Abstract:  The Erwin C. Surrency Collection of Political Materials consists of political campaign materials collected by Surrency over the course of his career as law librarian and professor at Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and, later at the University of Georgia. It covers the years 1946-1964 and includes printed materials, handbooks, press releases, news clippings, bumper stickers, buttons, and pamphlets. Materials document Democratic and Republican Party campaigns at the national level and the Pennsylvania state or local level including Adlai Stevenson's 1952 presidential campaign and the 1964 "Republicans for Johnson" presidential campaign. Georgia national and state materials mainly pertain to Mrs. Jesse W. Jenkins' 1950 gubernatorial campaign. Also includes AFL-CIO political education materials (1950-1954, 1964).
