Scope and Contents of the Materials

The lawmaking function of a Senator's office is perhaps the best known and the most thoroughly documented. The Legislative Relations series of the Dole Senate Papers covers this important function. Legislative records include a variety of materials such as Congressional Research Service reports, memoranda and correspondence, personal notes, published material, bill drafts, Senate committee proceedings, press materials, and other information. These various materials were maintained by the Senator's staff of legislative assistants. A full list of legislative assistants and their areas of topical expertise appears in the sub-series description for the Legislative Assistants Files. This series demonstrates the ways in which the Senator's office crafted legislation or responded to bills proposed in either the House or the Senate. Of significant importance are the Legislative Assistants Files. These contain information about nearly every political and legislative issue that came before the Senate from 1969-1996, and also show evidence of carry-over from Senator Dole's time in the House of Representatives. This sub-series contains information that may not be found elsewhere, and shows the often contradictory opinions of LAs in the same office.

Series 2: Committee Files, 1973-1994Add to your cart.
Records generated by Congressional committees are the property of the federal government, but Senator Dole's collection contains many committee-related records that were generated by his personal staff, which are cataloged here. Senator Dole served on several committees during his time in the Senate, most notably the Finance Committee (1973-1996), of which he was chairman from 1981-1983, and the Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee (1969-1996). Dole other committee assignments include: Judiciary (1979-1988) Public Works (1969-1972) Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs (1969-1978) Select Committee on Small Business (1969-1975) Budget (1975-1980) Joint Committee on Taxation (1979-1994) Rules and Administration (1981-1996) Labor and Human Resources (1989-1994) Certain legislative staff were solely assigned to monitor the activities of Senate committees. These include Pete Velde (Judiciary), Kim Wells (Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; Budget, Finance; Nutrition and Human Needs), and Richard Friedman (Finance). Committee files can include bill drafts and committee reports, correspondence between members, testimonies before committees, and information about controversial pieces of legislation such as the Food Stamp Reform Act, Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), and tax and bankruptcy reform.
Arrangement: All files have been assigned a folder heading corresponding to the committee to which the material relates. These are arranged alphabetically.
