Papers, 1936-1947 (bulk 1944-1947)

The correspondence series, arranged chronologically, includes John Cashmore, Luther Hill, Paul O'Dwyer, Michael Quill, Leo Rayfield, Nathan Sobel, Andrew Sommer, Henry Stimson, Harry S. Truman, Robert F. Wagner, Henry A. Wallace, and Walter Wilson. The Speeches and Writings series contains It Happened at City Hall (Cacchione's Daily Worker column) and other articles, radio addresses, news releases, two unpublished PVC play typescripts, Builders of America and Pageant for Columbus Day, and two book-length unpublished typescripts What is Public Speaking? and A Few Simple Hints to Speakers, which are notable (especially the latter) for their use of how-to examples based on numerous accounts of contemporary political issues, many at the grassroots level and ephemeral in nature. The topical files series (arranged alphabetically) contains multiple files on discrimination, electoral campaigns (PVC, others), the five cent (bus and subway) fare, housing, proportional representation, resolutions (City Council and other) wartime price controls, and individual files on other local issues, and on PVC's 1947 national speaking tour. The City Council series largely consists of PVC-issued Budget Questionnaire forms completed by officials of several hundred New York State cities, towns, and villages, and various documents and ephemera, including an Addendum (one folder) which was not microfilmed. The last series consists of four scrapbooks from Cacchione's 1939 and 1941 campaigns for office.
