Personal

 Series
Personal papers consist primarily of campaign records, 1975 to 1994, with the bulk of the material dating from Patterson’s races for Congress in 1986, 1988, 1990, and 1992. The campaign files demonstrate the publicity efforts, fundraising, and strategy used in her campaigns. Materials include event planning files, issue files, Democratic Party campaign and Get Out the Vote strategies, and polls and other research. Included in the 1992 campaign materials are files on Bill Clinton’s campaign, for which Patterson served on the One Woman/One Vote National Women’s Advisory Committee. Also among the Personal Papers are records of the Transportation 2000 Committee, to which Patterson was appointed shortly after leaving Congress. The committee was to advise the state Department of Highways and Public Transportation and charged with studying South Carolina’s transportation needs for the next decade, particularly focusing on funding. Vertical File Materials contain information gathered by SCPC relating to Patterson and may duplicate information already present in the collection.
