This collection pertains entirely to Albert Wynn's service in the House of Representatives. A large portion of the collection consists of news clippings, correspondence, and committee files, as well as extensive collections of video and audio tape and photographs documenting Wynn's activities. Issues mentioned in the files include the War in Iraq, the environment, minority-owned and small business, energy policy, television ratings, affirmative action, and employment discrimination. Correspondents include many national politicians active during the period 1993 to 2008, especially other members of Maryland's Congressional Delegation, Presidents Bill Clinton and George W.
