States in the Senate

The Library of Congress makes note of a new US Senate website which focuses primarily on the history and contributions of the states in the Senate.

States in the Senate

Click on a state to find out more information. I clicked on California.

The first page is an introduction featuring a brief bio of the state Senators Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.

Click on the Senators tab to see a history of all the state Senators dating back to 1850 when John Fremont joined the 31st Congress. You can also click on the name of any Senator and be redirected to Bioguide.Congress.gov for more detailed information about the individual.

Next you can click the Timeline page, which provides an incredible amount of detailed information on Elections, Committees, and more.

This is a great resource for teachers and students in that it provides a unique look into our Nation’s history and allows for us to discover new information about the rest of the 49 states.

If you enjoy browsing through this website, then also make sure to visit the Law Library’s counterpart, Guide to Law Online: U.S. States and Territories.
