William S. Cohen Papers | Senate
MS 188.8.131.52 Correspondence: Correspondence Management System
1979-1996 70 boxes
Most of the correspondence in the Cohen Senate office was handled by
a large computer system known as a Correspondence Management System.
Most Senate offices use a system like this one to respond to high
volume issue mail. It provides a method for creating many similar,
but individualized letters by using approved paragraphs or letters
of text merged with correspondent names and addresses.
The correspondence in this category is arranged chronologically,
according to a document numbering system. It contains routine
requests for flags, biographical information about Senator Cohen,
and information about the U.S. Senate, as well as correspondence
about legislative issues. The correspondence is from government
officials, as well as Cohen's constituents and colleagues. Most of
this correspondence is also available on microfilm.
