Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD) was named this week as the U.S. Senate’s representative to the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). He will be replacing Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CT) on the panel.
Senator Cardin was elected to the Senate in 2006. He represented Maryland’s Third Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1987-2006.
The NHPRC is governed by a 15-member body, chaired by the Archivist of the United States, and is composed of representatives of the three branches of the Federal government and of professional associations of archivists, historians, documentary editors, and records administrators.
