MS Commerce and Transportation 1979-1996 73 boxes

Records in this subseries deal with commerce and transportation issues, and therefore cover subjects such as communications, highway safety, inland waterways, marine fisheries, maritime issues, and the regulation of interstate common carriers (including railroads, buses, trucks, vessels, pipelines, and civil aviation).
Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, issues concerning aviation, highways, maritime issues, and railroads were handled by Dale Gerry and Paulina Collins. David Wilby handled these issues during the latter part of the1990s. Fishery issues are very important in the state of Maine, and records about them were created by Michael Hastings, Timothy Woodcock, Jeffrey Kaelin, Katherine DeCoster, Eben Adams, and John Veroneau. Communications records were created by Jeff Minsky, Kelly Metcalf, Dale Gerry and Paulina Collins.

The files are organized into seven major groups, which are: a) General Records, b) Aviation, c) Communications, d) Fisheries, e) Highways, f) Maritime, and g) Railroads.

Access to some of the records in the Commerce and Transportation series is restricted. See information at sub-series level. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
