After a welcome by Dean Olivia Madison, remarks regarding the importance of congressional papers to research will be provided by Timothy Walch, director emeritus of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library, one of thirteen such libraries that are part of the National Archives and Records Administration.
The Mezvinsky papers will be the focus of an exhibit on display from October 17 through March 2014 in the Special Collections Reading Room.
*Federal regulations require that executive sessions records from the U.S. House Judiciary Committee during Watergate will not be opened until 2024.
