Working files of the staff of President Ford's 1976 presidential election campaign committee, including materials on politics, finances, legal matters, public opinion polls, advertising, press relations, and appeals to specific interest groups or segments of the population. Although the collection contains significant materials on numerous aspects of the campaign, the records are by no means complete as several senior staff members apparently removed files upon their departure from the Committee. The files of the office of the treasurer remain unprocessed.
