Morris Library’s Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as the repository for the official papers of retiring U. S. Congressman Jerry F. Costello. Congressman Costello represented Southern Illinois for 24 years, including four years as chair of the important Aviation Subcommittee of the House Transportation Committee. “Congressman Costello worked on many important pieces of legislation,” says Political Papers Archivist Walter Ray, “and his papers will be a valuable resource for the study of the history and politics of both Illinois and the nation.”
