Senator Robert Dole (R-Kan.) discussed his book, Historical Almanac of the United States Senate, which is a compilation of speeches he made on the Senate floor during the 100th Congress. Over the two-year period, Dole gave hundreds of “Senate Bicentennial Minutes” describing the first 200 years of the Senate.

This collection of stories provides insight into the people, politics, customs, and memorable events of the Senate. Dole points out the historical significance of what are often seen as “minor blips” in the Senate’s workings.

The book is printed by the Government Printing Office. close
