    National Archives Legislative Archives Fellow 2011-2012

    Peter Schulman: I’m looking at the ways a new technology, in this case ocean-going steamships, introduced new questions and problems into American foreign relations. These steamships were also subsidized by the government. They carried passengers, they carried freight, and they carried the mail. Which is how this all passed constitutional muster. Thora Colot: The Foundation for the National Archives is really pleased to welcome Peter Schulman as our first fellow and to fund the fellowship that he’s been working on in partnership with the National Archives. David Ferriero: Peter Schulman’s selection was because of the quality of his proposal. He’d done fantastic research in lots of other collections, but had…

    Free To Choose 1980 – Who Protects the Worker?– Union Legislation

It is the room assigned to the Committee on Education and Labor of the House of Representatives, and it is where much of our labor legislation is discussed and shaped before presentation to Congress. I know rooms like this myself very well, because I’ve often testified…
