Series XIX. Video, 1978-2010

Scope and Content Notes:

The Thornburgh archive at the University of Pittsburgh has 547 videos from the years 1978-1991, which begin with Thornburgh's gubernatorial campaign in 1978, and continue up to and including his campaign for U.S. Senate in 1991. Since that time, both from Thornburgh's position as Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and in his ongoing career, there have been no video additions to the collection. All 547 videos have been reformatted for preservation and 55 videos (14.5 hours total) are available here online.

Subjects and events include, for example: campaign ads, inaugurals, budget addresses, appearances on McNeil/Lehrer both as Governor and Attorney General, news conferences from the week of the accident at Three Mile Island, Martin Luther King Day events, Governor's Awards for Excellence in the Arts, Distinguished Service Medal to General Matthew B. Ridgeway, a brief clip of the welcoming by Governor Thornburgh of Pope John Paul II to Philadelphia, 1979, Attorney General's announcement of Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) related indictments, and the first anniversary of the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

It should be noted that at the time Thornburgh became Governor of Pennsylvania, in 1979, videotapes were comparatively early in their use and quality. In fact, Commonwealth Media was formally established by Governor Thornburgh only after the accident at Three Mile Island, which dramatically exemplified the usefulness of visual documentation of major occurrences, news conferences, and events.

Selection of videos available here online is intended to portray an array of events and issues that are both visually interesting and have representative and significant content. In some cases the quality is less than excellent, but the content merited inclusion. Videos here are in low/high bandwidth in Windows Media and Quicktime formats
