2 Title:   J. Roy Rowland Papers, Series III: Constituent Services  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Rowland, J. Roy (James Roy), 1926-  
  Dates:   1983-1994  
  Contents:  
Constituent Services series is organized in three subseries: A. Academies [Restricted], B. Projects and Grants, and C. Constituent Mail. The constituent mail makes up the majority of this series and contains mail on a variety of topics including form letter lobbies of Rowland and personal letters written about issues of interest to constituents. Correspondence about specific legislation is typically filed in Series II. Legislative with the staff member who handled the topic in question. In this series, however, most constituent letters do not have a personal reply from Rowland or his staff representative, but received a form reply, which is typically not attached to the letter, but filed with other form responses (see 2. Computer Mail, 103rd Congress for form replies, 1991-1994 and Series II. Legislative, A. Legislative Directors' Files, Kathy Bryant Hennemuth's Legislative Mail for early form responses). The only exception to this type of form reply is Intergovernmental Affairs Mail, which did receive personal responses from a staff member and/or Rowland.
