Subseries 10. Candidate Thornburgh's Files

Scope and Content Notes:

These files are campaign documents kept by Thornburgh. Most all materials have been marked with red pen, typical of Thornburgh's personal annotating. Naturally, the candidate's own files will have particular interest to researchers, especially his record of election results! Included here are Thornburgh's notes from phone conversations, speech notes, his schedules, research on opposition candidates, and other more "personal" ephemera.
