This collection preserves the history of the African American communities in Maine by collecting material produced or collected by organizations and individuals. The collection was created when Gerald E. Talbot donated his papers and material about African Americans that he gathered throughout his life. Along with books and printed material in the Talbot Collection, there is a separate collection of books about African Americans in Maine.
