United States Political Campaign Materials Collection, and undated 1840-2009

Collection of campaign ephemera and other materials assembled by staff at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Collection of campaign materials spans much of the United States political timeline, from 1840 to 2009. National and state political campaigns run by the Whig, Know-Nothing, Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, and other parties are documented through printed material, artifacts, and ephemera, such as posters, flyers, buttons, bumper stickers, party platforms, pamphlets, texts of speeches, newspapers, and clippings. Materials from state campaigns and other elections such as mayoral races chiefly come from North Carolina, with smaller amounts from Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, and other states. There are some materials documenting Durham, North Carolina political history, as well as a few items pertaining to a Humphrey-Muskie committee at Duke University. Other political organizations and caucuses are also represented, including anti-war organizations, labor unions (especially the AFL-CIO), and various other citizens' groups.
