Includes correspondence with constituents and state officials; bills and legislative materials; memoranda; reports; pamphlets; and publications arranged according to subject. The collection contains background information and committee working papers showing Virginia's responses to the energy crisis of the late 1970's and to Ronald Reagan's "New Federalism" programs as well as the state's policies on education, transportation, and welfare funding, and the activities of state regulatory agencies.

There are materials concerning Bateman's sponsorship of coastal zone land management bills, bills for execution by lethal injection, bills for mandatory sentencing by judges in criminal cases and his activities on behalf of the port of Newport News, the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company and the Virginia seafood industry. The largest body of material concerns Bateman's 1975-1977 efforts as paid counsel and as senator to minimize the economic impact of the poisoning of the James River by kepone on the Virginia seafood industry.

Prominent correspondents include Linwood Holton, Mills Godwin, John Dalton, Charles Robb, Harry F. Byrd, Jr., William Spong, Thomas Downing, William Scott and Paul Trible, other General Assembly members and state agency commissioners.

Arrangement

The Herbert H. Bateman Papers consist of Bateman's state senatorial office files, 1968-1982, which are arranged alphabetically according to subjects and issues. Each subject file contains all types of materials: correspondence, memoranda, reports, publications, pamphlets, newspaper clippings, bills, and other legislative documents. The collection includes voluminous background materials on the various issues, as well as correspondence and papers revealing Bateman's positions on the issues.

The collection contains little information on Bateman's political activities (the original file inventory indicates that such material was retained) such as campaigns or party activity. The only file dealing with a political campaign is one entitled "Trible," which contains Bateman's correspondence with members of the Virginia Senate pertaining to the campaign of Representative Paul Trible for the U.S. Senate.

The Bateman Papers have been arranged almost completely according to the original office file organization. Unfortunately, maintaining original office integrity has also meant retaining serious inconsistencies and redundancies. During Bateman's 14-year tenure in the Senate, he had several legislative aides who often duplicated files under different names or placed similar material in different files. With a few exceptions, these inconsistencies have been kept in the arrangement of this collection.

Several files have been altered because the original office files had no apparent order. These files include Kepone, Ports of Virginia/Virginia Port Authority, and State Water Control Board/Water Resources. In addition, the files of Constituent Correspondence and Legislative Correspondence (originally filed alphabetically as "correspondence") have been moved to the end of the collection, and the files of Consumer Credit, Consumer Protection, and School Distribution Formula have been moved into the alphabetical file order.

Hints for Users
If users of this collection are researching Bateman's position or assembly action on a particular issue, there are several things they must do and know in order to ensure that they find all relevant materials.

First, there are several series that include materials related to many different issues. Users are advised to at least skim the following series at the beginning of the collection: Attorney General Opinions, JLARC, Legislative Proposals, Post-Session, Pre-Session, and Senate Bills. And skim these series at the end of collection: Research Materials, Constituent Correspondence, Legislative Correspondence, and 1982 Session.

Second, if users are interested in particular types of materials, such as Attorney General's opinions, bills, or constituent correspondence, be aware that, although there are separate series for them, such materials can also be found throughout the collection.

Third, materials are occasionally filed under very non-descriptive and misleading titles. The most notable of these are large amounts of material pertaining to the income tax structure of Virginia filed under Joint Subcommittee To Study Virginia's Individual Income Tax Structure, and materials pertaining to Bateman's campaign against "open" visitation in state college dormitories, filed (among other series) as Senate Joint Resolution 24 (S.J.Res. 24).

Fourth, in some cases, similar, even duplicate, material is stored in different series. Series descriptions usually indicate other series containing similar material, but, for the user's convenience, below is a list of the most severe redundancies:
