Harold C. Giss, Democratic member of the Arizona state legislature and businessman from Yuma, was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on February 5, 1906. He was the son of David Giss (18851946) and Katherine Edna (Glazier) Giss (1885-1944), of Vineland, New Jersey. In 1918, the family moved to California, where Giss graduated from Anaheim High School and attended Southwestern University, College of Law, in Los Angeles, for one year. On February 21, 1937 Giss married Goldie 
Pearl Stool (1914-) with whom he fathered three sons: Maurice M. (1941-), Kenneth A. (1945-), and Gerald D. (1947-). Giss was employed by a Los Angeles department store until January, 1938, when he settled in Yuma, Arizona and purchased the Emporium Department Store. In 1944, he expanded his business holdings by acquiring the Toggery Men’s Store in Yuma. 
In 1948, Giss began his twenty-five-year legislative career when he ran successfully for the Arizona House of Representatives from District 6 (mostly Yuma County). In 1950, he was elected to the state Senate, where he served as Majority Leader for twelve years (1954-1966) and Minority Leader for seven years (1966-1973). During his tenure, Giss was chairman of several standing committees, including Judiciary, Appropriations, Public Health and Welfare, State Institutions, and Counties and Municipalities. He was a long-standing member of the Education Committee, the Finance and Revenue Committee, and the Legislative Council. Altogether, Giss served on twenty-four standing committees during his legislative career and was active in promoting a great deal of social legislation, including sponsorship of a bill to emancipate 18 to 21-year-olds. Because of his perseverance in trying to perfect all legislation, Giss earned the nickname, “The Great Amender.” 
Giss also represented Arizona on the National Legislative Conference of the Council of State Governments, and on the National Conference of State Legislative Leaders. He was a life member of the National society of State Legislators. 
In addition to his legislative responsibilities, Giss contributed to many civic projects around Yuma, where he served on several local boards and committees. He was named an honorary member of most of Yuma’s service organizations, including the Elks, Eagles, Kiwanis, and Yuma County Chamber of Commerce. He was vitally interested in the state’s water problems and was chairman of the Lower Colorado River Land Use Committee. He was also a key figure in establishing Arizona Western College in Yuma in 1861. Giss was honored as “Yuma Man of the Year” for 1964-65. 
Guss’ dedication to the state legislature and to the needs of his constituency took its toll on the family business. In 1968, the Emporium closed and Giss filed for bankruptcy. Subsequently, his occupation was listed as “real estate and business consultant.” His avocations included interest in rodeo and aviation. Senator Giss died of a heart attack while attending the Yuma County Fair April 15, 1973. 
Correspondence, political publications, legislative bills, and reports resulting from Giss’ twenty-five years as State Senator and Representative in the Arizona legislature. The collection reflects state and national political issues of the late 1960s and early 1970s including water use, the Equal Rights Amendment, public health and education. 
Approximately half of the collection consists of correspondence with political leaders and constituents of Arizona such as Morris Udall, Carl Hayden, Samuel Goddard and Jack Williams, Yuma mayors, special interest groups, and concerned citizens.  Letters reflect issues concerning education, state revenue measures, retirement and land usage, and general political coordination in the Arizona Legislature from 1948 to 1973. 
The remainder of the collection consists of printed materials, which reinforce the political activities and concerns of Senator and Representative Giss while in the Arizona Legislature including state political publications, candidate lists for elections, and resolution reflects state political activities from 1967 to 1973. A large amount of educational publications reflects Giss’ participation in educational issues and on educational committees for all levels of public school and college levels (1952-1973).  Public health, water resource publications, and various state retirement reports reflect issues which Giss became involved with through legislative committee assignments. Arizona House of Representative bills (1957-1973) and Senate bills (1957-1973) reflect issues of concern to Giss as both the Democratic Majority Leader and later Minority Leader in the Arizona Legislature. Finally, various national and state conference reports and publications correspond to the education, intergovernmental relations, and improvement in state government issues participated in by Giss. 
The papers have been divided into seven series: Correspondence and Personal Material; Legislative Committee Minutes; Speeches; Financial Records, Personal Business and Travel Records, and Awards; Printed Material, Scrapbooks and Photos.
