Claude Pepper Papers
The Official Papers of Claude Pepper are divided into three record subgroups: Florida House of Representative Papers (Series 101-105), U.S. Senate Papers (Series 201-210), and U.S. House of Representative Papers (Series 301-311). The three record subgroups document his official activities as a Florida legislator and U.S. Congressman throughout his career in public office. The record groups are further organized by series, such as correspondence, committee, speech, and legislation files. These series illustrate the functions of Claude Pepper's work and include materials typical of modern congressional collections. The bulk of the papers represent his 26 years in the U.S. House of Representatives.
