This series contains material collected after the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles (which ended on 15 July 1960), and before the presidential election held on 8 November 1960. Except for the first four folders, which contain nationally distributed robotype letters and a chronological file of thank you letters, the material is arranged alphabetically by state. The content is mainly congratulations, endorsements, campaign advice, and offers of assistance; there is very little information on campaign strategy. The records for each state are usually divided into two categories, “Organizational" and "Political." Within the folders, papers are arranged either chronologically or alphabetically, depending upon contents. Materials in Box 1104 were added later as part of Accession 2005-187 (June 2005). These files consist mainly of correspondence between Senator Kennedy and individual Democrats regarding Kennedy’s campaign for president and issues specific to the correspondents’ home state.
