General files, 1966 - 1975

Call Number: RH MS 167

Scope and Contents

This series consists of four major divisions: general correspondence, constituent correspondence, reading files, and press clippings. These four divisions are arranged together on a year by year basis for each year Docking was in office.

The general correspondence division contains material filed under alphabetical subject headings representing the various Kansas state departments, agencies, commissions, and boards.

The constituent correspondence division contains letters on a variety of topics (not appropriate for inclusion in general correspondence) sent to the governor and his responses: sympathy, birthday, and anniversary messages; and, in appropriate years, election congratulations.

The reading file contains a carbon copy of all letters sent from the governor's office and these are arranged chronologically by days.

The press clippings are also arranged on a daily basis and generally consist of news stories from the Kansas City Star and Times, the Topeka Daily Capitol and State Journal, and the Wichita Eagle. Other clippings, primarily editorials from local newspapers throughout the state, supplement the news stories from the major Kansas papers.
