Published biennially by the Joint Committee on Printing, U.S. Congress, the Congressional Pictorial Directory is a pocket–sized compilation of color photographs of all of the Members of each Congress, including Senate and House leadership, officers, as well as appointed Delegates and the Resident Commissioner. It also includes photos of the President, Vice President, and other Capitol Officials.
In addition to the photographs, the Congressional Pictorial Directory contains information on length of service, political party affiliation, and Congressional district. There is also a "Party Division” page that lists the total numbers of Republicans, Democrats, and Independent(s) in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Other sections in the directory include an alphabetical list of Senators and Representatives.
