F. Clippings, 1983-2014


Scope and Contents

The Clippings series contains newspaper clippings—original newsprint as well as photocopies—compiled by Senator Rockefeller’s staff for distribution to the Senator and other staff members. Clippings primarily span Rockefeller’s tenure in the U.S. Senate, but some clippings date to his second term as governor of West Virginia. Staff compiled clippings about the day’s events and also maintained clippings that mentioned Rockefeller. Most of the clippings are arranged by topic, publication, or date range. Clippings within files arranged by topic or publication generally are ordered chronologically. Some clippings arranged by date range are divided into morning and afternoon clippings, and these often are accompanied by indexes (tables of contents). Finally, some files separate clippings created by West Virginia media from clippings created by national outlets. Beginning in approximately 2001, the staff began collecting clippings primarily from online news sources and wire services. Staff in the Washington, D.C., office maintained these digital clippings in the press files of the office’s centralized shared drive.
