Inv. # 008872. ****** "For thirty-six years Congressman Howard W. Smith was one of the most powerful Representatives in Washington. He wrote of helped write major laws against Government subversion and labor activism. More importantly, he used his chairmanship of the House Rules Committee skillfully to strike down or weaken legislation that called for the federal government to address long-standing social problems, including civil rights, education and public housing. His penchant for keeping a low profile belies the fact that many observers of the late 1950s regarded Smith as one of the three most important politicians in Washington."
