The collection contains the personal papers of Harriet P. Henry, Maine’s first woman judge. They reflect her many civic activities as well as her expertise in the areas of marine law and the environment.
Harriet Putnam Henry was born in 1923 in Ashland, Kentucky. She graduated from Smith College in 1945 and earned a J.D. degree in 1954 from George Washington University School of Law. While in Washington, she worked as an economic analyst in the Office of the Quartermaster General from 1945 to 1946 and as a research analyst in the National Security Agency from 1946 to 1957. She came to Maine in 1958 and became active in many civic and charitable organizations. She worked to establish the Portland Housing Authority and served as its chair. She was also active in the Portland League of Women Voters, serving as its president from 1963 to 1965 and as chair of its tax committee during the campaign to establish a state income tax in Maine in the mid-1960’s.
In 1968 she became research director of a project launched under the Office of Sea Grant Programs and the University of Maine Law School to make a study of all Maine law affecting the state’s marine resources including fishery regulations, restriction on and use of estuaries, restrictions on industry, shore property zoning, and regulation and restriction of recreational activities. This project resulted in a four-volume study entitled Maine Law Affecting Marine Resources, published in 1969-1970. From 1970 to 1973, she served as a consultant to various public agencies on projects involving marine and environmental law and coastal zone management. These included the University of Maine Shoreland Zoning Project, the Penobscot River Study, and a project to establish a Maine coastal islands registry.
In 1973 Henry became Maine’s first woman judge, appointed by Governor Kenneth Curtis as Judge-at-Large in the Maine District Court. She became known as an advocate for women judges and served on the boards of the National Center for State Courts and the Women Judges’ Fund for Justice. She also served as the chair of the National Association of Women Judges Professional Leave Committee which sought to assure adequate provisions for maternity and paternity leave in order to increase judicial job satisfaction. She also became known for her work in the areas of child abuse and child welfare, serving as co-chair of the Children in the Courts Committee and chair of the Judicial Department Child Support Guidelines Advisory Committee and of the Advisory Committee on Child Support Rules. She retired from the District Court in 1990.
Judge Henry was a member of the Maine Governor’s Commission on Status of Women
and in 1972-1973 served as chair of the Joint Action Commission on University Goals and Direction at the University of Maine at Portland-Gorham. In 1990-1994, she served as chair of the Commission to Study the Future of Maine’s Courts. Additional civic activities include serving on the boards of the Maine Historical Society, the Maine Humanities Council, and Sweetser Children’s Services, and as a trustee of Westbrook College.
A recipient of many honors and awards, Harriet Henry received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Bowdoin College and from the University of Maine as well as the Maine Commission on Women’s Woman of the Year Award. In 1992 she received the Maryann Hartman Award from the University of Maine at Orono, given to women whose work provides inspiration to all women. In 2003 the Maine Humanities Council’s Center for the Book was named for Harriet P. Henry, a reflection of her long-time support for the Council and its activities.
Harriet Henry is married to Merton Henry, an attorney involved in many civic and philanthropic activities, and they are the parents of three children.
Scope and Content Note
The collection contains correspondence, research materials, notes for and drafts of writing projects, and records of civic and governmental committees and commissions, all reflecting Harriet Henry’s involvement in environmental, judicial and civic activities.
The collection is arranged in five series: I. General information, II. Environmental consulting projects, III. Judicial activities, IV. Civic activities, and V. Additions to the collection. Series II, IV and V are further divided into several sub-series.
Series I contains general information about Harriet Henry, including resumes, photographs, newspaper clippings about her activities, and personal correspondence to her about her many civic efforts.
Series II is further subdivided into four sub-series: 1. Research for Maine Law Affecting Marine Resources, 2. Environmental consulting projects, 3. Environmental conferences, and 4. Environmental research materials. Materials in this series give a good overview of environmental activities in the state of Maine in the 1970’s and reflect efforts to describe and codify laws affecting the marine environment. The largest group is materials gathered in the process of compiling the book, Maine Law Affecting Marine Resources.
Series III is concerned with Judge Henry’s work with various judicial organizations and also contains notes from several judicial conferences. It contains no records of her work as a District Court judge.
Series IV is subdivided into four sub-series: 1. General, 2. Records of the League of Women Voters of Portland, 3. Records of the Joint Action Commission on University Goals and Direction at the University of Maine at Portland-Gorham , and 4. Records of the Commission to Study the Future of Maine’s Courts. The general sub-series contains correspondence, meeting minutes, reports, newspaper clippings, etc., reflecting the many organizations with which Judge Henry was involved from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. Of particular interest are her files from the League of Women Voters documenting her activities as chair of the League committee which supported the introduction of the state income tax in the 1960’s. Also included are files concerning the celebration of the League’s 50th anniversary in 1970. The sub-series documenting her work with the two commissions contain reports, notes, drafts of speeches, and publications of the groups.
Series V contains material added to the collection after it was initially processed. It includes many of the same types of documents as the first four series and is arranged in the same order as those series. Correspondence and judicial materials are most prevalent in this series.
A list of published materials separated from the collection can be found at the end of this finding aid.
