Gaylord Nelson Papers, 1954-2006 (bulk 1963-1980)

 
Contents List
Container Title
Subseries: Bechtel, William
Scope and Content Note: Bill Bechtel served as an administrative assistant from 1964 to 1969. The material found in this subseries was identified in the original inventory as either legislative correspondence or legislation for the 88th Congress (1963-1964), but some files extend beyond 1964. None of the material was identified as Bechtel's, but evidence of his involvement is represented in the files along with other staff members. Since the office's early filing system was incongruent with succeeding systems and distinction between types of files was not clear, the files identified as 88th Congress were brought together as a central file under Bechtel. Many of the files are clearly correspondence files and others subject files, but no attempt was made to organize them as such; all files are listed alphabetically. The material created and compiled by various staff members documents a wide range of subjects for the years 1963-1968 and related material can be found under Gar Alperovitz, Roger Blobaum, William Spring, Tom Bennett, and William Cherkasky. Bechtel's administrative files are listed under OFFICE MANAGEMENT. Legislative correspondence from 1965 onward is filed in the CONSTITUENT SERVICES series.
