Dirksen, Everett McKinley (1896-1969). Papers
Newsletters: Congressional Front, 1933-46

From his first week in office in the House of Representatives through 1946, Congressman Everett Dirksen personally composed and typed weekly newsletters (while Congress was in session) to his constituents in central Illinois. Congressional Front, as it was called, covered the personalities, politics, and policies of Congress and the federal government.  By the end of the run, Dirksen had written 474 of these newsy reports.  The contents of the individual issues beginning with the March 18, 1933, edition are described in the finding aid to the Remarks and Releases series of the Dirksen Papers posted at
http://www.dirksencenter.org/guides_emd/RemarksReleases1930-69/intro.htm.
