Scope and Contents of the Materials

This series documents the Senator's political activities during his tenure in the Senate. As such, these files deal more directly with the Senator than those of the other series. Because of their non-legislative nature, these files contain little insight into the Senator's staff. The material is primarily concerned with his daily activities, meetings, correspondence, and issues of particular interest to him. Of the five series, the Personal/Political Files contain more of Senator Dole's personal views. The correspondence contained herein illuminates those whom Dole considered friends and allies, both within the Senate and without. Daily schedules and event invitations chronicle his comings and goings and the social circles in which he operated. In essence, the Personal/Political series describes Senator Dole's life as a U.S. Senator, but does not delve into the specifics of his work. They describe a man committed to building his party, and one who sought to use his influence to benefit his fellow Kansans and all Americans.

Series 7: Memos, Telephone Conversations, E-mails, 1976-1995Add to your cart.
This sub-series represents intra-office correspondence between the Senator and a few of his key assistants during a 19 year period of his career. Those staff members included here include legislative assistants Mo West and Alec Vachon, and office manager Jo-Anne Coe. Many of these memos are routine, dealing with internal office matters, photograph and interview requests, or speaking engagements. Others concern matters of legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, cerebral palsy research, education, and awards. These materials are similar to those found in the staff files for these individuals (Legislative Relations, sub-series 6: Legislative Assistants). It is not known why they were separated, though it likely because they are more of an informative nature, as a progress report, than strictly policy-oriented.
Arrangement: These files are arranged chronologically.
