Harris W. Fawell Congressional Papers

Harris W Fawell

Descriptive Summary

North Central College is the official repository for the Congressional Papers of Harris W. Fawell. Elected in 1984, Mr. Fawell served 14 years in the U.S. House of Representatives from Illinois' 13th District, before retiring at the conclusion of the 105th Congress. The papers reflect the operation of Fawell's two Congressional Offices as well as his service on the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology; the Committee on Education and Labor; and the Select Committee on Aging. The collection includes materials created and used by Mr. Fawell and his staff. These papers are open to researchers, although some series require written permission prior to access.

Biographical Sketch

Harris W. Fawell was born March 29, 1929 in West Chicago, DuPage County, Illinois. He attended public schools through high school, then North Central College in Naperville, graduating from Chicago-Kent College of Law with his law degree in 1952. From 1952-1957, Fawell served as Assistant State's Attorney for DuPage County. He then practiced law privately in his own firm located in Naperville until 1984.

Fawell was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1963 and served continuously until January 1977. While in the Illinois State Senate, Fawell was a member of several commissions related to public education and child welfare and was active in legislation related to anti-crime, mental health, open housing, open space, parks and recreation, and public and special education.

After an unsuccessful candidacy for the Illinois Supreme Court in 1976, Fawell retired from public service to devote time to his law firm until deciding to run for Congress. In 1984, he won the Republican primary and general election for the 13th Congressional District seat that was vacated when John Erlenbohn retired after 20 years as U.S. Representative. Congressman Fawell was elected to the next six Congresses, serving until 1998, when he retired.

Once elected, Congressman Fawell was assigned to the House Science and Technology and the Labor and Education Committees. He served on both committees throughout his tenure in office. He also served on the Select Committee on Aging from 1985-1993. (The Select Committee on Aging was dissolved as part of the streamlining measures of the 103rd Congress.)

On the Labor and Education Committee, Fawell was recognized as the leading expert on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) statute that protects workers' pensions and health insurance benefits as well as a supporter of small business issues. Fawell served as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Employer-Employee Relations from 1995-1998, and was a member of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections.

Since the Illinois 13th Congressional District includes Argonne National Laboratory, the Science and Technology Committee was a natural fit for Congressman Fawell. Energy policies and technological advancement were predominant issues for the committee.

Balancing the federal budget and cutting waste in government spending were also major concerns of Congressman Fawell. To this end, he was an organizing member of the "Porkbusters Coalition," a bi-partisan group of congressmen actively fighting to cut unapproved spending in the government's budget.

Fawell and his wife, Ruth, have three children and eight grandchildren and reside in Naperville, Illinois.

Scope and Content Note

The congressional papers are divided into four record groups that reflect the major focuses of a Congressman's office: Personal, Media, Constituent Service, Legislative.

Record Group 1: Personal Files

The Personal Files (Record Group 1) contain materials on scheduling, including correspondence, invitations, and appointment books. Campaign and election materials can also be found in this area. The Campaign Files, 1984-1997, for the most part consist of general election materials such as fliers, pamphlets, support cards, petition forms, newsletters, fundraisers, and endorsement information. The Invitation Files, 1985-1998, consist of invitations accepted and scheduled and may include phone messages, letters, notes from staff or organizers, supporting information about events and organizations and thank-you letters following the events. The invitations are divided into two sub-series, the first being invitations relating to national or Washington, D.C. area events, while the second relates to local Illinois 13th Congressional District events. The final series, the Schedule Files, 1985-1998, includes appointment books and printed schedules received from both offices. The appointment books include handwritten entries, while the printed schedules appear as typed and, later, computer-generated forms.

Record Group 2: Media Files

The Media Files (Record Group 2) include materials related to publicity for Congressman Fawell. The Harris Fawell Congressional Report Files, 1985-1996, consist of updates on Congressman Fawell's activities that were sent in varying regularity to every postal patron in the 13th Congressional District. The Newspaper Column Files, 1985-1998, are Columns of the Week that were written by Fawell and designed for weekly publication in local newspapers. A chronological list of topics prepared by legislative staff is included for each year. The Press Clipping Files, 1958-1998 (bulk 1985-1998), are clippings mentioning Congressman Fawell, largely taken from local 13th District newspapers and photocopied for permanent storage. The 1958-1981 folder pertains to Fawell's service as an Illinois State Senator and as a lawyer in his own law firm. The Press Release Files, 1985-1998, were prepared by the Washington, D.C. Office, and generally pertain to upcoming events that included Congressman Fawell and would have been of interest to his constituents. The Speech Files, 1985-1997, contain a relatively small number of speeches given by Congressman Fawell. The offices filed the majority of his speeches in Record Group 4: Legislative Files, either in the Committees' Files or in the Issues Files, under the subject of the speech.

Record Group 3: Constituent Service Files

The Constituent Service Files (Record Group 3) include materials related to Congressman Fawell's assistance to his constituents in serving as a liaison between members of the 13th District and agencies of the federal government. When Congressman Fawell was elected to the House of Representatives, he began advisory committees on business; elementary, secondary and higher education; health care; and science and technology issues to assist him in examining legislation on those topics. The Advisory Committee Files, 1985-1998, consist of minutes, agendas, and mailings to members of advisory committees.

A usual service of a congressional office is to assist constituents with tours of the U.S. Capitol or White House while they are visiting Washington, D.C. Often these constituent visits include an invitation to stop in the CongressmanÕs office, and as indications of this, the Constituent Tour Files, 1985-1998, include guest books that visitors signed, desk planners that included scheduled appointments for the visitors, and thank you notes received in the office.

Another major constituent service provided by congressional offices is responding to mail received from district residents. To this end, offices generally create form letter responses to be sent on many issues that generate a large volume response from constituents. The Fawell Congressional office termed the form letters explaining the congressman's stances as "Position Papers". The Position Paper Files, 1985-1998, include drafts as well as final versions. The May Mail, 1986-1998, series demonstrates usage of the Position Papers through a sampling method instituted by the Congressional office.

As a method of garnering constituent opinions, Congressman Fawell held a series of Town Meetings each year that were located at various towns in the 13th District. The Town Meeting Files, 1985-1997, include briefing books covering likely topics of discussion assembled by staff for Congressman Fawell's referral, as well as sample invitations sent to constituents. The final series, Case Files, demonstrate the actions of Congressman Fawell as a liaison between constituents and federal agencies, but are closed due to personal privacy restrictions.

Record Group 4: Legislative Files

The Legislative Files (Record Group 4) constitute the bulk of the Congressional Papers collection. The Bill Files, 1985-1998, contain materials relating to consideration and passage of bills in the House of Representatives. These files are arranged chronologically by Congress and then numerically within the type of legislation. The Bill Files cover a wide range of topics that sometimes overlap, or even duplicate, materials found in the Committees' and Issues Files.

The materials concerning the Education and Labor Committee were separated into two subseries: Education Files, 1985-1998 and Labor Files, 1985-1998. A small amount that could not be separated because the records pertained to the committee rather than the legislation, resulted in the series, Education and Labor Committee Files, 1991-1997. The Education Files, 1985-1998, reflect the broad scope of the Committee's work on education, including elementary, secondary, vocational, and higher education issues; child nutrition programs; juvenile crime prevention; and welfare reforms. The Labor Files, 1985-1998, cover the gamut of issues relating to workforce regulations. Congressman Fawell served on the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections and chaired the Subcommittee on Employer-Employee Relations. This series reflects Fawell's role as a leading authority on the ERISA statute that regulates employee retirement and health care benefits. Other topics include the passage of the Civil Rights Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, National Labor Relations Board decisions, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and union recruitment practices. Both the Education Files and Labor Files include analyses by Congressman Fawell and office and committee legislative staff, mailings to and from other Congressional offices, external research and opinions, correspondence with government officials, and newspaper and journal articles.

