate and in Washington, D.C., although they do cover some events and meetings outside Washington.

Scope and Contents note

Administrative staff composed detailed itineraries of events and meetings Mitchell attended outside of the Senate, often including relevant contact names and phone numbers. When Senator Mitchell was elected majority leader in 1988, demands for his time became even more pressing. Consequently, every effort was made to arrange the itinerary efficiently and to predict where Senator Mitchell would be at any given moment. These itineraries cover events from January 1986 to December 1993. Many of the events and meetings occurred in Maine.

 M202.6.1.3 Political Files, 1980-1994   18.0 linear feet

Description:

This series contains personal records of Mitchell's political activities from 1980 to 1994. Files include briefing books, scheduling information, correspondence, memoranda, and listings. The volume of files increases at peaks of election cycles.

Boxes 76 to 80 contain briefing material and planning documents for election debates and events in Maine plus correspondence, memoranda, listings, and tally sheets concerning Mitchell's 1982 Senate election and Democratic campaigns for Maine state elections. These files were generally created between 1980 and 1984.

Boxes 81 to 85 contain files concerning Mitchell's work as Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman during 1985 and 1986. The bulk of the files involves aspects of the fundraising process: issue research; communication strategies; emergency funds to candidates; scheduling of events; memos and correspondence discussing the identification of crucial Senate races and earmarking of funds to those races; listings of major contributors, supporters, and organizers; communications with other fundraising Democrats; and overall strategies for gaining control of the Senate. They also include detailed records of money raised and spent by the campaign committee, such as filings with the Federal Election Commission. While files are generally arranged chronologically, some are arranged by senator and some by state.

Boxes 85 to 89 contain scheduling information and correspondence about fundraising events. These records were generally produced between 1990 and 1994 when Mitchell served as Senate majority leader. During the gap between the 1986 general election when he stepped down as Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman and 1990, the first election year that Mitchell was majority leader, there is a corresponding lull in his political files.

Boxes 89 to 91 are arranged strictly chronologically and contain briefing material for events occurring between 1990 and 1994. Background information on legislative initiatives and issues is interspersed throughout this subseries. Contains correspondence between notable Democratic figures such as Robert Byrd, Thomas Daschle, and Walter Mondale.

 M202.6.2 Legislative Records, 1977-1994 [ bulk 1980-1994]   500.0 linear feet

Background Note:

Senator Mitchell retained a staff of legislative aides throughout his career in the Senate from 1980 through 1994. Each legislative aide had one or more areas of expertise. Some worked for Mitchell as staff members on senate committees, the Democratic Policy Committee, or the Majority Leader's office, while others worked directly for his senate office in the Russell Building. Their work was organized following legislative subject areas, such as environmental pollution, and was generated from continuing legislative committee work.

Using background material and discussions with staffers and experts, the legislative aides drafted legislation and devised strategies to support legislation, resolutions, amendments, and other senate floor action. Aides acted as a filter for Mitchell, passing along only information they deemed important enough for Mitchell to take the time to read. Their work ensured that Mitchell was fully informed about the important facts of an issue and was aware of the status of legislation, various senate floor activities, and the plans of other senators, government agencies, the executive branch, and special interest groups. Aides also briefed the senator on the actions and goals of companies, associations, and individuals who were meeting with Mitchell and what they expected to achieve when meeting with him.

Aides wrote memos to Senator Mitchell condensing research into essential points and summarizing political activity on relevant legislation into concise points. The memos often suggested different strategies Mitchell could take. Memos were often handed back to the aide with a short note written by Mitchell directing the preferred course of action. In addition, the aides wrote speeches or statements, often for both sides of an issue. Mitchell worked closely with Democrats and Republicans to produce effective legislation, including Superfund legislation, Clean Air and Clean Water acts, the Affordable Housing act, the Civil Rights bill of 1991, Universal Health Care, and others.

Description:

Materials include memos; correspondence; notes; bills; and background information usually made up of press clippings, journal articles, and reports, letters and position papers generated by: the Congressional Research Service; congressional committees; a wide range of federal agencies and institutes; private research organizations, professional associations, special interest groups, and people prominent in their respective fields. Files in this series are generally organized by subject. Within many legislative subseries, files are arranged first by the staffer who created them, then by subject. Aides synthesized the background material into memos which allowed Mitchell to understand quickly the key points of a subject. The research was used to study and develop positions and policies that were either drafted or supported by the senator. Mitchell worked with both Democratic and Republican legislators, including: Senators Byrd, Dole, Cohen, Kennedy, Bentsen, Moynihan, Jeffords, Bradley, Pell, and Rockefeller, plus Representatives Gephardt, Foley, and many others. Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton are also widely represented in the legislative records.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

 M202.6.2.01 General Records, 1977-1994   31.0 linear feet

Background Note:

This group of files was collected and used by the legislative staff and is an accumulation of data for reference. The Mitchell staff tracked legislative accomplishments and voting records as an important part of their work. This collected information tells the history of the office through early legislative files, accomplishments, voting records, and memos.

