The University of Minnesota Law Library is pleased to present a website devoted to the senatorial career of Walter Mondale. Mr. Mondale is one of the University of Minnesota Law School's most distinguished alumni. He was elected Minnesota Attorney General in 1960 and played an instrumental role in Gideon v. Wainwright, the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark case establishing the right of defendants to representation by counsel in state courts. He served in the U.S. Senate from 1964-1976, where he was a chief sponsor of the Fair Housing Act.
The library created this site to provide access to the extensive body of information on Senator Mondale's work in shaping crucial legislation in the U.S. Senate. His work is documented in full text access to selected proceedings and debates on the floor of the Senate as recorded in the Congressional Record. Proceed to the Walter F. Mondale website.
