Abstract:

The papers consist chiefly of correspondence, photographs, awards, plaques, certificates, memoranda, voting records, political surveys, 2 magnabelts (one of which is labelled Ralph Andrews) and computer tapes.

Much of the material deals with the political campaigns of Byrd for the Virginia State Senate and the U.S. Senate, especially the campaigns in the Winchester, Va., area. There are also working files from his terms in the Virginia and U.S. Senate, including his decision to retire, surveys on the political climate in Virginia and attitudes of Virginia voters in the late 1960s and early 1970s; and volumes of U.S. Senate roll calls.

There are also personal files, including wedding anniversary photographs; and files pertaining to the Winchester Star, the Byrd family apple orchards, and civic organizations to which he belonged.

The collection also contains an audiotape of "Veteran's song" by Carol Steele, videotapes of "A different dominion" a production of Central Virginia Educational Television concerning the history of the Byrds in Virginia, the rise of Henry Howell, and the careers of Harry F. Byrd, Jr. and Sr., a phonograph record [of an address by Byrd, Jr.?] April 8, 1970, and an audiotape of the ceremonies at the dedication of the statue of Harry F. Byrd, Sr., in Capitol Square, Richmond at which E. Blackburn Moore was the main speaker and Mills Godwin Jr. made the presentation.
