Audiovisual materials date largely from Riley’s campaign for governor onward and include formats such as U-matic and VHS videocassettes. Most are labeled as to their content (see Audiovisual Appendix) and some have been migrated to digital formats. Of particular interest are the Department of Education’s Satellite Town Meetings, which were monthly events on a wide variety of education topics, often featuring guest speakers, broadcast nationally via the Public Broadcasting System, local access channels, and the Discovery Channel. The audiovisual materials also hint at the great number of speeches and public appearances Riley made as Secretary of Education. A large number of photographs date from early 20th-century family photos to significant documentation of Riley’s terms as governor and as Secretary. VIP photo files feature public figures, including numerous governors, members of Congress, and presidents, as well as Ella Fitzgerald, Coretta Scott King, Jesse Jackson, Mother Teresa, Benjamin Mays, and many others.
