Guide to the David Price Papers, 1960-2006 and undated

Abstract

David Price is a political science professor at Duke University, and Democratic congressman from North Carolina's Fourth District since 1987 (re-elected in 2006). The David Price Papers (1960-2006) document the scholarly and political career of David Eugene Price, including his days as a graduate student in the 1960s, his tenure as a political science professor and Democratic Party staff member, and, finally, his years as a Democratic congressman from North Carolina's Fourth District. Records from Price's political headquarters contain thousands of original documents, handwritten and computer-generated; printed materials such as legislative bills and campaign publicity; and a variety of audiovisual materials, including photographs, some slides, many videos, and audio recordings. The collection is especially rich for researchers interested in the American political party system, the work and life of legislators, North Carolina history and government, the North Carolina Democratic and Republican parties, the U.S. Congress, its committee structure, the Hunt Commission, and the broader legislative process. Other materials document political campaigns, notably David Price's own congressional campaigns and Albert Gore's senatorial campaign of 1970-1971.

Collection Overview

The David Price Papers document the scholarly and political career of David Eugene Price, including his days as a graduate student in the 1960s, his tenure as a political science professor and Democratic Party staff member, and, finally, his years as a Democratic congressman from North Carolina's Fourth District from 1987 through 1998. Records from Price's political headquarters record the routine activities of Price and his office staff, and the larger system of government in which he participated. The files contain documents, handwritten and computer-generated; printed materials such as legislative bills and campaign publicity; and a variety of audiovisual materials, including photographs, some slides, many videos, and audio recordings. The collection is especially rich for researchers interested in the American political party system, the work and life of legislators, North Carolina history and government, the North Carolina Democratic and Republican Parties, the U.S. Congress, its committee structure, the Hunt Commission, and especially the larger legislative process. Other topics include political campaigns, notably Price's own campaigns and Albert Gore's senatorial campaign of 1970-1971.

Three primary groups comprise the collection. Full descriptions of series and subseries within these groups are found below in the detailed collection description. The Pre-Congressional Papers primarily document Price's years as a student, then as a professor at Yale and Duke Universities; they also trace Price's early involvement with the Democratic Party. These papers are a foundation and prelude to Price's later work as a member of Congress. The Congressional Papers were compiled during his years in public office, and reveal Price's activities as a member of Congress, and his relationships with colleagues, constituents, and other political stakeholders. Finally, the Campaign Office Files were created from the activity of his campaign office in Raleigh, North Carolina, largely separate - as required by law - from the work of his congressional office.

Processing Note

Most original folders and folder titles have been retained. Labels included many abbreviations, acronyms, and initials; the full versions were added in brackets whenever possible. "DP" in folder titles and elsewhere usually refers to "David Price" but can also mean "Democratic Party." Keyword searching is possible within the container list, with some important limitations. First, the expanded forms of acronyms and abbreviations were not added in every instance but rather at the first occurrence with a new series or subseries. Second, labels are not standardized. For example, the search "breast cancer" might retrieve some folders, but not the one labeled "Cancer--breast." A search for the EPA's "Southern Appalachian Mountains Air Quality Initiative" within this collection may not retrieve folders labeled only as "Southern Appalachian Air Quality." To be comprehensive, therefore, searches need to be formulated in several ways. Please consult with a Research Services staff when using this collection.

Dates were obtained by sampling within folders and so may not be strictly accurate. Sampling was also used to identify the content of audiovisual materials, therefore descriptions for recordings may not be complete.

Contents of the Collection

1. Pre-Congressional Papers Record Group, 1960-1988 and undated, bulk 1970-1986

These files document the bulk of David Price's academic career prior to his entry into elective office, and reveal the formation of Price's intellectual interest in politics and political parties. Beginning in the mid-1960s during his time as a graduate student at Yale University, they continue through his years on the faculties of Yale and Duke, and end in 1988 during his first term in Congress. The materials are divided into three series, all described further below: Political Party Files; Correspondence and Administrative Files; and Research and Writings. Within each series, the folders are arranged in alphabetical order by title.

