Collection Description Legislative files and Constituent Correspondence are arranged together starting with the 90th Congress, 1967-1968 (plus material from Dec. 1966), and ending with the 108th Congress, 2003-2004. Within each Congress, files are arranged alphabetically by topic, from abortion to commerce to foreign affairs to welfare. Constituent correspondence is the letters, emails, and faxes received by Hollings' Senate offices in Washington, D.C., and South Carolina on a wide range of topics. Legislative files are documents used or created by Hollings, his staff, and outside sources, and relating to legislation, the legislative process, the federal government, and South Carolina issues. By far, Legislative files and Constituent Correspondence make up the largest part of the Hollings Collection. For a description of selected key topics found within this series, please see Legislative Files and Constituent Correspondence Description, 1966-2004.
The "Hollings' Files" are arranged by topic and are the working files kept by Senator Hollings personally from 1981 to 2002. Taking up fifteen Boxes, they are retained here in their original order.
