Overview

The microfilm edition of La Follette's papers focuses on his fight to reform corruption and injustice in the political system of the state of Wisconsin. Under his dynamic leadership, the Wisconsin state legislature enacted sweeping domestic reforms including railroad regulation and the primary election law which replaced the old caucus and convention system. The papers include correspondence with Andrew Carnegie, William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, and other major figures of his day.
