Abstract:

Material from Crater's various political campaigns constitutes most of the collection. Correspondence, financial papers, speeches and clippings are present from her 1967 campaign for lieutenant governor of Virginia, the 1969 campaign of William Battle for governor and a number of other U.S. and Virginia elections in which she was a campaign worker. Of great interest in these election papers are the campaign organization materials.

Every aspect of electioneering at the precinct level is well documented: petitions, questionnaires, voter surveys, reports, voting lists, activity schedules, form letters, research material, position papers, voter correspondence, opponent files, publicity handouts and election returns.

This group is complemented by Crater's papers as chairman of Precinct Operations of the Fairfax County, Va. Democratic Committee and member of the Virginia Democratic State Central Committee and includes voter registration material, general precinct information, election returns and statistics, correspondence and clippings, and campaign literature.

Crater's service as chairman of the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority is documented by correspondence, minutes, memoranda, financial materials and clippings. Much of the material concerns low income housing, particularly the Spring Hill complex. There is considerable material from other civic activities, particularly concerning land use planning and zoning, and health services.

Her interest in women's issues and the Virginia ERA fight is reflected in a group of papers on women in politics that includes copies of The Virginia Activist which she edited.

Issues of concern through all her papers include women's rights, soil and water conservation, public housing, public health care, concerns of the elderly, civil rights, rapid urbanization, poverty and unemployment, and civic improvement.

Correspondents include William Cullen Battle, James Lindsay Almond, Albertis Sydney Harrison, Lt. Gov. Julian Sargeant Reynolds, and William Belser Spong.
