Abstract:

Terry Sanford of Scotland, Cumberland, Wake, and Durham counties, N.C., was a politician, educator, administrator, lawyer, and soldier. He served as state senator, 1953-1954; governor of North Carolina, 1961-1965; president of Duke University, 1969-1985; and U.S. senator, 1986-1992. The collection includes campaign files and other items relating to Terry Sanford's career. Pre-1960 material includes items related to Strom Thurmond's 1948 Dixiecrat campaign for U.S. President; to Sanford's successful 1949 campaign for president of the Young Democrats Clubs of North Carolina; to Frank Porter Graham's 1950 senatorial campaign; and to North Carolina's Pearsall Plan for public school desegregation. 1959-1960 gubernatorial campaign items include correspondence between Sanford's staff and county liaisons, correspondence with key advisors, clippings from state and regional newspapers, letters responding to Sanford's support of John F. Kennedy at the Democratic National Convention, and films and audio tapes of Sanford gubernatorial campaign advertisements. Topicsinclude agriculture, industry, public schools, welfare, race relations, women in politics, and religion and politics. Items, 1961-1965, document Sanford's political activities as North Carolina governor. Topics include North Carolina's 1963 "Gag Law," the Good Neighbor Council, and the North Carolina Fund. Items, 1965-1984, relate to Sanford's proposed 1968 U.S. senatorial campaign against Sen. Sam Ervin; the 1968 Citizens for Humphrey-Muskie Committee; and Sanford's 1972 and 1976 presidential campaigns. Materials related to Sanford's unsuccessful 1992 U.S. senatorial campaign include North Carolina voters' responses to a Sanford questionnaire, detailed reports on Sanford's opponent Lauch Faircloth, folders on women's and children's issues, and photographs and several video and audio tapes related to the campaign. 1992 campaign topics include welfare, industry, education, crime, and taxes. Correspondents represented in the collection include John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Bill Clinton, Bert Bennett, Hugh Cannon, Henry H. Wilson Jr., Frank Porter Graham, Clyde Hoey, William Friday, Sam Rayburn, W. Kerr Scott, Luther Hodges, Dan K. Moore, Hubert H. Humphrey, I. Beverly Lake, Sr., Malcolm Seawell, Sam Ervin, Lauch Faircloth, John Larkins, John Gavin, Robert F. Kennedy, and Adlai Stevenson. The addition of 2011 contains notes, short letters, and greeting cards, 1960-1985, addressed to Margaret Rose (Knight) Sanford; some letters discuss Sanford's 1960 gubernatorial campaign and victory, support for Sanford's 1961 tax plan, and the end of Sanford's gubernatorial career. There are also a few letters, 1959-1964, chiefly thank-yous, to Terry Sanford; letters, 1960-1967, to his mother about Sanford's achievements; and other items. The addition of 2014 chiefly contains materials related to Sanford family activities and events, including papers related to Sanford's parents, Cecil Sanford, Jr., and Elizabeth Martin Sandford; photo albums related to the Knight family; scrapbooks and photo albums made by Margaret from her college years, Sanford's political races, and vacation trips; personal papers from across both Margaret and Terry Sanfords' lives as well as legal materials, memorial arrangements, and notes of condolence related to their deaths; awards, certificates, and honorary degrees presented to Margaret and Terry Sanford by various institutions; and various recordings, including video interviews with Sanford.
