The News Clip Packets sub-series is almost comprised entirely of photocopied newspaper articles. Each folder contains several packets named by their latest date and followed by their inclusive dates. They are arranged by their most recent date, a bundle often encompass several days of news - often to track a particular story, politician, or issue. Several bundles begin with either an editorial cartoon or magazine article, and one (October 21) contains copies from the 2002 Pennsylvania Voters Guide.
Subject focus is on the campaign issues prominent during the end of the gubernatorial 2002 campaign including schools/education underperformance, gambling, attack ads, endorsements, fund raising, taxes, abortion, and guns. Subjects vary by bundle and they may have served as daily media briefings for Mike Fisher.
The Newslibrary Document Delivery materials are in regard to Ed Rendell's early political career, and despite originally being housed with the news clipping bundles their relation to the rest of this material is unknown.
Duplicate bundles have been removed.
