The papers consist of 6 linear feet of material arranged in five series: Public, Personal, Speeches, Clippings, and Audiovisual. The public papers focus on Theodore’s time in the General Assembly. The largest category of topical material is education. Materials of interest are the Education Finance Act, which Theodore helped write in his time as Chairman of the House Education and Public Works Committee, and the Education Improvement Act. Personal papers are chiefly from his campaigns for Lieutenant Governor and Governor. Included are campaign memos, programs from fundraisers, and miscellaneous notes from the election. Also in this section are documents from his time in the Jaycees and his involvement in the Greek Orthodox Church. Speeches are arranged chronologically, 1974 to 2007, with over 20 undated speeches as well. Most of the speeches are final drafts that Theodore gave to various organizations during his years as Lieutenant Governor, 1987 to 1994. Clippings are arranged by topic, the bulk covering the 1994 election. Clippings from the 1986 and 1990 elections, activity with the Jaycees, and his time in the General Assembly are also present. A significant portion of this collection is photographs. There are many from campaign events and fundraisers, photos of Theodore with Campbell at different events, such as the Mellow Yellow 500, and an album of photos from his visit to Sumter School District in 1987.
