Governor's Appointments to Boards and Commissions,  1991-2002 ()

The "Governor's Appointments to Boards and Commissions" subsubseries is a paper printout dated Dec. 17, 2002, of records that were kept primarily electronically, in a spreadsheet format. This is a comprehensive record of all of the board appointments of the Engler administration, but does not include any sensitive information about the selection process.

Memoranda and miscellaneous: First Term,  1990-1994 (1.0 lin. ft.)

Material found in the "Memoranda and Miscellaneous" subsubseries was accumulated by the Governor's archivist from many different sources. Most of the records from the Governor's Office first term had been destroyed. Since the Chief of Staff for the first term also destroyed his files, and first term materials for the Policy Office (State Government Affairs) are not substantial, these materials, comprising one linear foot, represent a scattering of information from the period 1990-1995. The researcher interested in the first term would probably do better to consult the materials interfiled with the governor's schedules and speeches to determine his policy positions and priorities.

Office of the Chief of Staff,  1987-2002 [subseries] (15.8 lin. ft.)

The Chief of Staff subseries includes files of deputy chief of staff Carol Viventi and chief of staff Sharon Rothwell. The files of first term chief of staff Dan Pero (1991-1994) were destroyed. As a substitute, the papers of the deputy chief of staff have some, albeit limited, research value. The researcher can find more substantive memoranda from the deputy within the files of the Director of State Government Affairs. This subseries also contains briefing books and some polling reports. Additional polling studies will be found in the "Campaigns" series.

Communications Division,  1991-2002 [series] (99 lin. ft.)

Although the reporting relationship of the speechwriters shifted between the Communications office and the External (Public) Affairs office, the papers of John Nevin and Gleaves Whitney have been gathered together here in the Communications Division series for ease of reference, and for continuity's sake. Throughout their employment, they served as speechwriters and so their papers have a unity based on function in support of that work. The papers of Rusty Hills, however, will be found in both the Communications and the Public Affairs Division Series, because he served as the Director of Communications for Engler's first term, and then as Director of the newly repurposed Director of Public Affairs for the second term.

The Communications Division series has been arranged into the following subseries: Press releases; News clips; John Nevin files; Gleaves Whitney files; John Truscott files; Speeches, Videotapes; and Sound Recordings.

 
Press Releases,  1991-2002 [subseries] (6.2 lin. ft.)

The first subseries, "Press Releases," contains a nearly complete run of releases for Engler's tenure, except for the period Aug. 1, 1994-Oct. 4, 1994, when the governor was campaigning for a second term. The researcher should consult the "Campaigns" series for press releases for this period.

Speechwriter John Nevin,  1991-2002 [subseries] (10.3 lin. ft.)

The John Nevin subseries consist of background files relating to the development of speeches and messages to be given by Governor Engler. Some of these files contain Engler's handwritten editions of the speechwriter's proposed text. For the actual text of the speeches as delivered, with Engler's personal notes, see the "Speeches" subseries of the Communications Division.

Communications Director, Speechwriter and Administration Historian Gleaves Whitney,  1991-2002 [subseries] (25.8 lin. ft.)

The files of Gleaves Whitney consist of topical and other files documenting his various activities as a speechwriter, administrative historian, and Engler biographer. The "Topical files," though transferred to the Bentley Library under Whitney's name, appear to have been originally created by Engler's first Communications Director, Rusty Hills, and then inherited and augmented by Whitney. These files relate to the development of Engler's public message. Within topical, the "Affirmative Action" file contains a memo which formulates language for replies to constituents who contact the Governor's office regarding the University of Michigan's affirmative action suits. The "All Departments" file contains the suggestions of the Directors of State Departments about "the most important thing the federal government can do to help your department" in anticipation of Bob Dole's election as president. The eight "Engler, John" files demonstrate the molding of Engler's public image. Memos describing the expected political impact of the School Choice/Vouchers referendum on the 2000 presidential election, in the "School of Choice" and "Vouchers" files are valuable because sharing a ballot with the referendum was seen as being an important reason why George W. Bush failed to carry Michigan in the 2000 election.

Whitney's "Speeches" files contain his research and drafts of speeches. They are in chronological order. For the text of speeches as revised by Engler himself, see the "Speeches" subseries of the Communications Division series described below.

The "Authorized History" files were files created in support of Whitney's book, John Engler: The Man, the Leader, the Legacy.These files are a microcosm of the entire Engler collection, and a researcher can get a quick tour of the highlights of the Engler administration by beginning his or her research here. There is original material here, which Whitney gathered from other parts of the collection. For example, there are the original drafts for the State of the State for 1992. There are also newspaper clippings, bumper stickers, and correspondence. The "Bibliography" file includes a bibliography of Engler's written works as well as citations from Whitney's book.
