Maurice Hinchey (born 1938) served in the New York State Assembly from 1975 until 1992 and then in the United States Congress from 1993 until his retirement in 2013. He first represented the 26th Congressional district of New York and then the 22nd after redistricting. Both are in the Hudson Valley. Hinchey is a member of the Democratic Party.

This collection contains materials from Maurice Hinchey's service in the New York State Assembly and the United States Congress. There is significantly more material documenting his Congressional service. The collection includes Assembly constituent corrrespondence and case files. From his Congressional service it consists of official correspondence, Congressional Committee files, leadership files, photographs, awards, subject files, case files, VHS tapes, clippings, and legislative files.

The collection is unprocessed and is likely disorganized. Individual items may be difficult to find.

All Congressional items in this collection were transferred to the University Libraries, M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives by Maurice Hinchey and his Congressional office staff in 2012-2013. The New York State Assembly materials were transferred to the Department of Special Collections and Archives in 2017 by the New York State Archives.
