Subseries 4. Questionnaires

Scope and Content Notes:

Before an election, it is common for newspapers and varying other organizations to request from candidates either responses to questionnaires or specific position statements. The questions asked reflect the group's interests in some way and/or are designed to present views of the candidates to the voting public. The answers that the candidates provide may lead to campaign endorsements, but the information almost always is shared with the organization's members or the newspaper's readers.

The questionnaires are a group of requests from organizations to Dick Thornburgh and, in most cases, his subsequent responses are included. They are arranged alphabetically by organization or publication name.
