C.P. O'Neill Papers, 1969-1980
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The C.P. O'Neill Papers were received unorganized and were arranged into two series:

SERIES I: Personal - This series includes biographical materials, correspondence, family memorabilia and scrapbooks. The folders are arranged alphabetically by subject.

SERIES II: Mayoral - This series primarily contains material from O'Neill's two terms as mayor of Grand Forks, 1972-1980. The folders contain personal papers, city documents, newspaper clippings, desk diaries and photographs. The collection does not contain a complete day to day record of his terms of office. Instead, it reflects high points in his mayoral career and significant issues related to the city of Grand Forks. The Southside Annexation issue of 1973-1975 and the Columbia Road Overpass, 1969-1980, are well documented. O'Neill's re-election campaign of 1976 file contains information about city issues of the time.
