About

Donald W. Riegle, Jr. (born 1937 in Flint, Michigan) served as U.S. Congressman from Michigan's 7th District from 1967 to 1976 (first as a Republican, then as a Democrat) and U.S. Senator from Michigan from 1977 to 1994.  His papers document his work and that of his staff in the Congress and Senate.  He served on the Senate Banking Committee (which he chaired), the Budget Committee, the Finance Committee, the Labor and Human Resources Committee, and the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.  As a Congressman, he broke with President Nixon's stand on Vietnam.  He wrote a candid book, O Congress (1972), about life as a Congressman.  Issues addressed by this collection are diverse, but they include the Chrysler Corporation bailout, savings and loan reform, the automobile industry, and the North American Free Trade Agreement.  The files of his local offices document local Michigan issues.
