AFL-CIO. Committee on Political Education: Records, 1946-1959, 1972

Scope and Content Note

The papers are organized in three series. File A is a miscellaneous file containing correspondence, reports, lists, printed material, and newspaper articles relating to local Congressional elections. The approximate period is from the late 1940s to the middle 1950s. File B, 1946-1957, deals exclusively with Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. The material is mostly printed matter, newspaper clippings, various reports and records kept by LLPE, PAC, and COPE, covering the period McCarthy spent as United States Senator from Wisconsin. File A and File B are each numbered Box 1 through 8 so users should specify the series as well as the box number when requesting materials. The tape recordings consist of COPE reports (May-July, 1972).
