Subseries 6. Candidate Thornburgh's Files

Scope and Content Notes:

During the 1991 Campaign for Senate, Thornburgh kept, as for all other campaigns and offices he held, a personal collection of materials known here as " Candidate Thornburgh's files." These are the working files kept close at hand for, in this case, the candidate's ready use and reference. These files of convenience and contain materials that are, in many cases, a condensed version of other campaign matters, and many of which have annotations and notes by Thornburgh.

"Candidate Thornburgh's files" are organized as follows: 1) "The Campaign," a general section of material containing "core" campaign materials, including speeches (and notes), schedules, media materials, debate preparation, polling data, and others, all arranged roughly by the type of material; 2) Fundraising materials and various finance reports; 3) Issue research, including specialty steel, health care reform, "Dick Thornburgh's Agenda for the 90s," and research on opponent Harris Wofford; 4) Clippings, including the Senate race, Pennsylvania, and post-election clippings (and notes).
