Scope and Content Note

During the almost forty years she served as a public relations consultant in Atlanta, Helen Bullard conducted the political campaigns of over one hundred sixty-five office seekers. The vast majority of these proved to be successful. This section of the subject files contains materials relating to campaigns she conducted, advised, or closely observed from 1968 to 1978. Campaign records from Wyche Fowler's elections to president of the Atlanta City Council and Congress, Panke Bradley’s efforts to gain a seat on the City Council, and Max Cleland's election to the Georgia House of Representatives provide insights into Bullard's method of running campaigns. Campaign advertisements, correspondence, financial records, newspaper clippings, notes regarding campaign strategies, photographs, speeches and public announcements are among the materials filed here. Though the records are not always extensive, the variety of candidates and races she worked for is apparent. During much of the 1970s, Bullard was in ill health and her prime campaigning days were past.

A few of the folders relate to persons whose campaigns Bullard watched closely but did not actually advise. The file for Jimmy Carter's 1976 presidential race is an example. Arrangement is alphabetical by candidate with the election year and office being sought (where possible to determine) included in the folder title. Following the files for candidates are several folders of general election information regarding advertising rates, opinion polls, and election analyses.

Arrangement Note

Arranged in alphabetical order by name, then by record type.