The Issues Files, 1987-1998, were created for legislation which did not fall under either committee, but in which the congressman was interested. Topics include the Abandoned Babies Act (which sought to decrease the amount of time between the abandonment of a newborn and the beginnings of adoption proceedings), abortion, environment, foreign affairs, trade agreements, and transportation. A subseries of the Issues Files is the Porkbusters Files, 1974-1998 (bulk 1990-1995). The Porkbusters Coalition was a bi-partisan congressional group co-founded by Congressman Fawell in 1991 that sought to identify and cut spending on frivolous and/or unapproved project spending (commonly called "Pork"). The files are arranged chronologically by Congress number. Subjects found within the records of each Congress include: most federal agency appropriations bills, balancing the federal budget, deficit reduction, rescission packages, and science pork projects. Both the Issues Files and the Porkbusters Files include analyses by Congressman Fawell and office and committee legislative staff, mailings to and from other Congressional offices, external research and opinions, correspondence with government officials, and newspaper and journal articles.

The Science Committee Files, 1985-1998, contain materials used by Congressman Fawell and his legislative staff in examining legislation passing through the Science Committee. Topics include Argonne National Laboratory and its Electrometallurgical Treatment Program and Integral Fast Reactor; the U.S. Department of Energy; National Aeronautics and Space Administration; space station development; and the Superconducting Super Collider. The materials include memoranda and notes, newspaper and journal articles, publicity information from labs and agencies, bills, committee reports, mailings to and from other Congressional offices, and correspondence with the scientific community.

The Select Committee on Aging Files, 1986-1992, contain materials pertaining to aging and the elderly for the time period this committee existed while Congressman Fawell was in office. Materials outside of this particular time period may be found in the Issues Files, 1987-1998, as Congressman Fawell's interest did not wane with the committee's end. The bulk of this series concerns the passage and repeal of the Catastrophic Coverage Act.

The Voting Record Files, 1985-1998, consist of voting compilations received from the Clerk of the House of Representatives. The three different documents were maintained by the Congressman's office, the Legislative Activity Guide, Legislative Profiles, and the Statistical Summary of Votes are represented within the series.

Processing Notes and Access

Copyright:

Copyright, in that portion of the unpublished Materials in which the Donor's copyright resides, is retained by the Donor until his death and that of his wife, Ruth Fawell.

Processing Note:

The Archives received files from both 13th Congressional District offices: the regional office in Clarendon Hills and the main office in Washington, D.C. Since the regional office files were smaller and contained inter-related topics, these files were integrated into the Washington, D.C. office files (where necessary, provenance was maintained through folder titles). The Washington, D.C. office files were further divided into Congressman Fawell's files and legislative staff files (individual legislative staff members' files were not identifiable); provenance was maintained through the folder headings "-HWF" and "-Staff".

Access Restrictions

All series are open for researcher use by appointment, except for the following series which require written research permission from Congressman Fawell:

Record Group 1: Personal Files

Campaign Files, 1984-1997

Amount: 2 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological, then alphabetical.

Restrictions: None

Description:

Congressman Fawell first sought election as the Representative of Illinois' 13th Congressional District in 1984. The voters elected Fawell to six subsequent terms of Congress (1986, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1994, and 1996). Congressman Fawell declared his intention to retire from public office in 1997, and therefore, did not campaign during the 1998 elections. The 13th Congressional District elected Republican Judy Biggert as its Representative in 1998.

According to federal campaign laws, election files must be separate from office files, and staff and support for a campaign cannot be within a taxpayer-supported office. Therefore, although these files were received from the District office, they were kept at a separate off-site location.

The majority of these files consist of general election materials such as fliers, pamphlets, door knob cards, support cards, petition forms, newsletters, and endorsement information. Also included are correspondence, invitations, background information, press releases, and election results. When appropriate, more specific categories are arranged alphabetically within each year. These categories include fundraisers, Congressional Club events, information about the opponent, paid advertisement, and other specific events.

Photographs were identified and removed for proper storage. These photographs were mostly of Harris Fawell and others at Congressional Club events. Other photos were from fundraisers or other specific events. Also removed were souvenirs such as paper fans, bandanas, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and plastic bags that were distributed in campaign years. These memorabilia were placed with the Harris Fawell Congressional Papers - Artifacts Collection.

Invitations Files, 1988-1997

Amount: 6 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological by date of event

Restrictions: None

Description:

Congressman Fawell attended many events (important exposure for an elected official) including speaking engagements, receptions, and programs honoring him. He attended events at both the local and national level, running the gamut from local holiday parades and local organization meetings to the 1989 Presidential Inauguration and the 1992 Republican National Convention.

