John Brademas Congressional Papers

John Brademas, August 11, 1969

The John Brademas Congressional Papers document the career of John Brademas as a U.S. Congressional Representative from Indiana's Third District from 1959 to 1981. Brademas served on the Committee on Education and Labor throughout his tenure and became a leading force in the creation of legislation concerning education, arts and humanities, vocational rehabilitation, services for the elderly and handicapped, and libraries and museums. The collection includes documents related to the administrative, legislative, and political functions of his office.

In 2001, as President Emeritus of NYU, Brademas donated his congressional papers, measuring nearly 500 linear feet, to the University Archives. The collection will serve as the cornerstone for a congressional studies center that Brademas is seeking to found at the University.
