Presidential Election Campaign Biographies:
A Guide To The Microfiche Collection
Presidential Election Campaign Biographies, Core Collection,
1824-1976 is a microfiche collection of 197 titles on 597 fiche.
The collection includes sources about specific elections, parties and
presidential candidates, including winners and losers. The information
is not limited to the time period of the election and often spans a
persons entire political career. Secondary sources are often written
during the candidates lifetime and usually soon after the election.
Primary sources include speeches, letters, papers and works written
by candidates. Official campaign documents are produced to persuade
people to vote for a candidate; therefore, they are not always completely
factual. Try to find additional information, preferably primary sources,
to supplement information presented in campaign material.
The collection is located in the Media Center on the
3rd Floor of the Ottenheimer Library at UALR.
