Agriculture - Commissioner's Office - Re-Election Campaign of J.J. Brown Correspondence

Identifier: 013-01-032

Scope and Contents

This surviving portion of a larger series of records contains incoming and copies of outgoing correspondence; lists of rural mail carriers and registered voters; copies of newspaper articles, some apparently used for campaign literature and other records from the office of Commissioner of Agriculture J.J. Brown. All the records requesting lists of rural mail carriers were created apparently in an effort to further the re-election of Commissioner Brown. The expressed interest in rural mail carriers was to gain from the mail carriers the names of all farmers on the various routes to be added to the list of those who received the Agriculture Department's bulletin. However, it can be conjectured that, because of the tone of the other correspondence in this series, the chief interest in the project on the part of Commissioner Brown was prompted by his desire to get his name before the farmers in order to be re-elected.
