Speeches, news clippings, notes, correspondence, memoranda, surveys, brochures, pamphlets, "lit drop" pieces, periodicals, reports, and other printed materials.
Series III.A. Campaign Records provides an overview of important accomplishments that Carper chose to feature in election campaigns. This series is particularly rich in personal comments and writings by Carper, describing what he felt were his greatest achievements as state treasurer of Delaware and later as Delaware's member-at-large in Congress. These documents, found throughout this series, provide a good career review of Carper's accomplishments and the projects he worked on while in Congress. Carper drafted by hand his speeches and personally edited others that were prepared for him. This writing process provides a glimpse into Carper's work approach. He rarely edited his own writing, seeming to know exactly what he wanted to say and capturing that in his first drafts. His staff has noted that he preferred a conversational tone when speaking rather than reading from a script. As is evident throughout the collection, Carper took the time to complete final reviews of all statements issued by his staff.
The majority of the 1992 gubernatorial campaign material came from Communications Director Jeff Bullock's files. The files of Ed Freel, chief administrative assistant to Carper throughout his congressional career, provided some of the "drop-lit" pieces, literature and mailings used by Carper during his congressional campaigns. Tom Carper ran positive, issue-oriented campaigns, avoiding opportunities to personally attack his opponents. He set the pattern for this campaign style in 1982 when he refused to take advantage of Tom Evans's vulnerability after a scandalous relationship with congressional lobbyist Paula Parkinson.
One amusing item in this series is a form letter to Martha Stacy Carper from Michael Castle, then governor of Delaware, asking her, as a "disenchanted Democrat," to switch to the Republican Party. Mrs. Carper's reply is also included (F33).

Topically, by activity or groups of people appearing with Carper.
Photographs, slides, negatives.
Series III.B. Photographs comprises photographic images, slides, and negatives of Congressman Carper with constituents, congressional colleagues, and national and local leaders in a variety of settings. The series also includes photographic portraits of Carper.
Many of the individuals in the photographs are unidentified. The majority of the photographs date between 1983 and 1986. Other photographs are found throughout the collection (see Appendix G -- List of Photographs not in Series III.B. Photographs). For example, Series I.F. Trips includes several photographs from Tom Carper's 1991 trip to Southeast Asia, which remain in their original location in the files, preserving context for the images.
This series of photographic images, though limited to the early years of Carper's congressional career, documents the range of official events and activities attended by Tom Carper in Washington, D.C. and in Delaware. As is evident throughout the papers, Carper kept in constant contact with his constituents, via a variety of activities including town meetings, state festivities, and local organizational meetings. Evidence of many constituent visits to Carper's office is also found in this series.
