Campaigns for Aiken County State Senator

 Series
From the Collection:

Originating from a scrapbook, the .5 linear feet of Marion Smoak Papers provide insight into both his 1964 and 1966 campaigns, as well as his time in the State Senate, 1967 to 1968. The papers contain a general folder, campaign material, clippings, and photographs. Included in the general folder are papers and photographs documenting the Smoaks’ friendship with the Goldwaters and biographical information. The 1964 campaign folder contains a campaign sign, campaign ads and an endorsement from Barry Goldwater. The 1966 and 1968 campaign folder holds various campaign ads from 1966 and one from 1968. Clippings from 1964 to 1966 mainly focus on Smoak’s campaigns for State Senate. Clippings from 1967 and 1968 cover Smoak’s term in the State Senate, with an emphasis on his involvement with education, the compulsory auto inspection bill, the realignment of voting precincts, and the bonds controversies with the school and courthouse.
