Campaign Files


Campaign Files, 4 linear feet (4 cartons), 1938 to 1964, contain correspondence and other materials related to Johnston's campaigns for public office as well as other statewide campaigns. This series contains valuable records from the presidential races of 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960, and 1964. Particularly good material exists for the campaigns of Adlai Stevenson, 1952 and 1956, and Barry Goldwater, 1964. William C. Johnston's 1958 gubernatorial campaign is also documented with papers including campaign speeches. Party activities, chiefly at the national level, are documented both in this series and, under the heading "Democratic Party," within Legislative Files.
