The collection consists of those papers generated and received by the office of Representative May during her six terms in the United States Congress. While the Catherine May collection covers an extensive array of public issues, the digital selections were chosen based on the following criteria: historical significance, relevance to the history of Washington, relevance to the history of women, and ability to provide access to otherwise undocumented history. Some general subject areas include (but are not limited to): Washington state agriculture, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, sex discrimination against women, anti-communist movements, women's rights, education, labor, aid, atomic energy, taxation, and womens's societies and clubs. Digitized items include: correspondence, notes, memoranda, printed materials, inter-office communications, transcripts and notes of telephone conversations, office interviews and meetings. Additionally, the entirety of Catherine May's 4th District Newsletters, and Special Reports were digitized covering an array of political issues important to May and constituents.
