[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: The Ebbesen Papers span the years 1975 to 1984 and primarily document his role as a legislator in the Illinois General Assembly.  The materials are divided five series: the 79th G.A. (1975-1976); the 80th G.A. (1977-1978); the 81st G.A. (1979-1980); the 82nd G.A. (1981-1982); and a miscellaneous collection of papers (1975-1982).  Within each series are subseries containing house and senate bills, subject files, constituent correspondence, publications, and press releases.  The bills are organized by number; a short subject heading describes, in general, bill topics.  Subject files document such topics as firemen and policemen pensions, optometric policies, education, and the equal rights amendment.  Although there are separate files of constituent correspondence, some correspondence can be found in the bills and subject files as well.  Publications and press releases include newspaper clippings that highlight portions of Ebbesen's career, reports on vocational education, school decentralization, criminal sentencing, and some legislative reports.
