Mr. Henry A.L. Brown Constitutional Convention papers

Scope & content

The Henry A.L. Brown Constitutional Convention papers includes text of resolutions as introduced 1-288, subsequent drafts of certain resolutions, meeting notices, agendas, memorandum from the convention president, and various versions of the 1986 constitution as drafted within the course of the convention. Those files containing drafts of resolutions also contain supporting documentation such as memos from the styling and drafting committee, committee reports, correspondence in support or against a specific resolution, notes from the delegate, and newspaper clippings. In many cases more than one resolution was introduced on a particular topic so several resolutions may be combined in a folder according to subject.
