This is a preliminary finding aid for an unprocessed collection. Some
portions of the collection consist of unfoldered materials.
Scope and Content of the Papers
Newspaper clippings make up much of the David Worley papers. Almost
all of the collection is from the 1988 and 1990 Congressional races. The Worley
campaign staff collected extensive information on Gingrich, so newspaper
clippings appear throughout the files, some dating to the congressman’s
early career. Gingrich campaign letters to his supporters also appear
throughout the collection. Also included is information on Worley’s
campaign platforms, and correspondence with supporters and other Democratic
officials, some of them national figures like Pat Schroeder. Some rough drafts
of speeches and schedules also appear in the collection, as does campaign
material from both the Worley and Gingrich operations. The titles are precisely
as they appeared, and much of the collection is unsorted.
Biographical Note about David Worley
David Worley, an Atlanta attorney, ran unsuccessful Congressional
campaigns against Republican Newt Gingrich in 1988 and 1990. In 1990 Worley
came within a few percentage points, or a few hundred votes, of unseating
Gingrich. Worley was born September 30, 1958 and was educated in Spalding and
Clayton county schools. He graduated first in his class from Jonesboro High
School, where he served as class president, and was a National Merit Scholar
and a STAR student. Worley received a government degree from Harvard
University, graduating with honors. He received his law degree from the
University of Virginia School of Law after working as an aide to former Georgia
congressman Elliott Levitas.