Description:

This series spans the years 1977 through 1994 and contains voting records, descriptions of bills, summaries of the Mitchell office legislative accomplishments, and a collection of staff memos on all subjects from 1980 to 1983. Transitional material from the Muskie office is included here, along with some early legislative files. The collective information could be used to create press releases, year-end statements, campaign material, or serve as factual matter in speeches and discussions. It gives information of the overall mission and progress of the Mitchell office. Subjects include the environment, defense contracts, health care, the federal budget, and economic development.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

 M202.6.2.1.1 Muskie Transition Files, 1977-1980   4.0 linear feet

Description:

Files were created from 1977 through 1980; some were directly transferred from Senator Muskie's office and covered a wide range of subjects. Clean air and clean water legislation were prime subjects, as were environmental issues relating directly to Maine. Interfiled are some of Senator Mitchell's earliest files, showing the continuity of work between the two offices.

Description:

This series contains files created from 1980 through 1983. Interfiled material on housing, health, education, labor, and human services was maintained by Estelle Lavoie. The material reflects the development of legislative research and the definition of responsibilities in the early era of Mitchell's senate office. Legislation concerning housing, health, aid to families, and environmental problems was in progress at that time. By 1984, most areas of responsibility were clearly delineated and distributed among other aides.

 M202.6.2.1.3 Legislative Accomplishments and Alerts, 1986-1994   4.0 linear feet

Description:

The legislative accomplishments of Senator Mitchell's office were carefully documented and internally tracked from 1988 through 1994. Many legislative aides wrote a synopsis of accomplishments in a given subject area during a given session of Congress. The synopses contain supporting information such as press clippings, pages of the Congressional Record, and commentary. These background files provide a rich resource for understanding the continuity and depth of accomplishment achieved by the senate office. Also included are legislative alert packages filed by date from 1986 through 1989, which were created to inform field office staff of current legislative developments.

Arrangement:

Arranged by congressional session, then by staffer; also by date.

 M202.6.2.02 Environment, 1978-1994   68.0 linear feet

Background Note:

When George Mitchell was appointed to Edmund Muskie's senate seat in 1980, he continued Muskie's efforts to champion environmental legislation. Mitchell became known for his sponsorship of clean air, clean water, and Superfund legislation. A few Muskie staffers continued their work on environmental issues in Senator Mitchell's office.

Legislative aides researched information, advised the senator, and drafted legislation about various aspects of U.S. natural resources and the environment: use of land in forests and parks, energy resources, and environmental pollution. Legislation under consideration during Senator Mitchell's tenure included the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts and Superfund legislation.

The senate committee that processed this legislation was the Environment and Public Works Committee (of which Mitchell was a member). Many files created by Kate Kimball and Jeff Peterson remain with the E.P.W. Committee, because they worked directly for the committee. Federal agencies involved in implementing legislation included the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior.

Related Archival Materials:

The Muskie transition files also contain files on the interior and environment.

Description:

Files in this series span the years 1978 through 1994 and reflect extensive research about natural resources, the environment, and commercial development. Types of materials include background research, memos, correspondence, statistics, copies of bills, and reports from private and public sources. Separate but related subject areas within this subseries are environmental pollution and land use in forests and parks. Some files include material produced in Edmund Muskie's senate office.

Many of the Mitchell office legislative aides shared in this work: Kate Kimball, Jeff Peterson, Bob Davison, Martha Pope, Ann Tartre, and Deborah Cotter researched environmental pollution; Tom Gallagher, Jeff Nathanson, and Charlene Sturbitts worked on early pollution files; and Kate Kimball, Jeff Peterson, Bob Davison, and Martha Pope worked on pollution issues for Mitchell as staff members of the Environment and Public Works Committee (which retained its own files); Steve Hart, Martha Pope, Estelle Lavoie, and Deborah Cotter developed land use files. Some legislative aides did not strictly separate records on different subjects. Some land use and environmental pollution files are interfiled. In addition a few files on veterans, governmental affairs, energy, and agriculture are in this subseries.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

 M202.6.2.2.1 Environmental Pollution, 1978-1994   4.0 linear feet

Description:

Files were created from 1977 through 1980; some were directly transferred from Senator Muskie's office and covered a wide range of subjects. Clean air and clean water legislation were prime subjects, as were environmental issues relating directly to Maine. Interfiled are some of Senator Mitchell's earliest files, showing the continuity of work between the two offices.

