Abstract: These are the papers of James K. Remich and his son Daniel Remich. They include a biographical sketch of Daniel Remich, lectures/speeches, and their legal documents.
Biography: James K. Remich founded The Weekly Visitor, a newspaper in Kennebunk in 1809. He was actively involved in the Maine Temperance Movement and the Temperance Movement in Washington in the 1830’s.
