Scope and Content of Collection
The materials of Tom Korologos are dated March-August 1974. During this time, Korologos served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs, working for William E. Timmons, head of the White House Congresssional Relations Office. This office maintained contact with members of Congress, presented the merits of administration sponsored legislation, coordinated legislative proposals among various departments and agencies of the executive branch, gathered information and kept a current progress report on major pending legislation, and informed the President of Congressional sentiment o specific legislative issues. The Korologos files consist largely of hand-written notes on routine contacts with Congressmen and Senators, vote tally sheets and pending legislation, and scheduling documents for meeting between Congressional and White House officials. With some variations the folders in this file are labeled: Slush (month, year). The term "slush" appears to have been used to identify miscellaneous materials. The materials are arranged into one series: Chronological File.
