MS News clippings 1973-1996 53 boxes

Arranged chronologically by year, and then by month. From 1979-1985, articles about Cohen that appeared in Maine newspapers and some national publications were collected and systematically maintained by Cohen's press secretaries and their assistants. During 1979 and from 1983-1985, daily summaries of these news items were also compiled and filed with the clippings. Some of the newspapers represented are Bangor Daily News, Portland Press Herald, Brunswick Times-Record, Lewiston Daily Sun, and Kennebec Journal. Some of the national publications included are the New York Times, Business Week, and the Wall St. Journal. Most of the clippings mention either Cohen, his colleagues, his campaign opponents, or Maine state representatives. After 1985, news items were collected less consistently due to their availability in electronic formats. Some clippings about Cohen from 1985-1996 are included in this series, as are magazine articles and bound copies of news articles about him and editorials written by him from 1973-1996.