Arrangement:

Arranged by subject.

Description:

Files in this series include memos, reports, notes, correspondence, copies of legislation, and books. These files focused on parks, especially the Acadia National Park in Maine and the issue of expanding its borders. In addition there are files about the preservation of historic landmarks and monuments, especially Maine lighthouses, and about forests, particularly ownership of the northern forests in Maine. Files about the forests and parks both contain some information about wildlife. Files also include some material on the Indian Land Claims settlement authorization, which Senator Mitchell helped negotiate in 1980 and which represents one of his first major senatorial accomplishments. Books on forestry and parks are also included. These files were maintained primarily by Steve Hart. Early files were maintained by Martha Pope and Estelle Lavoie; their files contain some material from Edmund Muskie's senate office. A small number of general files on forest, parks, and wildlife was maintained by Deborah Cotter.

Related Archival Materials:

Some agriculture files can be found in the Environment, series; files on the trade agreements can be found in the Trade series.

Description:

Materials include notes, memos, correspondence, and reports that range from general information on Maine's agricultural products (potatoes, blueberries, and wood products) to specific information on pesticides, food safety, feeding and child nutrition programs, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, commodity programs, and international trade agreements like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). These trade agreements were among the most controversial aspects of agricultural commerce during Mitchell's service as senator.

Also included are files on federal subsidy programs for sugar producers, bee keepers, and others. Agriculture legislation is usually considered by the senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee. These files were maintained by Steve Hart with contributions by Deborah Cotter. Some files were created by William Anderson.

Arrangement:

Arranged by subject.

Related Archival Materials:

Some files on Dickey-Lincoln hydroelectric project are mixed into the General Maine Defense, series and were maintained by Michael Hastings. Other files on LIHEAP can be found in the Family Support series.

Description:

Material includes memos, reports, notes, and correspondence. Major issues include the economic and environmental impact of different energy sources, including nuclear energy, oil, natural gas, hydroelectric, and tidal. Particular attention was given to taxes on oil and federal assistance programs such as Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), the purpose of which was to keep heating costs down for Maine citizens. Some files focus on the benefits and potential hazards of nuclear energy. This series also includes early records on the Dickey-Lincoln hydroelectric project. Energy legislation is usually considered by the senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The records were primarily created by Steve Hart, with some general files maintained by Deborah Cotter. Most of the early records on this subject were maintained by Grace Reef and Martha Pope.

Arrangement:

Arranged by subject.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

General Note:

Files of: Steve Hart are in boxes 169-173, 244-245; Grace Reef, box 174; Martha Pope, box 175; and Deborah Cotter, box 176.

 M202.6.2.05 Health Care, 1983-1994   57.5 linear feet

Background Note:

Senator Mitchell's office was involved with health care legislation throughout most of his Senate career, primarily from 1983 through 1994. Christine Williams, a legislative aide, was Mitchell's advisor on health care issues. With the support of other legislative aides and legislative fellows, she did research, advised the senator, and drafted legislation about various aspects of health care. Senator Mitchell primarily concerned himself with the economics of health care, particularly the cost of medical insurance and the federal entitlement programs, Medicare and Medicaid, whose rising costs during the 1980s and 1990s were of great concern to health care professionals, government officials, and the general public. Notable plans to reform the health care system included the 1987 catastrophic health care coverage proposal, the 1988 long-term care coverage bill, and President Clinton's reform bill of 1993. Senator Mitchell proposed his own reform bills, including the HealthAmerica bill of 1991 and a 1994 reform bill.

In addition to the economic aspects of health care, Mitchell was concerned with the nursing shortage and public policy issues such as fetal tissue research. One of the lasting effects of this research on health care issues was the contribution to the creation of the National Advisory Council for Health Care Policy, Research, and Evaluation, which provides advice and recommendations on priorities for a national health care agenda.

Health care reform was one of the most controversial and consuming legislative efforts of Mitchell's career. There was consensus among the public and legislators that the health care system needed repair, but lack of consensus about how to repair it. Accordingly, the legislative effort did not result in comprehensive legislation.

Related Archival Materials:

The Veterans' Affairs series contains files on health care benefits for veterans.

