The Congressional Reforms Archive
by Bruce Montgomery
September 24, 2010

In one of the Archives many collaborative efforts, we are currently working with Political Science Professor Scott Adler to develop a new project, The Congressional Reforms Archive. The goal of the collection is to put together the papers and documents of individuals who have been closely involved with reform efforts on Capitol Hill and make them available for researchers working on institution change in Congress. We are mainly focused on congressional staffers, policy advocates, think tank analysts, and the like.


So far we have received papers of two key congressional staffers, and we are close to having a commitment from other noted policy analysts at the Congressional Research Service. In addition, we are currently working with Congressional Quarterly (CQ) in Washington to digitize portions of the collection and link important documents with CQ coverage of historical periods of reform.

CU presidents had offices in Old Main, Macky, Regent
by David Hays
Silver & Gold Record, June 22, 2006

The University of Colorado president operated from his residence in Old Main on the Boulder campus and later from the President's House (now Koenig Alumni Center) until 1913, when the president's office was moved to Macky Auditorium. The office remained in Macky from 1913 to 1964, when it was moved into the newly constructed Regent Administrative Center. By the early 1960s, the University administration had grown far beyond the small offices in Macky. [Archivist David Hays worked on the System Administration Papers for eight years and processed the Presidents Office Papers, 1913-1991. The Archives holds the Presidents Office Papers, 1913-2000.]

When Allen Weinstein took the oath of office as the ninth archivist of the United States last month, he seemed to allude to the controversy that preceded his appointment and to hint -- perhaps unintentionally -- at the impossible position that any chief archivist now faces.