The Invitation Files consist of invitations accepted and scheduled by Congressman Fawell. These files include phone messages, letters confirming appointments, notes from congressional staff or organizers regarding changes, supporting information about events and organization, and thank-you letters following events. The files sometime include photographs, usually color snapshots, of Congressman Fawell at the scheduled event, which were not removed in order to preserve the context of the photo.

The Invitation Files are divided into two runs of materials, both of which are chronologically arranged. The first run includes files from the Washington, D.C. office regarding federal and Washington, D.C. area events. The second run of materials relate to local Illinois Congressional District 13 events that were received either from the District office or from the Washington, D.C. office, the provenance of which is indicated in the folder title on the container list.

Five boxes of Invitation Files were received from the Washington, D.C. office, and one box was received from the District office. The District office materials were received in an alphabetical arrangement, while the Washington, D.C. office materials were received in chronological order. Since the District office materials were similar to the materials in the Washington, D.C. office files, the District office materials were reorganized chronologically.

The secretary of each office, Washington, D.C. and District, maintained a schedule for Congressman Fawell. Two types of schedules were kept: appointment books (bound 8"x10" week-at-a-glance format with handwritten entries) and printed schedules. Through 1992, both offices maintained the appointment books, but beginning in 1993, only the District office kept one.

The printed schedules were compiled daily and contained Mr. Fawell's scheduled appointments. Starting in 1988, both offices used a shared computer scheduling system, and maintained a single calendar for Congressman Fawell. The original schedules varied in size, however the files contain 8 1/2" x 11" pages. From 1985-1988, the office used a small 3 1/2" x 5" format card; from 1988 to 1990, the office appeared to create a small format (presumably for the Congressman's use) and a larger, more descriptive version printed from the computer scheduling system. The Washington, D.C. office schedules from 1988-1993 include whip and committee weekly and/or monthly schedules as well as a minimal amount of electronic mail regarding scheduling.

Two sets of schedule files were received for the 1988-1990 printed schedules. The larger, more descriptive format was retained, while the smaller format was maintained only when it differed from the large format or if it was the only version available. The files are labeled according to which congressional office maintained the schedules. If the Washington, D.C. or the District office is the only file for the year, either one was missing or the second office was an absolute duplicate.

Harris W. Fawell Congressional Report Files, 1985-1998

Amount: 1/2 Box

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

The Congressional Reports were updates (in a newspaper column format) on Congressman Fawell's activities that were sent to every postal patron in the 13th Congressional District. The reports were sent with differing regularity: 99th Congress - 5 issues; 100th Congress - 5 issues; 101st Congress - 4 issues; 102nd Congress - 3 issues; 103rd Congress - 2 issues; 104th Congress - 2 issues; 105th Congress - 0 issues. Often the January issues were summaries of the previous Congress, and were filed with the appropriate Congress, rather than by the year they were sent. The Congressional Reports were sent from the Washington D.C. office, and the articles written by the legislative staff.

The reports included photographs and articles about Congressman Fawell's achievements for the time period covered. Some of the topics included legislation and activities sponsored by Congressman Fawell. The reports were generally four pages long. Prior to the 104th Congress, all the Congressional Reports were printed on 11" x 14" newsprint and folded in half for mailing. The 104th Congress Congressional Reports were printed on 8 1/2" x 14" card stock and were folded in thirds for mailing.

Newspaper Column Files, 1985-1998

Amount: 2 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

Congressman Fawell wrote Columns of the Week designed for weekly publication in the local newspapers while Congress was in session. The columns were either faxed or mailed from the Washington D.C. office to the editors of the local newspapers within the 13th Congressional District. Through these columns, Congressman Fawell explained and discussed issues before Congress that would be of interest to his constituents. Presumably these were written in conjunction with the legislative staff member whose name appears as the contact person in his office. Congressman Fawell wrote on topics that reflected his interests in Congress and include, but are not limited to, labor, budget, governmental reform, abandoned babies, science, immigration, and taxes.

