Charles D. Ravenel Papers, 1973-1996.

Collection contains campaign records from 1974, 1978, and 1980, but chiefly consists of clippings kept by Ravenel's 1974 campaign staff; arranged in three series: Personal Papers, Clippings and Audio-Visual Materials. Personal Papers mainly consist of campaign records, 1974, 1978, and 1980. Files include financial information, press releases and newsletters, publicity and voter research conducted by the Hart Research Association, Inc. for all campaigns. Campaign ads, bumper stickers, and other campaign paraphernalia are included in the publicity files. Also included in the personal papers are documents relating to the 1974 State Supreme Court case disputing Ravenel's residency. Clippings kept by Ravenel's 1974 campaign staff make up the bulk of the collection and offer a surprisingly detailed account of the election process, with extensive collection of articles from international, national, regional and local newspapers. Feature articles are included along with editorials and local level responses to the campaign. Independent and county newspapers are well represented. Topical clippings files were kept on major campaign opponents by Ravenel's office. Persons represented include: Maurice Bessinger, Carroll Campbell, John Bolt Culbertson, William Jennings Bryan Dorn, Peggy Jennings, James Edwards, Earle Morris, Jr., and Eugene "Nick" Zeigler. Audio visual materials consist of photographs. [Contact SCPC for details.].
