Record Group 13: Newspaper Article Files

1974-1992 (Congressional Terms: 94-102)
Document Cases: RJL 13/1-5

Congressman Lagomarsino's newspaper files consist solely of articles and editorials from California newspapers. They are arranged into series by chronological year and then, by general topic.

This collection of newspaper articles tackles the same or similar issues as can be found in the Legislative Issue Record Group and should be considered valuable supplementary material to Record Group 1. To political science followers, the Election series is essential, as it follows the Congressional elections of 1974, 1986, 1988, 1990, and 1992 through the eyes of California constituents, as well as the Press. In particular, this series addresses election personalities such as Gary Hart, Gloria Ochoa, Anita Ferguson, and Michael Huffington and such controversial issues as the redistricting of constituent political areas and candidate worthiness.
