Creator:
Wofford, Harris, 1926-
Extent: 381 cartons
As a former United States Senator from Pennsylvania, chair of America's Promise, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and Special Assistant to President John F. Kennedy, Harris Wofford has dedicated much of his career and personal life to advocating for public service. The Harris Wofford papers contain over 400 linear feet of extensive notes, research files, writings, correspondence, political papers and audio/visual recordings documenting an impressive career of a citizen passionate about activism. While not entirely complete in its scope of Wofford’s life due to many key records from the 1960s being lost in a fire early in his career, the collection nonetheless provides an invaluable resource for those interested in politics, human rights, public service, education, and law. Furthermore, the collection is noteworthy in that researchers will be able to examine several themes developed throughout Wofford’s career, from his grassroots involvement in academia at Bryn Mawr College and SUNY at Old Westbury to federal politics and civil rights to global involvement in volunteerism. The collection is divided into twelve series: “I. Personal,” “II. State University of New York at Old Westbury,” “III. Bryn Mawr College,” “IV. Pennsylvania private legal career,” “V. Alan Cranston Campaign for President,” “IV. Pennsylvania State Democratic Chairman,” “VII. Pennsylvania Secretary of Labor and Industry,” “VIII. United States Senate,” “IX. Public service and professional affiliations,” “X. Writings,” “XI. Subject files” and “XII. Audio/Visual and other media formats.” (View full finding aid.)

Creator:
Philadelphia Club of Advertising Women (Philadelphia, Pa.).
Extent: 17.5 linear feet (17 containers, 20 volumes)
The Philadelphia Club of Advertising Women (PCAW) was founded in 1916 by sixteen women advertising executives. The Club participated in charitable efforts, offered advertising courses, published a newsletter (Ad-Land News), and hosted social events throughout its history. These efforts garnered national recognition for PCAW as a leading advertising organization. It also won them recognition locally as an organization committed to helping the community through scholarships and charitable giving. This collection contains the records produced by PCAW from 1916 to 1984, including material related to their advertising courses, events, history, charity involvement, and meetings. The collection has several strengths, the most notable of which is its comprehensive coverage of organizational activities from 1930 to 1977. Other strengths include the number of Ad-Land News publications within the collection, as well as the event invitations, most of which exhibit graphics and fonts reflecting contemporary advertising styles. Also of note are the records of PCAW’s heavy involvement in local affairs (advertising courses, charitable efforts, etc.), which demonstrates its influence in the area. (View full finding aid.)
