Subseries 2. Campaign for and Delegate to the Constitutional Convention

Scope and Content Notes:

In typical fashion, Dick Thornburgh meticulously maintained records both of his campaign and his participation at the convention. Much of the material is annotated and many drafts of proposals and articles are included. The news releases from his delegate campaign are particularly interesting background on the prospective work and goals of the convention and are available here online. His delegate news releases (also available online) and mailings further document the ongoing news from the convention. Delegate lists, programs and ephemera are here as well as the "Convention Reporter" news bulletins. Although convention proposals no doubt are available elsewhere, Thornburgh's individual delegate participation and personal delegate records from the convention in progress appear to be unique and especially of interest.
