Collection Overview

The University of Vermont (UVM) is a major repository for Vermont Congressional papers, holding the records of over 30 Members of Congress from 1791 to the present. The Congressional Papers collection will provide access to digitized content from these papers. The intent is to document selected aspects of the legislative history of Vermont's members of Congress. In particular, we look at issues that were important for a particular member as well as issues that have been important over time such as support for dairy farmers, water quality, and slavery.
