Biography

The collection contains the personal papers and business records of Roscoe C. Emery, a politician, newspaper editor, and real estate and insurance agent from Eastport, Maine. Emery was also an active promoter of the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Development Project.

Roscoe Emery was born on a farm in Eastport in 1886, the youngest of eleven children of Oliver and Josephine Holmes Emery. He was involved in the sardine and papermaking industries as a day worker while still in school. He graduated from Boynton High School in Eastport in 1903 and from Colby College in 1907. While at Colby he participated in numerous student activities and was elected to membership in Phi Beta Kappa. After college he taught at Lubec High School and later was principal of the high school in Waterville, Maine. He returned to Eastport in 1911, forming Emery Brothers, a partnership with his brothers William and Robert. The brothers sold fish of all kinds, especially herring, as well as grain, groceries, tobacco, candy and gasoline. Roscoe Emery also owned a weir in Eastport.

In 1914, Emery purchased the Eastport Sentinel, a newspaper first published in 1818. He was the editor until he sold the paper in 1946. It ceased publication in 1953. He also owned the Sentinel Agency, a real estate and insurance business in Eastport. He sold the insurance business in 1964 but continued to sell real estate until his death in 1969.

Emery was active in Republican politics in Maine, serving as a member of the Maine Senate from 1920 to 1924, and as mayor of Eastport from 1928 to 1932 and from 1934 to 1936. In both 1940 and 1951 he unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Representative to Congress from the Third Maine District.

A great booster of Eastport and Washington County, he helped found the Washington County Chamber of Commerce in 1938. Through the years, he served as publicity chairman, corresponding secretary, executive secretary, and president before resigning from office in 1969. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias for over 50 years, serving as Grand Chancellor in 1933. He was also a member of the Elks and Knights Templar.

In the 1930’s, he became very active in the drive which brought about the approval and start of the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Development Project, designed to use the high range of tides in the vicinity of Passamaquoddy Bay to generate electric power. Both Passamaquoddy Bay, located partly in Canada, and Cobscook Bay, located totally within the boundaries of the United States, were to be included in the project, giving it an international tenor. A series of dams, filling gates and a navigation lock plus a power plant were planned. In 1935 the U.S. government appropriated $7,000,000 for the project out of an estimated cost of between $37,000,000 to $38,000,000. Quoddy Village, built in 1935-1936, was to provide housing for workers on the project; it and two small dams were the only structures actually built. Emery and other residents of Washington County continued to push for completion of the project at every opportunity, seeking to revive it as an international project on a larger scale than originally planned. The project was finally abandoned in the 1970’s.

Roscoe Emery and his wife, Vera Leonard Emery, had two children, Walter L. Emery and Joyce Emery Kinney, an Eastport historian and author.

Roscoe Emery died on December 14, 1969.

Scope and Content Note

The collection is divided into two series:

I. Personal papers and
II. Business records.

Series I is further divided into seven sub-series:

1. General civic correspondence;
2. Civic subject files;
3. Knights of Pythias;
4. Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Development Project;
5. Political papers;
6. Records of Washington County Chamber of Commerce; and
7. Family papers.

Series II includes records of the Eastport Sentinel and records of the Sentinel Agency.

The papers had been re-foldered sometime after their arrival at the Library. Folder headings used here are those assigned during that project but the order was imposed by the processing archivist.

General civic correspondence and civic subject files primarily document Roscoe Emery’s activities in promoting economic development in Eastport and Washington County. Included also are some materials from his service as the mayor of Eastport.

Correspondence from his membership in the Knights of Pythias, a fraternal organization founded in 1864 “to promote friendship among men and to relieve suffering,” outlines activities of the group, its past chancellors, and its relief fund.

The materials documenting Emery’s involvement with the Passamaquoddy Tidal Power Development Project range from 1924 to the 1960’s. The correspondence, arranged chronologically, includes that with many political figures, outlining Emery’s attempts to move this project forward. The subject files maintained by Emery are arranged by topic and include several scrapbooks of clippings he kept through his many years of work on the project.

Roscoe Emery corresponded throughout his career with many political figures in Maine and nation-wide. This correspondence is arranged alphabetically in Sub-series 5 and includes letters from various Maine governors and members of Congress. One of the most frequent correspondents was Ralph Owen Brewster, a Maine governor, member of Congress and U.S. Senator. Other correspondents included William Hathaway, Edmund Muskie, and Margaret Chase Smith. This sub-series also contains some material about Emery’s own political campaigns and a scrapbook of clippings about his unsuccessful campaign for Congress in 1940.

Records of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce include correspondence from the 1930’s to 1969, as well as membership information and files and press releases on activities of the group.

Family papers include essays and memorabilia from Emery’s studies at Colby College, family correspondence, and a collection of photographs of Emery and other family members. Included here are correspondence and business records from the 1830’s through the 1890’s from residents of Dennysville, Maine, and other Washington County communities. The family names Kilby and Lincoln are prominent in these papers. Their relation to Roscoe Emery is unclear.

Series II, Business records, contains a small amount of financial information about Emery Brothers from 1912-1914, as well as information about the Emery weir. A second part of the series concerns the Eastport Sentinel and contains correspondence and financial information as well as the last issue of the paper published during Emery’s time as owner and the last issue of the paper ever published.

The records of the insurance business conducted by the Sentinel Agency include correspondence, copies of insurance policies, and reports of business conducted with various insurance companies. The records documenting the real estate business of the agency contain primarily individual client files with descriptions and photographs of properties for sale, mainly in Washington County, as well as correspondence with sellers and potential buyers.