Political Party Files Series, 1960-1986 and undated
(13 boxes)

Documents Price's close observance of, employment with, and research on the Republican and Democratic political parties, from his graduate work at Yale up to the time he was first elected to Congress. During much of this period Price was serving as a professor of political science at Yale and Duke Universities. Concurrently he also worked for the North Carolina State Democratic Party in various capacities, serving as executive director and as state party chair, and for the national party as director of the Hunt Commission (Commission on Presidential Nominations). The files illustrate the inter-relationship of Price's political work and research. Many of the topical folders contain Price's notes, often related to his writings, as well as articles and documents written by others. Background files for his book on American political parties, Bringing Back the Parties, can be found in this series. As in other parts of the collection, Price's relationships with other prominent political figures are documented here, especially with Jim Hunt, North Carolina governor and head of the Hunt Commission. Correspondence, Hunt Commission documents and meeting transcripts, and a file on Jim Hunt's Senate race against Jesse Helms are included. Other files relate to talks Price gave as a state party leader and include the speeches themselves or Price's notes. There are also files on conferences attended, polling information, and numerous files on Democratic campaigns such as Hunt-Helms (U.S. Senate, 1984), Muskie (U.S. Presidency, 1972), Carter (U.S. Presidency, 1980), and Albert Gore, Sr. (U.S. Senate, 1970).

The files are arranged roughly in alphabetical order by title.

See also the Research and Writings Series for further documentation of Price's research interests.

Correspondence and Administrative Files Series, 1969-1986 and undated
(6 boxes)

Documents various aspects of Price's political and academic careers. Political files illuminate Price's ties to other prominent Democrats and his work on the Democratic Party's behalf, chiefly through correspondence, while academic files concern Price's academic administrative responsibilities, chiefly at Duke University and less often at Yale University; some materials pertain to personal activities such as Price's leave of absence, including fellowship applications, course syllabi, and course evaluations. Other items, such as departmental newsletters and other materials, give a larger picture of Price's academic environment. One file relates to the controversy over whether Duke should host the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library. While correspondence is scattered throughout the Pre-Congressional Papers, this series contains several folders devoted almost entirely to correspondence. These letters to and from Price cover both personal and political topics, with the latter most often about fundraising.

The series is roughly arranged alphabetically by topic.

Research and Writings Series, 1960s-1988 and undated
(9 boxes)

These materials, dating from the time of Price's dissertation research up to his first election in 1987, document his career-long interest and extensive scholarship in politics and the legislative process. While similar to the Political Party Files in that both contain research, these files focus less on Price's work for the Democratic Party or his academic work on the subject of political parties. Topics instead relate more to his scholarship in other areas of government and legislative policy.

While there is no draft of Price's dissertation within the collection, a number of files pertain to that research, including notes from many Senate interviews. Often the folders are topically centered on various congressional committees or particular policy areas (e.g. oceanography). Articles by others accompanied by Price's notes and pertinent correspondence may be found in this subseries also. As in previous subseries, correspondence is scattered throughout. These are the types of files presumably created as research files to assist Price in his own writing. In fact, there are more research materials than there are actual writings by Price himself. Document types include numerous handwritten notes, some article drafts, writings by others, and printed materials such as clippings, and parts of the Congressional Record. Congressional publications are often included.

Arranged alphabetically by folder title.

2. Congressional Papers Record Group, 1981-1994 and undated

The Congressional Papers document Price's many interactions with staff, congressional colleagues, North Carolina constituents, foreign dignitaries, and a variety of corporate entities. In addition to routine office records such as correspondence, clippings, memos, background informational documents, printed materials, bills, and press releases, there are also many specialized document types reflecting the political nature of the office's work: committee testimony, Democratic Study Group Fact Sheets, parts of the Congressional Record, Congressional Research Service documents, Dear Colleague letters, and others.

Personal/Political Files Series, 1981-1994, bulk 1986-1994
(23 boxes)

Files are not primarily a direct product of Price's lawmaking duties but reflect his experience as an individual in Congress across a broad spectrum of activities: interaction with various bodies of the Democratic Party such as the DLC (Democratic Leadership Council) and DNC (Democratic National Committee); work with more peripheral organizations such as the German Study Group and the North Atlantic Assembly; and daily schedules and official trips.

Orientation Materials and Handbooks Subseries, 1986-1992

Documents in binders created from at least two different sessions for new members of Congress: one held at Harvard University in December 1986; and another held at Williamsburg, Va. in 1987 and sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, the Brookings Institution, and the Congressional Research Service. Arranged in order as they were removed from their original binders.

