Welcome to the Maine State Archives
The Maine State Archives recognizes National Women’s History Month and the ongoing contribution that women serving in public office have made throughout the years. This photo shows Margaret Chase Smith sitting with Governor John McKernan and former Governor and U.S. Senator Edmund Muskie (R-L). Smith was the first woman to represent Maine in either house of the United States Congress and the first woman to serve in both houses.
For more information/resources on Margaret Chase Smith, please visit the Maine State Library Maine Notables page dedicated to her.
