Physical Description: 47.0 cubic feet (46 record center cartons and 4 archives boxes), 3.5 cubic feet of photographs (7 flat boxes, 3 archives boxes, and 2 card file boxes), 91 videorecordings, and 60 tape recordings (27 reel-to-reel and 33 cassettes) 
Scope and Content Note: Additions, 1960-1995, include campaign materials (1970-1994), clippings (1971-1992) and office files from Aspin's career in Congress as well as his tenure as Secretary of Defense under President Clinton. Some files were designated as Historical Files by Aspin's staff and remain a separate series. Also documented are the Aspin Procurement Institute (API) and Aspin's post-resignation activities. Included are family photographs, but the majority of photographs document Aspin's political career. The best photographic documentation of Aspin as Secretary of Defense can be found in the Secretary of Defense scrapbooks. Videotapes document campaign commercials, television appearances, and speeches. The audio portion includes extensive campaign radio spots as well as interviews.
