Scope and Content Note

The series consists of constituent services files from 1873-1996 (bulk 1973-1996). The constituent services staff in Nunn's Washington, D.C. and Atlanta offices responded to constituent mail and inquiries. Constituent project files document issues that affected a community, business, or institution. Correspondence management files document the correspondence management unit and include mail reports, staff files, and constituent correspondence item libraries and data. The series also contains constituent correspondence received by Nunn's office from 1973-1996, as well as outgoing responses sent by the office. The vast majority of this correspondence is constituent letters about legislative issues (issue mail).
