Library of Congress, Prints and
Photographs Division

Actress Maxine Elliott was a legend in her day. Extensive documentation of her life (18681940) in such forms as scrapbooks, photographs and theater playbills is preserved for posterity in Raymond H. Fogler Library's Special Collections at the University of Maine.

Hers is one of nearly 1,200 collections archived at UMaine, putting researchers in touch with original materials that offer eyewitness accounts of history in the making. A story about UMaine's Special Collections begins on page 2.
