MS 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.
