Miscellaneous collection – Small manuscripts (MS 999)

The Library’s Miscellaneous collection – Small manuscripts includes a variety of materials relating to the history of Biddeford and environs, from colonial times to the modern era. The collection is a “catch-all” for the numerous single item and very small collections, which while important and informative, do not warrant their own singular collection. These materials include a large portion of the Library’s 18th century holdings, and are a rich source of local and regional historical material.

    How would I have access to the Mayor Clement Deschambault collection ?

    • Hi Daniel – normally you would just come in and request to look at it. Unfortunately we have yet to reopen to the public, and it may be some time before the special collections materials are going to be available for folks to access physically when we do. Is there a specific question I can help you out with or were you just hoping to look through the materials? It’s a very small collection – if there is something specific I can look up for you, I can probably scan it and send it over. You can email me at if you want to talk further about it. ~Renee
