This series contains political files collected before the Democratic National Convention on 11 July 1960. They are arranged by state and include the Canal Zone, District of Columbia, foreign countries, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The papers within folders have been arranged either chronologically or alphabetically depending on the contents. Each file typically contains information on the political background of each state, as well as correspondence to and from delegates and supporters in that location. The bulk of the material is correspondence on campaign issues; these letters are filed under "Political" headings for each state, and there under alphabetically by last name. The series also contains files on campaign trips conducted by Edward M. Kennedy and by John F. Kennedy himself. There is Marjorie Lawson NAACP material in the District of Columbia file. All of the "Applications" are closed. Materials in Box 1103 were added later as part of Accession 2005-187 (June 2005). These files consist mainly of correspondence between Senator Kennedy and individual Democrats regarding the 1960 Democratic National Convention and issues specific to the correspondents’ home state. Correspondents include delegates to the Convention, Governors, Mayors, and various other people of influence in the Democratic Party.
