Crowley donates Congressional papers to Queens College

Former Congressman Joseph Crowley donated some history to Queens College. His history.

A Queens College alumnus of the class of 1985, Crowley donated his congressional papers to the Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library in a deed signing even at the school on Thursday, Feb. 7.

The collection, comprising items donated or loaned the the college, includes background on legislative issues, official correspondence, strategy and planning documents, speeches and memorabilia. The papers and material will be arranged and described by Queens College archivists and made available to researchers as one of the school’s growing number of Special Collections. Among the collections currently housed in the library are the papers of Congressmen Benjamin S. Rosenthal and Gary Ackerman, New York State Assembly Speaker Saul Weprin, and Queens Borough President and Queens College alumna Helen Marshall.

“Queens College was a bedrock of my education and young life,” Crowley said. “I’m honored that my alma mater will house documents and materials from my three-decade career in politics. It is my hope that students, faculty, and the public will benefit from an inside view of how Washington D.C. works on behalf of all Americans. I want to sincerely thank Queens College for its assistance in making these documents public for all to interact with.”
