10Title:  Theodore E. Burton Papers     
 Creator:  Burton, Theodore E. 
 Dates:  1869-1958 
 Abstract:  Theodore E. Burton (1851-1929) was a United States Representative (1889-1891, 1895-1909, and 1921-1928) and Senator (1909-1915 and 1928-1929) from Cleveland, Ohio. While in Congress, Burton was involved in a number of important issues of the day, and was also a prominent figure in Republican Party politics. He maintained a lifelong involvement in the international peace movement. Burton was a candidate in the 1907 Cleveland mayoral election, losing to Democrat Tom L. Johnson. A bachelor, he was close to his niece, Grace Burton, who became a political confidant, housekeeper, and companion to him in his later years. The collection consists of diaries, journals, appointment books, correspondence, reports, bills and government documents, minutes, notes and other memoranda, pamphlets, printed public remarks, speeches, articles, manuscripts, notebooks, account books, receipts, income tax returns, programs and other memorabilia, passports, address files, newspaper clippings, and scrapbooks. Legislative issues Burton was involved with are well represented in the collection. These include inland waterways; the Inland Waterways Commission; financial, banking, and currency legislation; immigration restriction; postal, trade and tariff issues; the Panama Canal; political patronage; veterans' and pension affairs; and labor legislation. Local Cleveland, Ohio, issues are represented in the collection. These include the 1907 Cleveland mayoral race, construction of a federal building, local and Ohio politics, and the flood of 1913. Burton's dedication to the international peace movement is documented in the collection. The important role played by his niece Grace Burton is illustrated in her correspondence with her uncle, often demonstrating her own deep interest in local and national politics. Burton's own writings, especially research materials and manuscripts for his two major works, Financial Crises and John Sherman, make up a significant portion of the collection.

12Title:  Howard M. Metzenbaum Congressional Papers, Record Group 1     
 Creator:  Metzenbaum, Howard M. 
 Dates:  1972-1976 
 Abstract:  Howard Morton Metzenbaum (1917-2008) was an Ohio Democrat who served in the United States Senate for one appointed term in 1974 and for three consecutive elected terms from 1976 to 1995. Metzenbaum was born on June 4, 1917, in Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from Glenville High School in Cleveland, Howard Metzenbaum attended Ohio State University, where he earned both his B.A. and L.L.D. Soon after graduating from law school, Metzenbaum founded his own law firm, Metzenbaum, Gaines, Finley, and Stern, in Cleveland. Howard Metzenbaum entered politics at the age of 26, serving in the Ohio House of Representatives from1943 to 1947 and in the Ohio State Senate from 1947 to 1950. He went on to become Ohio Senator Stephen M. Young's campaign manager in 1958. Meanwhile, he had also founded the Airport Parking Company of America (APCOA) with his business partner Alva "Ted" Bonda, who would remain an important associate throughout Metzenbaum's career. Metzenbaum ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in 1970, losing to Robert Taft, Jr. In 1974, however, he was appointed to the Senate by Ohio governor John Gilligan to replace William Saxbe, who had been appointed to the position of U.S. attorney general. Metzenbaum sought the Senate seat himself in the 1974 Democratic primary but lost to John Glenn. Metzenbaum later ran against incumbent Republican Robert A. Taft, Jr., in 1976, and won. In 1982 he handily won reelection against moderate Republican state senator Paul Pfeifer, and again in 1988 when he was opposed by Cleveland mayor George Voinovich, who ran a mostly negative campaign that accused Metzenbaum of being soft on child pornography. Metzenbaum chose not to run for reelection in 1994, instead supporting his son-in-law Joel Hyatt's ultimately unsuccessful campaign. Howard Metzenbaum's legacy in the U.S. Senate was as an ardent liberal. He quickly earned a reputation as a champion of consumer rights in 1977 when he and Senator James Abourezk (D-SD) embarked on a 14-day filibuster against the deregulation of natural gas; later, he spearheaded other important consumer legislation such as the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1989, and was also involved in food safety investigations involving artificial sweeteners, dietary supplements, and poultry processing. Metzenbaum was also responsible for significant legislation in the area of workers' rights, particularly the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which required companies employing 100 or more people to provide at least 60 days' advance notice to employees in the event of a plant closing or mass layoffs. Other legislative priorities included environmental protection, funding for Alzheimer's disease, support for Israel, and gun control. Metzenbaum introduced the Brady Bill in the Senate beginning in 1986 until it was finally signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1993. Senator Metzenbaum also became known for his "filibuster-by-amendment" technique, in which he would delay passage of a bill by attaching as many as several dozen amendments. He was a particular critic of earmark-laden "pork barrel" bills, which he believed wasted taxpayers' money (and which he blocked at every opportunity, to the irritation of many of his colleagues). During his three elected terms, Metzenbaum was a member of the Indian Affairs committee, Budget committee, and Judiciary committee. He also served on the Subcommittee on Citizens and Shareholders Rights and Remedies and the Labor and Human Resources subcommittee. He served as the chairman of the Antitrust, Monopoly, and Business Rights subcommittee. As a member of the Judiciary committee, he investigated the savings and loan and insurance scandals of the 1980s, helped to block President Ronald Reagan's nomination of conservative judge Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court, and unsuccessfully attempted to block confirmation of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court. Married to his wife Shirley (Turoff) Metzenbaum in 1946, Howard Metzenbaum had four daughters: Barbara, Susan, Shelley, and Amy. He died on March 12, 2008, at age 90. The collection consists of agendas, agreements, amendments, appointment books, briefing books, budgets, campaign literature, certificates, charts, Congressional Record inserts, correspondence, daily schedules, draft legislation, financial statements, guest books, handbooks, hearing transcripts, indexes, invitations, itineraries, job descriptions, journal articles, legal documents, legislation, lists, magazine articles, manuals, meeting notices, memoranda, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, office manuals, photographs, polls, press releases, proposals, questionnaires, reports, resolutions, scrapbooks, speech texts, statements, statistics, talking points, tax records, telegrams, testimony, and transcripts.
