Series 1: Bill Bradley Personal Papers, 1960-1999
Collection Description & Creator Information
Bradley's papers document his career in the United States Senate and include project and issue files, copies of his speeches and testimony, press releases, his schedules and appointments, and awards he received. The papers also include the files of members of his legislative, administrative, and state office staff.
The order in which these records came to Princeton has been maintained.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
During the first round of processing, from 1999-2001, each file was reviewed and the following record types were discarded: newspaper and magazine clippings without markings; widely-available publications from the federal government, senate, lobbying groups, and political action committees; copies of bills and senate resolutions, unless marked; position papers; empty envelopes; copies and duplicates of materials already in the collection; empty files; and congressional record statements or introductions to amendments and bills.
