Subseries 2. News Releases

Scope and Content Notes:

The collection includes all news releases issued during Thornburgh's governorship. Selected news releases (3,677) have been digitized and are available here online, and arranged chronologically. Virtually all noteworthy events and issues are reflected in the releases, making them a particularly valuable source of searchable, online information.

The news releases online cover major topics, and actions of the Governor and associated with the Thornburgh administration. The topics that have been excluded are: News Advisories (schedule related), Appointments, Bill Signings, and Vetoes. These topics generally lack sufficient research content. Bill Signings, for example, generally are simply lists of bill numbers, without any informative background. New Advisories reflect schedule changes of interest only to the media, at the time, and provide no event details.

Researchers should note that the "title" of each news release, although not a full sentence, has the precise wording of the release itself. The abbreviations and acronyms, commonly used, will appear on the abbreviations list available for the collection, should they be unfamiliar.
