Marie Runyon Papers, 1955-2008

Series III: New York State Legislature, 1973-1976

Series III consists of papers from Runyon's two campaigns for assemblywoman and the two years she served in the legislature. Campaign materials include correspondence with supporters and donors and flyers or other publications. During her second run for office, which she lost in the primary, some of Runyon's former proponents campaigned against her, writing a list of accusations which is documented, along with Runyon's responses, in box 5. Her legislative files include memos and copies of bills on housing and prison control.
