Scope and Contents
The Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr. Congressional Papers document the Speaker's career in the U.S. House of Representatives. Much of the material was generated by the Speaker's staff, though O'Neill's personality is apparent throughout the collection. Politics at the highest level of government never overshadowed constituents' concerns. O'Neill's identification with the common man and his generous sense of humor are preserved in the papers.
