External Affairs (Public Affairs) 1991-2001 [series] (1.9 linear feet)

The "External Affairs" division (also called "Public Affairs") underwent several changes during Engler's administrations. Its function was to answer routine constituent mail and to send congratulatory letters in connection with events such as organizational anniversaries, 100th birthdays, national conventions and so forth. The aides in this office also fulfilled political functions and maintained connections with the governor's important supporters. During his second term, Engler's speechwriters were transferred from the Communications Division to this division, together with former Communications Director Rusty Hills, who became the new External Affairs Director. For the third term, the speechwriters were moved back to Communications. For ease of access in using the Engler collection, the speechwriters files have all been consolidated within the "Communications" series. This includes substantial material generated by Rusty Hills, whose files were apparently inherited and added to by Gleaves Whitney and were transferred to the Bentley under the aegis of the Communications Division.

Some of Rusty Hill papers have been retained within the External Affairs division, together with those of Tim Ward. Hills papers were received unfoldered, and thus the file categories and captions are those of the archivist, not of Hills himself. Tim Ward's files are largely political in nature, and touch on relationships with other politicians, elections, fundraising, and communication of political agendas.
