ASC Opens New Collections of Political Papers

The Archives Service Center recently processed the collections of two notable politicians in western Pennsylvania. The Peter F. Flaherty Papers primarily document Flaherty's terms as mayor of Pittsburgh (1970-1977), although he also served as the United States Deputy Attorney General (1977-1978) and County Commissioner of Allegheny County (1984-1996). The Elmer J. Maloy Collection documents Maloy's term as mayor of the city of Duquesne, Pennsylvania. Elected in 1937, he implemented various reforms on behalf of the rank and file workers in the steel industry.
