We want to see your campaign mail!

You have campaign mail arriving every day – and we want to see it!

The Drake University Archives and Special Collections is the division of the University’s library that collects, preserves, and makes accessible materials that relate to the political and social history of Iowa, among other functions.

As part of this mission, the Archives began a project in 2014 to collect caucus-related items for its Iowa Caucus Collection. If you have received any caucus-related materials, including campaign files, video and audio recordings or photographs from events, media kits, and campaign memorabilia (yard signs, t-shirts, buttons, stickers, or other items), please consider sending them to:

Archives and Special Collections
2507 University Avenue
Des Moines, Iowa 50311

Helping the Archives out is fast, easy, and will contribute to ongoing research efforts to understand the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses.

It may seem like junk to you, but it’s a treasure trove of information for us!
