L. Rebecca Johnson Melvin

2010 Waldo Gifford Leland Award Winner!

The personal papers of former members of Congress, which constitute at least half of the documentation of the legislative branch of government, are held in more than 500 different institutions. An American Political Archives Reader performs the vital task of making these collections more accessible by presenting the best and most recent scholarship on congressional collections.The articles contained in this volume guide archivists through the challenges of dealing with these voluminous, complex collections. For institutions developing their political documentary resources and working toward greater accessibility of political archives, this book provides much needed information and is a welcome handbook on the appraisal and preservation of political collections.
