There's no better time to revisit a memory from 2015

Louise Slaughter looking at a portrait of herself

Archives preserve special moments and make them accessible to future generations. Recently, we discovered photos from a 2015 event that unveiled a portrait of Congresswoman Slaughter painted in honor of her service as chair of the House Rules Committee (20072011).

Congresswoman Slaughter’s papers, like most other congressional collections, addresses myriad subjects and charts the formation and completion of projects, both local (to her district in Upstate New York) and other national endeavors. We can't know what the congresswoman thought about her legacy, but through the work of processing this collection, we can help others draw their own conclusions.
