MS General Correspondence 1973-1978 6 boxes

Arranged chronologically. The Cohen office received mail from constituents that fell into four general categories: legislative issues, personal difficulties constituents were having in dealing with the Federal government, scheduling issues, and general mail. The legislative mail went to the legislative assistants to answer, the mail dealing with personal difficulties went to the office caseworker, mail dealing with Cohen's schedule went to his personal secretary, and the general mail was parceled out by the administrative assistant to various members of the Cohen staff to answer. This subseries consists of general mail, and it contains copies of letters sent to constituents expressing congratulations, sympathy, and thanks. Responses to requests for information about issues, copies of bills, Cohen's biographical information, and other general requests are also included.
