The Byrd Center houses the personal papers of five members of the United States Congress from West Virginia in its extensive archives. These collections offer rich resources for exploring national and international events of the Cold War era through the turn of the twenty-first century as well as preserving the voices of millions of Appalachians through their correspondence with their elected representatives.
The Byrd Center advances representative democracy by promoting a better understanding of the United States Congress and the Constitution through programs and research that engage citizens.
