Former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell ’54, at the Maine State House January 28, 2014, for the unveiling of his official portrait, told those gathered that among the many awards and honors bestowed upon him through the years, the greatest were serving the people of Maine in the U.S. Senate, as a U.S. Attorney and  a U.S. District Judge. His portrait now hangs in the Hall of Flags with those of others considered to have made significant contributions to the state. Mitchell addressed a joint session of the Maine Legislature, talking about the path his career has taken and urging lawmakers to learn to listen in order to better work together.
