Mark O. Hatfield Collection
The legacy of Mark O. Hatfield’s half-century of public service is represented in the Mark O. Hatfield Papers at the Mark O. Hatfield Library at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. The Hatfield Collection includes more than 2,000 linear feet of correspondence, memoranda, legislative files, speeches, schedules, campaign records, scrapbooks, photographs, video and audiotapes, memorabilia and artifacts. The collection is significant, in part, because it spans and documents Hatfield’s entire career, beginning with his time as dean of students at Willamette University and member of the Oregon House and Senate, through his tenure as Oregon’s youngest secretary of state, two gubernatorial terms and finally his distinguished 30 years in the United States Senate. The Mark O. Hatfield Papers will be open for research upon completion of processing and in accordance with donor stipulations.
