Abstract:

The Elly McMillan Peterson papers consis of 7 series: Republican Party Activities, ERAmerican, Other Organizational Activities, Personal/Biographical, Speeches, Photographs, Scrapbooks/Clippings. The first series, and by far the largest set of files, has been labelled Republican Party Activities (17 linear ft.; 1958-1985). Grouped by period of time, this series really covers Peterson's entire career as she was a lifelong Republican. As she held many different positions within the party.

The series naturally breaks down into chronological divisions: 1958-1964, 1965-1970, 1971-1979, and 1980-1985. Each of these chronological divisions begins with a set of files (arranged roughly by chronology) that include correspondence, memoranda, and other forms of communication. These files are then followed by sub-series of material either resulting from specific activities within the party or offices held either within the state or national Republican party.

Thus files pertaining to Peterson's campaign for the U.S. Senate in 1964 will be found within the 1958-1964 division and files created while serving with the President Ford Committee in 1976 will be found in the 1971-1979 division. Other Republican party material will of course be found within genre series - Speeches, Photographs, and Scrapbooks/Clippings. The second series - ERAmerica - relates to Peterson's work within this organization to obtain passage of the Equal Rights Amendment.

The series (1.5 lin. ft.; 1971-1982) includes material that predates the establishment of ERAmerica but which relates to women's issues in general. The files have been arranged alphabetically by topic. Papers from Peterson's other group activities have been put into Other Organizaional Activities (1 lin. ft.; 1969-1983). These files document in part Peterson's many trips abroad with women's organizations, notably to China and the Middle East.

Personal/Biographical (.3 lin. ft.; 1955-1981) includes information about awards received by Peterson and some of her private writings. Speeches (1 lin. ft.; 1953-1980) includes both manuscripts of her speeches and also published copies. Other speeches of Peterson will be found (as indicated) in the Republican Party Activities and ERAmerica series. The Photographs series (.3 lin. ft.; ca. 1950-ca. 1976) and the Scrapbooks/Clippings series (2 lin. ft.; 1943-ca. 1980) are self-explanatory.
