Administrative Information

Custodial History

Peter W. Rodino, Jr. donated his Congressional and personal papers to Seton Hall University School of Law on August 31, 1988. 

Previously in the Congressman's Washington and District offices and National Records Center in Suitland, Maryland, the records were transferred to the Library at the Seton Hall School of Law in Newark, New Jersey. Rodino later added to the collection his faculty papers from his years of teaching at the law school.

Processing began in 1991 and proceeded intermittently until 2004. Those who worked with portions of the collection during this period include: Barbara Geller and Merilee Jennings. Following Mr. Rodino's death in May 2005, Seton Hall engaged The Winthrop Group, Inc. to resume the effort, undertake complete processing, and prepare the finding aid. The Winthrop archivists, Rebecca Altermatt and Bonnie Marie Sauer initiated work in March 2006, with John Calhoun and Jed Winokur joining the project as it progressed.
