Scope and Contents note

Records of the Whitman County Democratic Committee consist of minutes, platforms, vote lists, and subject files. The records span the years 1948-1980, but appear to be incomplete. For example, the years 1948-1954, 1972-1976, and 1977 on are covered by little material. However, the years 1954-1972, and 1976 are well represented.
