Pre-gubernatorial Career [subgrp]

The Pre-gubernatorial subgroup includes the papers created by John Swainson prior to his assuming the office of governor. Largely files from his one-term as lieutenant governor, including his 1960 campaign papers, this subgroup is interesting for Swainson's letters to his parents while serving during the Second World War. For documentation of the politics and government of the 1950s, the researcher is directed first to the papers of G. Mennen Williams.

Gubernatorial Career (1961-1963) 1960-1963 [subgrp]

The gubernatorial papers consist primarily of two chronological series (for 1961 and 1962). Each of these is further divided into subseries either reflecting the governor's administrative relationships (with the state's boards and commissions, the federal government, and the legislature) or general topics of current interest or pertaining to the governor's role as the state's chief executive. Beyond these two chronological series, there are staff files for some, but not all of the key Swainson aides. One important staff member whose files form part of this subseries is Richard Miller who was the governor's Legislative Assistant, and as such was responsible for maintaining background information on various pieces of legislation. His files include memoranda from various state agencies on their perspective of needed legislation.
