New Web Site: Robert H. Michel, U.S. Congressman
- New Web Site: Robert H. Michel, U.S. Congressman --
The Dirksen Congressional Center has created a site devoted to Robert Henry
"Bob" Michel, a Republican representing central Illinois’s 18th congressional
district in the U.S. House of Representatives for 38 years.?He served as
Minority Whip (1975-1981) and Minority Leader (1981-1995) during an era of
Democratic Party House dominance.
At this site you will learn about Michel and his leadership, read quotations,
see photos, watch videos, and search the Robert H. Michel Collection, first
acquired by The Center in 1989 and supplemented over the years.
Among the special features of the site are digital selections from Michel’s
"Presidential Scrapbooks" in which he kept selected photographs and
correspondence from each of the nine presidents with whom he served. We have
also transcribed and posted to the site the notes Michel kept of congressional
leadership meetings in the White House.
