Example text

Although Stafford was a “good” Republican for most of his career, he fell out with the Reagan administration because of his strong support for environmental regulations and federal aid for education. The papers generated in these years, 1980–1986, while he was a committee chair, are the most voluminous and seem to be the most interesting. I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived for duty in July 1988, for I had processed a number of congressional collections already.

Next to the senator, this person is probably the best candidate for oral history. The next single most important person in the Stafford office was the senator’s personal secretary because she was the conduit to the senator and A Repository Archivist on Capitol Hill 33 because she maintained all of his personal files, including financial disclosure statements, tax returns, appointments, invitations, annotated copies of speeches, photogpaphs, travel records, and memberships. Stafford’s secretary maintained the most extensive files in the office, and although most of these became part of the papers, she was the least forthcoming and the most protective member of the staff.
