William Atchison O'Neill
(August 11, 1930 - November 24, 2007) was a twentieth century U.S. political figure, most notably serving as Governor of Connecticut from 1980 to 1991.

The archives were established by Central Connecticut State University’s (CCSU) Center for Public Policy and Social Research to serve as a “repository for the papers of Connecticut’s political leaders - - former governors, members of congress, principal legislators and noted appointed officials.”

The collection can only be accessed through the Connecticut State Library's History and Genealogy Department. Materials are stored off site. Researchers should call before visiting the Library to make sure about availability.

Constituent correspondence, reports from state agencies, records of the Governor's legal counsel, records of special assistant David McQuade, correspondence and reports from the Governor's Washington Office, press releases, speeches, photographs and campaign materials including film and videotape.