Correspondence Subseries, 1986-1994

Correspondence sent to and from Congressman Price documenting interactions with constituents; corporations and other organizations; government colleagues, especially other House Members; government agencies; national associations and organizations; and various notable political figures including U.S. presidents and foreign dignitaries. Notable correspondents include many House Members and Senators including Speaker Jim Wright, Terry Sanford, and other officials including President Bill Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore. Though some of the letters are routine congratulations or requests, others document in great detail his legislative relationships, activities, and appearances, and shed light on political issues important to Price and his constituency at any given time. It is likely that some of the outgoing letters were written by Price's staff.

Topics range range widely depending on the issues of the time. Letters devoted to topics of particular interest to North Carolina such as National Science Foundation funding for Wake Technical Community College, drilling off the North Carolina coast, an air route to London from Raleigh, N.C., and funding of Environmental Protection Agency construction in Price's district. Other topics mentioned repeatedly include the national budget and budget votes, reproductive rights, affordable housing, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the 1988 Civil Rights Restoration Act, crime bills, the Title X Gag Rule, the Persian Gulf War, gun control especially regarding assault weapons and the Brady Bill, the environment, energy policy, surface transportation, appropriations bills, the Super Collider project, the Freedom of Choice Act, the Student Loan Affordability Act, health care reform, the Scientific and Technical Education Act of 1992, and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Constituent letters were often copied and attached to letters sent to Price's colleagues, government agencies, or VIPs. Similarly, much of the mail in this series could be described as issue mail since issues are discussed throughout, but Price also maintained a separate file with this designation.

See also correspondence in the Member Files subseries of the Personal/Political Files. There is also correspondence throughout the Pre-Congressional Papers, some in the Campaign Files of the Personal/Political Files, and spread throughout the entire collection.

Correspondence files are arranged by year, and then by type of correspondent.

Legislative Files Series, 1981-1994, bulk 1987-1994 and undated
(66 boxes)

Correspondence, clippings, published materials, office files, memos, Congressional Research Service documents, targeted mailings, newsletters from a variety of organizations, notes, committee testimony, and speeches, all documenting Price's participation in the introduction and movement of bills, his general legislative interests, impact, and influence, as well as the interaction of legislative concerns and interests with the pressures of his constituency. It is unclear whether this was a central file in Price's office, whether it belonged to Price or another staff member, or whether it was shared by several staffers who worked on legislative initiatives and policy decisions with Price.

The most common correspondents are Price, other members of Congress, and Senators involved in the legislative initiative, especially those serving on a relevant committee. Letters from constituents and constituent organizations on particular issues are often found in these files, as are Price's responses. Another significant document type frequently found in these files is the briefing memo, sent between staff members of Price's office, which serve as direct evidence of how Price's staff worked together on issues, communicated their expertise to him, and developed policy positions and legislative initiatives.

Most files are arranged in subseries according to House committee areas of jurisdiction. Within most subseries, the files are not arranged in any particular order. Committee and subcommittee structures and their names changed over time, and very often one committee's jurisdiction will overlap another's. Familiarity with committee jurisdictions of the late 1980s and 1990s will be helpful in searching these files.

See also correspondence found within the Personal/Political Files of the Congressional Papers.

Agriculture Subseries, 1987-1994

Relates to various agricultural projects and legislative initiatives. Among the prominent correspondents are RJR Nabisco, Philip Morris, other tobacco industry interest groups, the Department of Agriculture (especially Secretary Mike Espy), and North Carolina State University. Frequent topics include an ASCS (Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service) awards program and various tobacco industry issues (taxing, pricing, nicotine spiking).

Appropriations Subseries, 1985-1994 and undated

Concerns government appropriations initiatives and related programs. There are many copies of outgoing letters that were sent to committee members asking for appropriations or support for a particular appropriations bill important to North Carolina. Letters between Congresspersons often discuss or request specific “language” be included in a bill. Drafts of letters from Price to constituents are also common.

Document types are diverse and include the following: committee and conference reports; printed materials, especially informational documents such as fact sheets and documents that were likely kept as background/support materials; memos; bills; hearing documents; and correspondence, especially “Dear Colleague letters.”

The files are in order roughly by legislative subject area. Within each one, the files are unarranged. Since the subcommittees changed names and jurisdictions over time, search in multiple categories for a comprehensive search.

