George S. McGovern Papers Series 5: Audiovisual Materials

The Audiovisual Materials Series documents George McGovern's political career,
including his years in the House of Representatives 1956-1960 (no materials dating
from 1956), his service as Special Assistant to the President, in which function he
directed the Food for Peace Program (1961-1962), and his senatorial career
(1962-1981). In addition, the series contains campaign materials from McGovern's
House and Senate campaigns as well as his 1972 presidential campaign and his
unsuccessful bids for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968 and 1984. The
material dating from 1981-1984 is of particular interest as no other series of the
George S. McGovern Papers document this time period. The series contains film
footage, video recordings, audiotapes and audiocassettes, computer tapes and
diskettes, and other formats.
