Scope and Contents The McCurdy Collection is 66 linear feet plus audio-visual and oversized materials. The collection includes materials related to a variety of topics prominent during McCurdy’s service in Congress, but the strengths of collection are found in the topics that McCurdy engaged with—particularly foreign policy and politics in Central America, defense appropriations and growth, and transportation industry issues. The materials include correspondence, background material, memos, notes, speeches,...
Scope and Contents The Monroney Collection is 98 linear feet in addition to audio-visual and oversize materials. Although Mike Monroney was in Congress from 1938 to 1968, his collection has very little material from many of his years of service. In 1973, the National Archives destroyed over 90 percent of his early papers. The bulk of the surviving collection is from the years 1962-1968. For the most part, the series divisions demonstrate what topics the collection covers.

Because of the time period during which Steed served a variety of topics on the local, state, and national level are addressed in the...
Scope and Contents The Stigler Collection contains slightly more than 12 cubic feet of material covering the dates 1934-1952. Most of these items were generated during the congressional years, and there is little documenting the congressman's legal and state political careers or his personal life. While this collection reflects Stigler's interests in agriculture and flood control in Oklahoma, there is a significant amount of material on his concern with legislation affecting Indians not only in Oklahoma but also...
Scope and Contents The greater part of the Synar collection, some 97,000 items, consists of legislative and research materials used by the Synar office during his years as a Congressman from Oklahoma. These materials range in date from 1979 to 1994 and include, but are not limited to, internal memos, drafts of bills, hearing materials, and background research.
