Summary
This study provides background information as well as data on congressional careers and pre- and post-Congress political office-holding for all members of the First through Ninety-sixth Congresses of the United States. Background information includes state of birth, year of birth, relatives also serving in Congress, military service, private or public secondary education, college attended, major occupation, and longest held party affiliation. Office-holding variables document the last office held prior to and first office held immediately after congressional service at the municipal, county, state, and federal levels, with judicial offices treated separately. Data on the congressional career itself include the year first elected to Congress, number of years served in each chamber, and the reason for leaving Congress. The data for the period from 1789 to 1960 were collected by Carroll R. McKibbin, University of Nebraska. The data from 1961 to 1979 were prepared by ICPSR staff
