The Short Collection consists of correspondence, publications, newspaper clippings, memoranda, press releases, speeches, notebooks, calendars, bills, directories, pamphlets, and notes from the period 1953-1966.
This collection is useful for understanding the Democratic Party's election aid to senators and the role and issues covered by a senator's press secretary. Incorporated into the latter part are issues facing Oklahomans in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including agriculture, oil and gas regulation, aviation, and military development. Monroney's legislative interests, especially congressional reform and the International Development Association, are also detailed. A small photograph collection is included with the collection.
