Collection Overview

Title: Nancye Ballard Collection of 1974 Campaign MaterialAdd to your cart.

Predominant Dates:1974

ID: 01/024

Extent: 0.8 Linear Feet

Arrangement: When the material arrived at the Dole Institute there seemed to be no original order, and as a result the collection was organized into “Pro-Roy” and “Pro-Dole” series. Two newsclippings appeared to have no bias either way and therefore were put into their own series. For preservation purposes, the bumper stickers were separated into their own “Memorabilia” series.

Date Acquired: 09/19/2014

Languages: English


1974 campaign material from both the Bill Roy and Bob Dole Senate campaigns. Items were collected and donated by Nancye F. Ballard.

Collection Historical Note

This collection of materials was donated to the Dole Archives and Special Collections by Nancye F. Ballard in September 2014. She and her husband, Jim, collected everything while they volunteered for Roy’s campaign in 1974. Jim Ballard served as the yard sign chair in Douglas County.
