During the years that Warren Featherstone Reid served on the Senate staff as an aide to the chairman of the Commerce Committee, the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, the president pro tempore, and the senior Senator from the State of Washington, he needed only one calling card: "Assistant to Warren G. Magnuson." Reid's close association with Senator Magnuson stretched from his appointment on the senator's patronage as an elevator operator in 1949, to their mutual retirement from the Senate in 1981. Over the years, Reid had the opportunity to witness the inside workings of the Senate as an institution through one of its most influential members. In these oral history interviews he recounts his experiences and observations.
