U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan’s Congressional Archives To Be Housed In UND Special Collections

The University of North Dakota will become the official repository of The Byron L. Dorgan Papers, a significant portion of all records documenting the longtime North Dakota Senator’s national public service, as a result of a signing today between Sen. Dorgan and

UND President Robert Kelley in Washington, D.C.

Sen. Dorgan and President Kelley signed an agreement that announces the Senator’s “full and complete intention” to transfer writing and documents, from his 12 years (1981-1992) in the U.S. House of Representatives and 18 years (1992-2011) in the U.S. Senate, to UND’s Elwyn B. Robinson Department of Special Collections in the Chester Fritz Library.

Today’s signing took place in Sen. Dorgan’s office in the Hart Senate Office Building.
