About this collection

The O'Neill and Lemon Law oral histories are significant for their impact on Connecticut governing initiatives that reverberated nationwide, of which the seminal Lemon Law legislation, designed to protect consumers from fraud and abuse by auto manufacturers, is a prime example. The interviews also focus on the administration of Connecticut Governor William A. O'Neill (1980-1990), whose humanitarian and environmental policies were notable for the era. During his tenure Governor O'Neill tackled a myriad of issues, from clean drinking water and assistance for the mentally challenged to appointing the first female Chief Justice of Connecticut's Supreme Court.
