Record Group 8: Speech Files

1961-1974
Document Cases: RJL 8/1-3

Senator Lagomarsino's speech files are arranged by chronological and alpha order by sub-topic. Of special interest, are the weekly speeches or "radio reports" made by the Senator from a local private university, California Lutheran University. These speeches usually addressed a current public interest or topic or concern, such as mental health facilities, regulation of gambling and pornography, rise in crime, routing of freeways, the State budget woes, and youth drug use. The speeches also brought attention to California landmarks, as well as city celebrations and events. Overall, the speeches provide a significant amount of historical information; therefore, it is suggested that they be used in conjunction with the Issue files and Co-Sponsored Bill files.
