Subseries 4. George H. W. Bush (For President and Vice President) 1980, 1978-1981

Scope and Content Notes:

Subseries 4 contains correspondence, newspaper clippings, memoranda, and other records relating to Elsie Hillman’s role in George H.W. Bush’s Presidential and later Vice-Presidential campaign in the 1980 election. A friend, relative, and long-time supporter of Bush, Hillman played an integral role in Bush’s upset victory over Reagan in the Pennsylvania Presidential Primary. Bush dropped out of the Presidential race later in the primary season, and was later selected to be the Vice-Presidential nominee for the Republican Party Ticket. Also included are invitations, schedules, and other materials relating to the subsequent Presidential Inauguration.
