Topical Files


Topical files on various bills, issues, agencies and locales include correspondence, memoranda, publications and press releases, chiefly 1965-1972. Of particular interest are records, 1955-1972, relating to the governance of the District of Columbia. A brief history of the committee under McMillan’s chairmanship is entitled Legislation Relating to the District of Columbia from 1946-1972. The origins and form of government for the District are explained in the Legislative Calendar for 1972. Topical files also include records of public hearings before the South Carolina Congressional Delegation in the 1960s on topics including electricity and soil and water conservation. Extensive files of constituent correspondence regard opposition to the minimum wage bill of 1961.
