Description: These interviews offer us the opportunity to view the Senate from the perspective of the parliamentarian advising the presiding officer, from the reporter recording floor debates, from the committee clerk watching the grilling of witnesses, and from financial clerks paying the bills. There are stories of Senate failures, but also untold stories of accomplishments not yet recognized by historians. Combined with the vast collection of congressional documents available, the rich archival sources of senatorial paper collections, and biographies and memoirs, these oral histories enrich the history of the United States Senate.