Description:

Files in this series were generated from 1983 through 1994. Most focus primarily on economic aspects of health care except for the Public Health series which focuses on public policy and ethics. Subjects include health care reforms; congressional budgets for the funding of federal health care programs; long-term care; public health; health care and the nursing shortage in Maine. Issues that emerged and were discussed during Mitchell's senate career include insurance coverage for uninsured poor and elderly, the streamlining of health care delivery, the sources of excessive health care costs, federal mandates versus marketplace incentives as tools to manage the health care system, and sources for funding federal benefits such as Medicare and Medicaid. Files also contain information on many national and local health care organizations and advocacy groups, including the: Small Business Legislative Council, the National Leadership Coalition for Health Care Reform, and the National Health Policy Forum. Files also contain correspondence with noted legislators such as Senator Kennedy and Representative Waxman, and health care professionals such as Senator Wofford.

Most of the files were maintained by Christine Williams. Some were created by Oliver Fein, Jeff Sanders, and Judy Wang. Some long-term care records were produced by Robert Crittendon. Some memos and correspondence were written by Steve Hart and Parashar Patel but were kept mostly by Christine Williams.

Because these series are interrelated, files on a particular subject may be found in more than one series. For example, files on how to pay for AIDS treatments may be found in the Medicare/Medicaid Programs, Health Care Budget, and Health Care Reform series; while files concerning AIDS prevention may be found in the Public Health series. In addition, some records relating to one series may simply be filed in another series. For example, files belonging in the Medicare/Medicaid Programs series might be found in the Long-Term Care series.

Access Restrictions:

No restrictions.

 M202.6.2.5.1 Health Care Reform, 1988-1994   20.5 linear feet

Description:

Files in this series were created from 1988 through 1994. Materials include memos, notes, correspondence, speeches, hearings, reports, press clippings, journal articles, bills, mark-up binders, and comparison charts of different pieces of legislation. Topics include various health care reform plans, including HealthAmerica, the Clinton health care reform plan of 1993, the Bush health reform plan of 1990, and Mitchell's own reform plan of 1994. In addition there are files concerning numerous amendments to these and other reform plans. Other topics include state reform plans, particularly in Oregon, Florida, and Vermont; universal coverage; medical coverage through Medicare and Medicaid and other medical insurance plans; coverage for drug and mental health treatments; and the effects of reform in Maine, especially on rural health care.

This series contains a section of correspondence from various corporations, insurance companies, and medical associations establishing their positions on various health care reform initiatives. A considerable portion is related to the Senate Finance Committee, and its subcommittees on Medicare and Long-Term Care and Health for Families and the Uninsured. Senator Mitchell sat on both of these subcommittees. Most transcripts are testimony given by Mitchell, other senators, government officials, health care professionals, and representatives of various corporations in the medical industry, including insurance companies, at hearings. Reports were usually generated from corporations, medical associations, research institutions, federal agencies and commissions (such as the Claude Pepper Commission) and from congressional committees, usually the Senate Finance Committee. Most of the files were maintained by Christine Williams. Some were maintained by Oliver Fein, Jeff Sanders, and Judy Wang. Files related to health care reform may also be found in the Medicare/Medicaid Programs, Health Care Budget, and Long-Term Care series.

Records in this series were generated from 1983 through 1994. Material types include notes, memos, reports, correspondence, and impact statements. Most document various aspects of the Medicare and Medicaid programs and their place in yearly budget proposals. As both programs, particularly Medicare, consume a substantial portion of the federal budget--in 1993 Medicare and Medicaid programs were expected to account for fifty percent of the growth in the federal deficit through 1998--many of the files in this series are about reducing the cost of these programs. Files on related budget issues can be found in the Health Care Budget series. Files in this series contain information relating to the specific features of health care coverage by Medicare and Medicaid: inpatient and outpatient hospital care, some nursing home care, home health care and hospice care information, physician services, outpatient hospital services, treatment for specific conditions such as end-stage renal disease, laboratory services, durable medical equipment, health screening services for children, physician services, prescription drug services, and others. Issues discussed are ways to maintain the quality of services delivered, strategies for reducing costs and their impacts, and the setting of eligibility levels. These files were maintained by Christine Williams. Files on Medicare and Medicaid may also be found in Health Care Reform, Health Care Budgets, and the Long-Term Care series.

Description:

Files in this series were created from 1985 through 1994. Materials include notes, memos, files from health care hearings, statistical studies, legislative proposals, and background information on many health care topics. Budget information relates to the funding of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Topics include managed care and other insurance plans and coverage options, disease prevention, lifestyles, individual diseases, health phenomena, treatments, technologies, and other subjects that have an effect on health care spending. All of these issues were examined in the context of producing a budget agreement between the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the White House. Records of previous proposals and budgets are sometimes in the files of later budgets. These files were maintained by Christine Williams. Files related to health care budgets are in the Health Care Reform and Medicare/Medicaid Programs series.
