The Rangel Center supports an archive of important documents pertaining to the public service careers of members of groups underrepresented in many aspects of public service. The core of the collection is the Congressional papers and other materials donated by Congressman Charles B. Rangel. The archives will serve as a resource for students, faculty and scholars interested advancing research on US politics in general, as well as on the particular topic of diversity in US public service.
The Center recently concluded a two-year effort to archive, preserve, and make available to the public thousands of letters, photographs, articles, awards, speeches and other material from Congressman Rangel’s 46-year career. The processing and preservation of the collection was under the direction of the Winthrop Group, a leading archival consulting firm that ranks among its clients The City of Seattle, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Lincoln Center, and Representative Peter Rodino.
Soon material will be available in-person through the college library’s archives division, with some material available in electronic form by means of an online portal. Contact Sidney Van Nort, City College Archivist, firstname.lastname@example.org .
