Subseries 4. County Files, 1977-1978

Scope and Content Notes:

The county files supplied a basic source of information on campaign events, issues, schedules, and candidate appearances. The files were kept in four binders. One was Philadelphia area counties, and the remaining three most likely represent geographical or campaign organizational logic. The counties are kept together in the original order that they were held in the binders. Multiple copies of the binders were distributed to key staff and Thornburgh. The following information may be found for each county: U.S. census data, population and housing, economic profiles, wards, county statistics, principal industrial employers, media (radio/TV, newspaper), public officials, Republican officials, GOP voter registration, and election results from 1970 and 1976. There are some additional county notes and reports that were not in the binders. The materials date from 1977 to 1978.
