This collection is of value to researchers studying the life and work of Senator Howard M. Metzenbaum. Some issues that he focused on in the Senate were consumer rights, food safety and labeling, workers' rights, and gun control. The collection is also valuable to those researching the American political process with a focus on the legislative branch. Several issues relevant to politics in the United States currently, such as energy policy, economic crisis, abortion, and health care, can be researched through this collection as well as prominent events in American history like Watergate. In addition to researchers studying the Senator's life and work, the Howard M. Metzenbaum Congressional Papers are also of value to researchers who wish to study a variety of topics related to Northeast Ohio, in particular the decline of the steel and automobile manufacturing industries in the Cuyahoga River Valley and the Mahoning River Valley. There is significant material regarding Ohio politics and notable Ohio politicians of the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, including Richard Celeste, John Glenn, Dennis Kucinich, and George Voinovich. In addition to a large number of newspaper clippings, this material includes correspondence between Howard Metzenbaum and various Ohio politicians, correspondence between Howard Metzenbaum and his staff regarding Ohio politics and politicians, and related documents. Researchers looking for information on Dennis Kucinich's mayoral term, refusal to sell Cleveland Municipal Light, and subsequent recall election will find a number of useful newspaper clippings and related documents. Researchers looking for information on issues affecting the greater Cleveland region, such as urban redevelopment efforts, including Tower City and urban development action grants (UDAGs), and the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) will find a significant amount of material in Dick Woodruff's files, in the Legislative Assistant Files subseries. In the Constituent Services subseries, researchers will find documents related to Jewish refugees from the Soviet Union who emigrated, with the assistance of Senator Metzenbaum, to Northeast Ohio. There are also documents describing various infrastructure projects, social programs, and public works in the state of Ohio (including the development of Whiskey Island and the Ohio and Erie Canal into public parks), as well as environmental issues regarding Lake Erie. Most of these documents fall in the Legislative Assistant Files and in the Ohio Community Files subseries of Series I (Appointed Term).
