Scope and Content

From the Collection: The Ken Kamerman papers consist of documents from his service as a New Mexico State Senator, his career as a business administrator, and his public life of civic engagement. The great majority of the contents come from the 1980s and 1990s, although some items come from as far back as the mid-1950s. The collection contains the following: Professional resumes; Drafts of bills from the various stages of the legislative process; Correspondences with fellow state legislators, state agencies, municipal entities and officials, federal officials, interest groups, and constituents; Memoranda and reports germane to Kamerman’s roles as lawmaker, member of committees, and member of the Republican Party; Press releases, letters to the editor, and other media tactics; News clippings; Campaign ephemera and Proceedings, documents, and correspondence from Kamerman’s civic and professional life.

The collection is divided into six series: Personal, Issues, Legislation, Communication , Committees, and Civilian Life.

Personal (1956-1994) includes biographical information on Kamerman, including curricula vitae.

Issues (1981-1994) documents particular matters that occupied Kamerman as a State Senator, but did not necessarily take the form of specific legislation. An example is material on capital outlay needs.

Legislation (1987-1993) contains drafts of bills, amendments, rules, etc. from the legislative process. It also contains memoranda, correspondences, newspaper articles, and reports about the legislation. Examples of legislation include feed and tax bills.

Committees (1989-1992) contains legislation, memoranda and other material from the various committees upon which sat Senator Kamerman. Memoranda on communication strategy from the Legislative Finance Committee is representative of material from this series.
