CORRESPONDENCE, WHITE HOUSE OFFICE OF: COMMENTS AND VOLUNTEERS: Records, 1981-1989

 

This collection is a unit of the White House Office of Correspondence.  The Library is treating this unit as a separate collection.

 

The collection consists of three series: SERIES I: Telephone Comment Tally Sheets; SERIES II: Visitor Office Items; and SERIES III: Nursing Care Facility Comments.

 

The bulk of the collection consists of tally sheets maintained by the Comments Office to record views, support and/or opposition received by the White House via the telephone. These can be about a specific topic, a piece of legislation, remarks the President made, and/or general support/non-support.  The system consists of simple tally sheets, hand-maintained by the Comments Office staff and a compilation of the individual numbers.  The Library currently has these tallies for 1981-1984 only.  We found no other examples of these numbers anywhere else within the Office of Correspondence.

 

This collection has no evidence of the “Volunteer” side of this office.  We have some objects for events at the White House and assume these were items left behind by volunteers working at these events.

 

Finally the collection includes a series of index cards with observations and comments regarding nursing care facilities.  This appears to have been a letter-writing campaign to the White House and would normally be kept in Bulk Mail, but was sent to the Library as part of the Office of Correspondence records.
