Take me to the archived exhibition.

The University of Delaware Library joins the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress to celebrate the first annual Congress Week, September 13-17, 2010. “Main Street to Capitol Hill” recognizes the American voices which are so richly documented in the personal papers of members of Congress found in archives and libraries across the country. Documents and photographs shown here are from three 20th-century congressional collections available for research at the University of Delaware Library: the personal papers of John J. Williams (U.S. Senate, 1947-1971); J. Allen Frear, Jr. (U.S. Senate, 1949-1961); and Thomas R. Carper (U.S. House of Representatives, 1983-1993).

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room from September 13-17, 2010.
