This is a selection of interviews from the larger Muskie Oral History Project focusing on Muskie's environmental work and legacy. Interviews were primarily conducted between 1998 and 2007 by Don Nicoll, Andrea L'Hommedieu, and other project staff as part of the Muskie Oral History Project, one of the largest and most comprehensive oral history projects ever undertaken of a modern political figure. Interviewees include Senator Muskie's childhood friends and acquaintances, college contemporaries, Maine legislators, political associates and competitors, reporters and editors, campaign supporters, gubernatorial and Senate office staff, Senate colleagues and committee staff members, public agency officials, lobbyists, State Department officials, foreign policy specialists, law practice associates, public policy advocates, citizens associated with Senator Muskie in a variety of programs, and friends. Opinions and topics vary broadly, collectively providing a multifaceted and nuanced picture of Muskie's contributions to Maine, to the United States, and to the world.
