Subseries 10. Boards and Memberships, 1987-1988

Scope and Content Notes:

After Thornburgh concluded his two terms as Governor in January 1987, a number of opportunities were presented to him in which he could exercise his expertise in the area of law and his vast governmental experience. In this portion of the collection we have, broken down into 13 sections, the various companies and organizations that Thornburgh actively participated in as a member of their respective boards of directors. The companies include: Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO), Merrill Lynch, and Rite Aid. Academic institutions include: Carnegie Mellon University's School of Urban and Public Affairs (SUPA), University of Pittsburgh's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), and University of Pittsburgh's Campaign for Third Century. Continuing with his ongoing interest in those with disabilities, Thornburgh held a board of director's position for the National Organization on Disability. The Foundations and other organizations he served include: Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (ACIR), Princess Grace Foundation, Ronald Reagan Foundation, National Civic League, and the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh.

These files are organized in alphabetical order according to organization or company. Within each organization the material is arranged in chronological order. The researcher will find a variety of articles, correspondence, memos, invitations, letters, reports, pamphlets, meeting minutes and notes, and news releases.

Researchers should note that these "Boards and Memberships" files are related to the IOP files only in that they were produced in the same time period during which Thornburgh was also Director of the Institute of Politics. The same is true with Dick Thornburgh's "K & L" files and the "Ginny Thornburgh at Harvard University" files. Since the time at IOP spans only a year, it is convenient to include these separate yet simultaneously produced materials here.
