Subseries 1. Speeches and Testimony

Scope and Content Notes:

There are 761 speeches that were given by Governor Dick Thornburgh during his two term, eight year, tenure as Governor of Pennsylvania, 1979-1987. All of these speeches are available here online. These speeches are varied in content, in the occasion of delivery, and in many cases drafts are included in the collection. It is fair to say that virtually all noteworthy topics are included in these speeches, many in great detail. Searching on topics of specific interest, or dates, or organizations and/or cities is all possible and will be fruitful.

Included in this group of speeches is testimony, since such occasions merited prepared remarks similar to speeches. Since "testimony" is included in the relevant titles, researchers can readily search on that word, if testimony items are of particular interest.
