Scope and Contents
This series contains Thomas Ridge's daily schedules and the files on the vast majority of events he attended during his second term as Governor of Pennsylvania (1999-2001). Governor Ridge's staff created the daily schedules and event files as the events were planned, but there is not event files for every event listed on the daily schedules. Some daily schedules include briefing information on the events from that day. The event files include paper documentation such as correspondence, speeches, programs, and background information. Some files contain photographs from the events. The events include but are not limited to speaking requests, state functions, Republican fundraisers, media interviews, bill signings, legislative meetings, swearing-in ceremonies for state officials, and various board meetings. They occurred primarily in Pennsylvania.

The files in this series are arranged chronologically, with the monthly schedules appearing first, then the daily schedules for each month proceeding the individual event files. The material within the files has also been arranged chronologically. Material from the daily schedules has been relocated to the corresponding event file, when applicable. If files in the original order of the events relate to another series, such as the National Governor’s Association, The Community Partnership for Safe Children, or various state departments, they were removed and placed in the corresponding series. Some terms in the titles on the folders have been abbreviated for space but are spelled out in the content list, the most frequent abbreviation being "PA" for "Pennsylvania."
