Staff files,  1959-1976 [series]: (20 linear ft.)

The Staff Files (1959-1976; 20 linear ft.) were maintained by Hart's staff (except for the Press Office which is a separate series). Because of the complexity of legislative issues and constituent concerns, Hart had a staff of 7-10 people with another dozen or so working with the thousands of letters received each week and on other clerical tasks. This series consists of the files of many of the senior Hart staff, those with specific legislative or administrative responsibilities. Included are Hart's first administrative assistant, William B. Welch, his legislative counsel Donald F. Tucker, special assistant John M. (Jack) Cornman, legislative assistant Muriel Ferris among others. A complete list of individuals with papers in the Hart papers will be found in the Summary Contents List. A partial listing of all Hart staff members together with area of responsibility will be found in the Biographical/Personal series (box 1; folder, "Hart staff miscellanea/assignments").

Because Hart relied so heavily on his staff, this series documents those issues and pieces of legislation about which Hart was most concerned. Included here are memoranda between Hart and his staff about the drafting of legislation and the strategy to be used in reaching a consensus so that any given bill might become law. Worthy of special mention is a subseries composed of the working files of various staff members. Arranged alphabetically, this subseries consists of memoranda, reports, and documents arranged topically. Large portions of this subseries relate to the amnesty issue, the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Pictures Rocks national parks legislation, the debate over control of automobile emissions, and the Seafarer/Sanguine project. An important part of this subseries is files of memoranda arranged chronologically on legislation and other public policy issues.
