Description

Series 6, Stevenson Campaigns, 1952-1960, is arranged chronologically by year and alphabetically thereunder, and includes correspondence, press releases, speeches, scripts, financial information and reference files. The material details Ball's involvement with Stevenson's two presidential campaigns. Before the official launch of Stevenson's campaign in 1952, Ball established Project Wintergreen to feed Stevenson's name to the press. The Project Wintergreen material chronicles the work of Ball, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Adam Yarmolinsky, and Allen Harris to promote their unofficial candidate. Their disappointment was evident when Stevenson stated on April 16, 1952 that he could not accept the Democratic nomination. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. wrote to Ball that same day that it had been great while it lasted and next time they should try it with a candidate. Stevenson later reversed himself and accepted the party's nomination. Ball served as executive director of Volunteers for Stevenson during the 1952 campaign and later served as his director of public relations during the 1956 campaign.
