This collection reflects the work of John H. Rousselot during his latter terms in office--spanning 1970 to 1983--in the U.S.
House of Representatives.
John Harbin Rousselot (1927-2003) was a Republican congressional representative from southern California who represented parts
of the San Gabriel Valley in the U.S. House of Representatives for 14 years. Rousselot was first elected to the Eighty-seventh
Congress (1961-1963) by California's 25th congressional district. Following his unsuccessful reelection to the Eighty-eighth
Congress, Rousselot worked as a management consultant and Western regional director for the conservative advocacy group, the
John Birch Society. Rousselot returned to Congress in 1970, elected by California's 24th congressional district to serve the
Ninety-first Congress and the six succeeding Congresses (1970-1983). While in Congress, Rousselot served on various banking
and budgetary committees, including the Committee on Banking and Currency and the Committee on Ways and Means, generally adopting
stances against public spending and tax increases. After leaving Congress, Rousselot worked as special assistant to President
Ronald Reagan, as president of the National Council of Savings Institutions, and as the final chairman and chief executive
of Lincoln Savings and Loan.
