In 1970 the Allagash Wilderness Waterway became America’s first federally protected-state managed Wild river. In 1961 United States Secretary of the Interior Stewart L. Udall had commissioned this proposal. This proposal and actions in the Maine Legislature aided in compelling the citizens of Maine to vote in 1966 to protect the river by authorizing a $1.5 million bond.
