Political/Miscellaneous [series]:

This series includes subseries for Romney's political papers and those materials unassociated with other series and subseries.

 
Political Files [subseries]:

Political Files, 1958-1968, is the subseries that concerns Romney's gubernatorial campaigns in 1962, 1964, and 1966. Some are the files of George Romney's campaign manager, Arthur Elliott. Others are Phil O. Pittenger papers. The Pittenger papers go back to his work on behalf of Paul Bagwell in the gubernatorial elections of 1958 and 1960. The files have been grouped by year, and then alphabetically. They concern both George Romney's running for office and his relationship with the Republican Party.
