Background information sketch about donor/objects:
 
[Excerpted  from longer list describing history of various pieces of clothing in the Mona Martin Collection]
 
[…]
 
#27 was the official photograph for “Iowa/150/Celebrate/Our State/1846-1996” Register 1995-1996.
#47 the baby on front is Mona and Bob Martin's daughter, Beth, as an infant. Photograph was taken July 1957. Topic: Baby Bill. Maternity Stay Bill requiring insurers to cover 48 hour hospital stay for normal birth and 96 hours for C-section. Signed by Governor Branstad May 30, 1996
 
Accession file includes non-accession photocopies of Robert and Mona's wedding certificate, wedding invitation, wedding photographs, newspaper articles (wedding and engagement), and college photographs. Photocopy of Mona's desk calendar to “escort Gov. Branstad to give St. of St. Address," Tuesday, January 12, 1993.
 
Mona Martin was first elected as state Representative, HD 43 in 1992
 
[…]
 
Juvenile Justice photograph--Mona did a lot of work in this area. Researched top and worked on revising it. In early 1990s Davenport and across the state communities were having huge problem with juveniles. Police could not photograph juveniles, contact schools and other such activities which could facilitate work in prosecuting juveniles. Martin was heavily involved in task forces. She submitted revision to Juvenile Justice Bill. Was a major part of her early legislative career.
 
Schaffer Pen Company makes Gov. Terry Branstad pens. Each person at a bill signing receives a pen. He utilizes each pen as he signs his name ... this often results in the jerking spelling of his name on official documents. Pens are paid for by Gov. Branstad.
