Legislative / Committee files, 1970 - 1985
- 1970 - 1985
Scope and Contents
During his leadership years O'Neill, always responsive to constituent concerns, received considerable correspondence on legislative proposals before Congressional committees. These letters came from state and local officials, businesses, institutions, and lobbyists in response to domestic and foreign issues that affected O'Neill's district, Massachusetts, and New England. The correspondence together with background material, brochures, reports, and news clippings reveal the dominant issues of that period. These files are arranged alphabetically by committee name.
