Sample text

Although Stafford was a “good” Republican for most of his career, he fell out with the Reagan administration because of his strong support for environmental regulations and federal aid for education. The papers generated in these years, 1980–1986, while he was a committee chair, are the most voluminous and seem to be the most interesting. I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived for duty in July 1988, for I had processed a number of congressional collections already. The Stafford papers, like the Aiken and Prouty papers, were really the records of an organization rather than an individual, but for the first time I realized that these papers documented the activities of the staff more than those of the senator.

In addition, the Archives seeks to collect the papers of the Vermont legislature’s House speakers, because they have the ability to show legislative processes, such as the assignment of bills to committees and the marshalling of support for a particular bill.

In California, the bill files series is the most significant series in a legislator’s papers. A bill file is created for every piece of legislation a senator or assembly member introduces to the legislature. Bill files can contain committee and caucus analyses, amendments, governor’s letters, correspondence, support and opposition letters from interested parties and constituents, background information on the subject matter of the bill, legislative counsel opinions, notes, and newspaper clippings collected as the bill proceeded through the legislature.
