Scope and Contents: The Kenneth V. Buzbee papers consist of correspondence, legislative bill files, voting records, committee reports, subject files, press releases, news clippings, artifacts, and a few artifacts and photographs.

There is about three linear feet of material each for his work on the Illinois Energy Resources Commission and the National Conference of State Legislatures. Four linear feet of material documents his chairmanship of Senate Appropriates II committee, a committee formed for Buzbee because of his support for senate president Tom Hynes. There are several inches of material relating to appropriations for Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (SIUC). Among Buzbee's personal papers are several folders of material from the "Save SIU Committee" of 1974, on which Buzbee served.
