Great Falls Forum: Charles Micoleau on “Where has the Middle Ground Gone in The Partisan Politics of Today”
Past Event ....... September 16th, 2010 — 12 noon
Thursday, September 16, 12 noon, in Callahan Hall, Where has the Middle Ground Gone in the Partisan Politics of Today (lecture). Our Great Falls Forum series resumes with Charles Micoleau, a senior attorney with the Portland firm of Curtis Thaxter and the former chief-of-staff to U.S. Senator Edmund S. Muskie. Micoleau, who served as chief-of-staff for Muskie during his 1972 Presidential campaign, will draw on lessons learned from that campaign to reflect on the upcoming mid-term election for this year–especially looking at the sharp contrast in styles between Nixon and Muskie in the final days of the 1970 Congressional election campaigns.
The Great Falls Forum is a free public lecture series co-sponsored by Bates College, the Sun Journal and the Lewiston Public Library. Participants are encouraged to bring a brown-bag lunch. Lunches may be ordered through Guthries Cafe (376-3344) to be delivered to the Library.
The September Forum topic is tied to the 25th anniversary celebration of the Muskie Archives and Special Collections at Bates College. Since its founding, the Archives has played a vital role in preserving and promoting U. S. Senator and Secretary of State Edmund S. Muskie’s legacy of civic engagement and public service. For the past ten years, the Archives has also served as the repository of official records of the College, and during that time has amassed an unparalleled resource of documentary materials about the departments, people, and programs that make Bates such an extraordinary place to work and study.
