Library to pay tribute to William S. Cohen

BANGOR – The Bangor Public Library will host a traveling exhibit based on the William S. Cohen papers from Dec. 6 to Jan. 31, 2007, in the Reading Room.

The exhibit, titled “Cohen, Congress and Controversy: Rediscovering Civics in the Archives,” uses facsimiles of photographs, handwritten notes, speeches and campaign memorabilia from Cohen, who served in the U.S. House and Senate and later as U.S. secretary of defense.

The exhibit comes from the Raymond H. Fogler Library at the University of Maine. Cohen donated his political papers to UM in 1996. He added a selection of Department of Defense material in 2001.
