Scope and Contents

This series documents general political activities in which DRD was involved. These included Democrats for Good Government, a group organized in the late 1950s to oppose the regular Democratic machine and of which DRD was president. Also included is DRD's work for Kenneth Gibson's campaign for Mayor of Newark in 1970, and New Jersey Citizens for McGovern during this 1972 presidential campaign. (DRD was treasurer for the latter.) Also included in this series is DRD's essay, "Basic ideas: Reinhold Niebuhr," reflecting his underlying political philosophy.