Agriculture, 1990-1994

Relates to various agricultural projects or legislative initiatives requiring funding. Correspondents include Appropriations committee members, especially Richard J. Durbin, and officials from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and North Carolina State University. Letters very often ask for support for a particular project. Topics mentioned include Appropriations Committee selection, and agriculture-related projects especially in North Carolina. Projects range from FDA drug approvals to the Bowman Gray Nutrition Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. There is no clear difference between many of these files and the Agriculture files immediately preceding the Appropriations Subseries.

Education and Labor Subseries, 1985-1994 and undated

Correspondents are frequently Price's legislative colleagues, especially those serving on pertinent committees (e.g. Dennis Eckart (Ohio), chair of the Small Business Subcommittee), and officials in stakeholder organizations such as North Carolina schools, Wake Forest University and Meredith College. Organizations mentioned frequently include the National School Boards Association; the Taft Institute; OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration]; the U.S. Department of Labor; and telecommunications organizations such as cable companies and the FCC [Federal Communications Commission]. Prominent labor and economic topics include: the Family Medical Leave Act; RICO [Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations] legislation; unemployment; child welfare issues; Head Start programs; hunger and welfare issues; and Wake County schools.

Education topics reflect the concentration of higher institutions of learning in Price's constituency, his interest in this area of legislation, his time spent on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee as well as his time as co-chair of the Literacy Task Force of the Sunbelt Caucus. Subjects represented include: the Higher Education Act; all levels of education; student financial aid; literacy; Goals 2000: Educate America Act; national service legislation; standardized testing; technology issues; and telecommunications issues. Other topics present seem to relate to this committee area tangentially such as files on infant mortality.

Document types and formats include correspondence, Congressional Research Service reports, various office documents, bills, staff memos, talking points, committee testimony, Price's speeches, handwritten notes, clippings, and printed materials.

Energy and Commerce Subseries, 1987-1994

Contains documents related to a variety of topics, chiefly energy production and the environment. Issues and legislative initiatives vary widely but often relate to the environment, including the following topics: clean air and wilderness; animal welfare; public health; cancer hospitals; the FDA [Food and Drug Administration]; various medications; maternal-child programs; Medicare; insurance and other health-related issues; cable television; telecommunications; energy and utility issues; nuclear power legislation; and energy policies. There is less correspondence and a higher frequency of staff memos to Price, perhaps reflecting less activity in this area of legislation.

Prominent organizations in these files include: the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] or environment-related organizations such as the Environmental Defense Fund; certain North Carolina organizations; UNC [University of North Carolina]; the State of North Carolina; North Carolina State University; the FCC; telecommunications companies; public radio; and CPandL [Carolina Power and Light].

As in previous subseries, correspondence frequently reveals evidence of legislators attempting to gain support for their initiative. The files are unarranged.

Science and Technology Subseries, 1988-1994 and undated

North Carolina universities within Price's district, especially North Carolina State University and Duke University, are the most frequent correspondents. The National Weather Service is mentioned frequently as are the following topics: the space program; the superconducting supercollider program and its funding; and supercomputers. The committee with jurisdiction over Science and Technology issues was actually called Science, Space, and Technology during most of the life cycle of these files. Prior to Price's first term, the committee had been called simply “Science and Technology” and appears often to have been referred to in that way. The abbreviations “SandT” and “SSandT” are seen throughout the files. Files are unarranged.

Commemorative Legislation Subseries, 1991-1994

Consists primarily of copies of correspondence, usually requesting Price to cosponsor commemorative legislation, and his positive responses. These letters discuss legislation designating certain calendar days as commemorative, designed to raise awareness for a particular medical condition or gain recognition for a cause or particular group or people (e.g. Emergency Services Week). There is frequently a note appended where Price (or a member of his staff) indicated his reason for cosponsoring and staff input. Correspondents are usually congressional colleagues with whom the legislation originated. In rough chronological order as received.

Consists almost entirely of correspondence, usually sent between House Members, the Speaker of the House, or sometimes the President or an outside party. The letters relate to a variety of matters, political causes, legislative initiatives, all attempting to influence policy and legislation. All are letters for which multiple cosigners were sought, including Price. The file appears to be one of record for Price, although his signature was not confirmed on each letter. Arranged by Congress and sometimes further arranged by topic (House committee areas of jurisdiction).
