PWR Personal

PWR Personal files are in two runs. The first is chronological spanning from 1957 through 1988. The second is alphabetical by the last name of the writer, the name of the business or organization, or the issue at hand. The early files in the chronological run largely record correspondence following meetings or introductions with other politicians or business leaders. In the 1970’s the nature of the correspondence transitions to lengthier and more familiar letters with associates. These chronicle some of Mr. Rodino’s personal interactions as they coincide with his political perspectives. The alphabetical run contains materials starting in 1949 running through 1988. These letters were exchanged with family, friends, business leaders, and politicians and cover a wide variety of topics. Records of note include: the letter from Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti stating the finding that any allegations related to Mr. Rodino in the Abscam scandal were groundless, reports from the Peter W. Rodino, Jr. Institute for Criminal Justice at Jersey City State College, in addition to Mr. Rodino’s work on particular issues working with such individuals as George Radcliffe, Jack Valenti, and John Wallace. The records appear to have originated in Mr. Rodino’s District Office.
