Legislative files,  1943-1962 [series]: (24.5 linear feet)

Biennial for the period covered, the Legislative Files files document Hoffman's work during a specific term of Congress. The files are arranged alphabetically by broad subject heading with sub-divisions where warranted. Consisting mainly of correspondence both with constituents and out-of-district citizens, these files reflect the concerns of Hoffman's correspondents on the issues of the day and the legislation pending before the House. The subjects covered most completely by these files are obviously those areas where Hoffman, because of his interest and committee membership, could claim some expertise. Such subjects include--but are not limited to --Agriculture, Labor, Military, Government Reorganization, and Executive Expenditures. The researcher should note especially files 1947-1948, relating to the legislative history of the Taft-Hartley Act, and the investigations made by a Hoffman-chaired subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee investigating strikes in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. There is also much material relating to an anti-racketeering subcommittee, 1953-1954, and to the various hearings it held (notably in Kansas City and Minneapolis). The researcher should be alerted to Hoffman's Committee files (boxes 81-88; described elsewhere) which overlap with the files in this Legislative series concerning Hoffman's committee work. Both files should be used for any legislative study.
