James Wine was Kennedy's special assistant to handle the religious question during the 1960 campaign. Prior to taking this position, he was associate general secretary of the National Council of Churches. These files are arranged into three sections. The first contains the correspondence on the religious issue which was received by Kennedy's campaign headquarters and was answered primarily by Wine or by J. Arthur Lazell, who was in charge of Community Relations. The letters of this section are both highly articulate expressions by reputable religious and lay figures and also incoherent, irate, and unanswerable attacks by religious fanatics. The second group of files consists of alphabetical subject files. Following is a collection of religious literature, both pro- and anti-Catholic. A cross-referenced listing of some of these materials, prepared by the Fair Campaign Practices Committee, can be found in the committee's folder in Box 1015.
