About this object
Representatives approached spreading their views and sharing useful information in creative and curious ways. For example, in 1974, former gospel singer and broadcaster Representative Bill Hefner sent out his personal message—and a song—to his fellow North Carolinians on this recording, which is integrated into its own printed sleeve. Representative Marguerite Stitt Church showed her expertise in a more traditional way. In 1951, shortly after she won her seat, she promoted a luncheon lecture in her Illinois district. Both approaches informed voters and showed the Member’s commitment to their constituencies.
