MS Legislative Correspondence 1973-1978 104 boxes

Arranged chronologically by year, then alphabetically by subject within each year. Each constituent's original letter is filed with a copy of Cohen's response. Topics covered include the economy, education, the elderly, defense, agriculture, and the environment. The views of his constituents expressed in this correspondence were an important factor in legislative decisions Cohen made while he was in the House. A number of letters concerning the Nixon impeachment inquiry of 1974, which Cohen was involved with as a freshman member of the House Judiciary Committee, are also found here. These letters express strong feelings, both pro and con, about the possibility of Nixon's impeachment due to his involvement with the Watergate scandal. Cohen's responses to these letters reveal his commitment to resolving the issue in a fair and non-partisan manner.
