The Missouri Campaign Spending Reform Records (1969-1977) document Missourians for Honest Elections (MHE) involvement in election campaign finance reform from 1974-1977. Contents also include Wilhelmina Roberts' lobbying effort for passage of a campaign reform bill in the Missouri 77th General Assembly. When that legislature failed to act in 1974, Mrs. Roberts helped to organize the initiative petition drive and became an active participant in MHE. The collection consists of correspondence, working papers for Senate and House bills, court files of lawsuits, speeches, memos, minutes, manuals, press releases, rules and resolutions, candidates reporting forms, newsletters, articles, and newspaper clippings.
