Digitized Materials

Eighteen photographs and eleven audio clips are available online in 'Fritz Hollings: In His Own Words,' a digital collection of writings, speeches, photographs, and audio files. The audio clips, from Hollings' last term in office, capture him at his verbal best on the Senate floor and in committee. The photographs, 1977 to 1991, are from committee meetings and hearings and press conferences. One such photo is above on page 1. Another is shown at right. Hollings sits surrounded by constituent mail at a 1986 press conference encouraging Congress to override President Reagan's veto of a textile bill.
