    There are also newspaper clippings from 1933 to 1962 on various subjects of interest to Caldwell, including events during his term as Governor.  The clippings are pasted in old volumes of the Congressional Record.  This illustrates a paper conservation practice, common during this period, of reusing old volumes for scrapbooks.
