From the Special Collections Department

Edward Kirby, whose papers will soon be available for use by researchers, was a State Representative in the early 1960s. Although most of the Kirby Collection is from his years in the State Senate in the 1980s, there are materials that date from his time in the House.

This is a piece from the Republican State Committee, encouraging Republican citizens to support Republican candidates for the General Court. It includes a map of both houses of the Court, showing the distribution of Republican and Democratic members.