These files include two chronological runs of material. The first run is the unpublished version of the Columns of the Week which were on pre-printed letterhead containing the Washington D.C. and District offices contact information. The files include a chronological list of topics covered which was created by the office staff for each year between 1985 and 1998 (except 1995, for which no list exists). For two years, 1996 and 1997, an additional index that lists the subjects alphabetically followed by the column date is included. Two columns are missing from the unpublished collection, March 5 and March 12, 1990. The second chronological run consists of photocopies of Columns of the Week, as printed in local newspapers.

Photograph Files, 1985-1998

Amount: 5 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

The photographs were taken by various photographers, including official congressional and White House photographers. Typical subjects include visits to 13th District schools, congressional interns, visits to businesses and conferences within the 13th District, congressional hearings and press conferences, and constituents with Congressman Fawell. Also included are photographs of Congressman Fawell alone that appear to be designed for possible public relations use.

These photographs are divided into three separate categories: photographs, photocopies, and negatives. The photographs include black and white and color prints, color slides, and contact sheets. The photocopies are placed after the photographs and include images for which only a photocopy was available. The negatives are in Box 5, due to differing storage requirements. The negatives occasionally match the photographs, but more often images are not available.

No photographs from 1996 were included in the collection transferred to the Archives. The arrangement is chronological with the year only identification prior to the specifically dated photographs, with undated materials following everything. Some of these photographs may be subject to copyright restrictions.

Press Clipping Files, 1958-1998

Amount: 2 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: No access restrictions, however copyright restrictions do exist on these materials.

Description:

Congressman Fawell's District Office in Clarendon Hills clipped stories related to him from local newspapers, including, but are not limited to: Chicago Tribune, Downers Grove Reporter, Naperville Sun, Suburban Life, Lisle Sun, Palos Citizen, Hinsdale Doings, and Darien Met. The newspapers printed stories about a myriad of topics, including: Congressman Fawell's vote, academy nominations, district visits, and his letters to the editor. The Republican Party also purchased space in these newspapers and included Congressman Fawell in the advertisements.

The press clipping files include photocopies of newspaper articles about or mentioning Congressman Fawell, which were compiled by the district office and have, for the most part, identified sources. The early files, 1958-1981, relate to Congressman Fawell's service as an Illinois State senator and as a private citizen, and therefore, were not created by the district office, but were maintained and transferred by them. The 1984 file contains materials exclusively related to Congressman Fawell's first election as an U.S. Congressman. The district office maintained these files in chronological order and photocopied all of the clippings onto acid-free paper prior to the transfer to NCC.

Press Release Files, 1985-1998

Amount: 1/2 Box

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

The Press Release Files cover a variety of topics, but are generally concerned with Congressman Fawell's upcoming events and matters of interest to his constituents, and contain lists of press-worthy events.

Speech Files, 1985-1997

Amount: 2 Boxes

Arrangement: Chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

The speech files contain speeches Congressman Fawell gave from 1985 to 1998. Topics of these speeches range from religion in government, to budget concerns, labor issues, and health care acts. Congressman Fawell gave these speeches in several locations, such as schools, Rotary Clubs, town committees, and the Congressional Floor. The Congressional Speech Files usually include a final copy of the speech, and often, if the speech was published, a copy of the published version. Most files contain outlines and rough draft notes of each speech, and some files contain background and research information about the pending topic. Included in these records are also some files containing materials about giving speeches, such as famous quotes, past speeches, and documents about proper speech format.

Occasionally, cross-references were written on the front of folders referring the researcher to another set of files within the series that also contain information of interest. These cross-references were not intended to replace researcher examination of other interrelated topics. For example, a researcher interested in floor statements needs to look under both media files and legislative files in order to ensure complete coverage of that topic. Legislative files can be located in record group four.

Videotape Files, 1985-1998

Amount: 3 Boxes

Arrangement: By Office, then chronological

Restrictions: None

Description:

The videotapes were recorded by the Washington, D.C. and District Office staff and maintained at those offices. The majority of the videos were taped from television show or C-SPAN coverage of the House of Representatives Floor. The topics covered include House Floor debates and votes, network television news coverage, and current events television shows (i.e., "20/20", "Meet the Press"). Videos created by staff also include footage of Congressman Fawell's talks to classes and ceremonies.

The videotapes are all VHS format. They are arranged separately by creating office, then chronologically. The District Office maintained year only information, whereas the Washington, D.C. Office usually maintained original airdates.
