PPH reports “The newly created Governor Joseph E. Brennan Archives will be dedicated Wednesday evening during a ceremony at the Maine Irish Heritage Center, 34 Gray St., in Portland.
Brennan, 82, served as Maine’s 70th governor from 1979 to 1987.
Members of the Brennan Archives Committee have spent the past three years compiling more than 60 hours of filmed interviews with former staffers, colleagues, friends, family members, and state officials recalling Brennan’s long public service career.
The Brennan Archives will feature more than 144 television clips and stories about Brennan, digitized for the first time.
The archives will be stored at the Maine Irish Heritage Center, which is on the corner of Gray and State streets. They will be available to the public.
“We wanted scholars, researchers and visitors to the Archives to see and hear firsthand from those who worked with Governor Brennan what was accomplished from 1979 to 1987, how it was accomplished….”
“The interviews are fascinating and remind us of all that was accomplished during the Brennan years….” Read more HERE.
For the sake of fairness to the public…. A MOST POWERFUL, REVEALING VIDEO BY TOM DUNN should be included in these archives during Governor Brennan’s tenure as Governor. View video HERE.
