Remich Family Papers (MS 3)

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.

Daniel Remich was the son of James, and like his father was very involved in the Temperance Movement in Maine. Before he could go to college, he became partially blind and instead helped his father with his bookshop and newspaper before eventually taking them over.
