An open house and reception to acknowledge the gift from former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky of his papers to the Iowa State University Library. The collection contains his Congressional and public service papers.

Congressman Mezvinsky's gift includes papers from the United States House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings.

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.
