Summary For the more than fifty years that Democrats controlled the U.S. House of Representatives, leadership was divided between Massachusetts and Texas. The Austin-Boston Connection analyzes the importance of the friendships (especially mentor-protAgA relationships) and enmiA­ties within congressional delegations, regional affinities, and the lynchpin practice of appointing the Democratic Whip.
