Scope and Contents: The James H. Quillen Papers document the public life and political career of Mr. Quillen, covering his years of service in the Tennessee General Assembly (1955-1963) and the United States House of Representatives (1963-1997). A small amount of material documents Mr. Quillen's early life prior to his involvement in politics, including references to his family and childhood, his career as a newspaper publisher and businessman, and his military service with the United States Navy during World War II. The records focus on numerous political, social, and military issues in which he was involved at the local, state, national, and international levels. Documentation is especially strong on such matters as the development of the East Tennessee State University medical school, patriotism and legislation on protection of the American flag, community and economic development in the first congressional district of Tennessee, the Republican Party, and Tennessee and United States politics and political elections.

The collection consists of office files, memoranda, financial records, legislative files, government publications, project files and grant applications, subject files, correspondence, newsclippings, scrapbooks, photographs, recordings, speeches, press releases, maps, and miscellaneous printed ephemera and mementos.
