The legislative papers include a substantial number of publications of state agencies, e.g., annual reports, reports of legislative study commissions, Virginia Advisory Legislative Council reports, copies of bills and legislative correspondence. The correspondence consists of constituent letters, correspondence with officials of Tidewater area local governments and professional organizations.
The State Water Control Board files are not the official records of the board. They include Mr. McNamara's correspondence as a member of the board, staff communications, staff activities reports, letter ballots, minutes of meetings, publications distributed to members of the board and newspaper clippings related to the activities of the board.
The political papers consist of some correspondence, publications, clippings and briefs in the Virginia reapportionment cases. The speech file is principally political speeches from 1967 to 1973. The last two boxes in the collection consist of newspaper clippings.
