The Central Atlantic Environment Center was established in 1967 as the Potomac Basin Center. Until it ceased operations in 1974, the Center collected, analyzed, and disseminated information on issues relating to natural resources. Its archives include correspondence, newsletters and news releases, annual reports, and court cases concerned primarily with protecting Maryland's resources from developers. Subjects and organizations documented in the collection include Maryland wetlands, the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Cove Point, the Potomac Sand and Gravel Co., Marriott's "Great America", and the Columbia Liquid Natural Gas Corporation.
