FOREWORD

It is hoped that the following collection of historical vignettes, photographs and lists of graduates will provide old friends and new acquaintances of the University of Maine at Fort Kent with an appreciation for those people and events that have enabled our institution to reach its hundredth birthday. This volume is not designed to be a formal history of the Fort Kent campus. Rather, this is an unabashed attempt to convey, through the words and observations of those involved, the reasons why people even today, especially the Alumni, speak fondly of the "Training School." Special thanks go to Mrs. Lucille Pelletier, Chairman of the Centennial Committee, Miss Michele Corey, Miss Patricia Pelletier, Noella Michaud, Cyrilla Picard, and Mr. Barry Stokes for their cooperation.

R. Grindle,
on behalf of the Committee
