New Online Resource: The George J. Mitchell Congressional Records Index

From Bowdoin College:

The George J. Mitchell Congressional Records Index, a powerful new tool for searching and understanding the legislative work of Senator Mitchell, is now available online.

The Index compiles, tags, and analyzes Senator Mitchell’s remarks and activities on the Senate floor during the period of 1980 to 1987, and is actively being expanded to document his entire legislative record.


The Index is searchable and sortable, and provides descriptions of each of Senator Mitchell’s entries in the Congressional Record. Particularly helpful are the explanatory notes created by former Senate staff members. Based on their first-hand knowledge of historical events, these legislative experts contextualized the official entries in the Record with notes written for a general, rather than specialized, audience.
