Each of these sub-series may contain the same types of information: campaign materials, correspondence, election materials, endorsements, financial materials, invitations, issue files, itineraries and trip declines, memorabilia, Mosbacher (see Scope and Content note), notebooks, poll information, and position papers. There are also large quantities of publicity information in the form of articles, brochures, news clippings, newsletters, press releases and publications, and reports. Only the 1990 Campaign contains the majority of the divisions listed above. The remaining campaign sub-series contain some of the divisions listed to lesser degree.
