Subseries 19. Schedules, Telephone Logs and Name Files

Scope and Content Notes:

The scheduling related files are divided into three major sections: schedules and telephone logs; appointment books and computer systems scheduling; and name files.

Schedules and telephone logs are further divided into two groups: daily appointment schedules; and daily switchboard telephone logs. The Governor's daily appointment schedules are remarkably detailed and comprehensive, from 1979-January 1987. These schedules are filed by month and contain an in-depth glimpse into the life of the Governor from the time he leaves the Governor's Home to his return to RON (rest overnight), or elsewhere when out of Harrisburg. The daily switchboard telephone logs were meticulously maintained from 1979 through January 1987. Each log contains information regarding the person calling, the caller, time the person called, and extent of conversation.

Appointment Books and Computer Schedules are further divided into appointment books, and computer systems scheduling. There are nine volumes of the Governor's daily appointment schedules, 1979-1986. Each volume contains the Governor's daily schedule for an entire year containing events, trips, meetings, and interviews. There are in fact two volumes for 1982. These volumes of appointment schedules were Governor Thornburgh's personal appointment books, which were entered by his personal secretary. The Governor personally used these books so that as a result they are very well worn. These appointment schedule volumes are consistent with other appointment schedule books that Thornburgh has used since his early years as a lawyer. These schedules basically overlap with the paper versions of Mr. Thornburgh's appointment schedules.

Computer Systems Scheduling. This section contains computer printouts representing events that the Governor attended,1979-1982. These files are organized alphabetically by topic and locality. Some of the localities and topics are, for example, Pennsylvania counties, Washington, D.C., Three Mile Island, and the GOP.

Name Files. Associated with scheduling of events and appointments, name files gradually accumulated as convenient for use with schedules from time to time. Familiar contents of these files are, for example: correspondence, news clippings, and background information.
