Scope and Content

This series contains outgoing correspondence, intra-office memoranda and state-wide memoranda from Governor Matheson and his office staff to constituents, state and local governmental offices, and organizations within and outside of Utah. The correspondence reflects the Governor's position on a variety of issues as well as general administrative tasks of the Governor's staff. Some of the correspondence is written by Governor Matheson in his capacity as chairman of the Western Governors' Policy Office (WESTPO), and as chairman of the National Governors' Association's Subcommittee on Water Management. A significant portion of the correspondence was generated by Kent Briggs, the Governor's Administrative Assistant for State/Federal Affairs, and later the State Planning Coordinator and chairman of the MX Task Force. The files in this series may have served as duplicate records of correspondence found in other series, created for the effective management of the duties of the Governor's office; it is uncertain how much of the correspondence in this series is unique and how much is duplicated in other series containing Matheson's correspondence. This series includes a small amount of incoming correspondence, filed with its related outgoing correspondence.

This series contains correspondence regarding board and commission appointments, declined invitations, "thank-you's" for invitations, transportation/highway issues, Interstate 15, air pollution, energy conservation, sales tax, food tax, taxes in general, flooding, water projects (including the Central Utah Project), the film "Life of Brian", the state and federal budget, affirmative action, the Equal Rights Amendment, the death penalty, Weteye nerve gas bombs, MX missiles, nuclear testing, nuclear waste, wilderness designations, the Sagebrush Rebellion, Project BOLD, and other land management issues.

Besides Governor Matheson and Kent Briggs, additional staff members responsible for generating correspondence in this series include Beth Jarman, Administrative Assistant for Constituent Services (early 1977); Dolly Young, Administrative Assistant for Constituent Services (1977); Emilie Charles, Administrative Assistant for Constituent Affairs (1981), Administrative Assistant for Legislative and Community Issues (1982), and Administrative Assistant for Human Resources and Legislation (1982); Michael A. Youngren, Administrative Assistant for Media Relations (1977); Maggie Wilde, Press Secretary (1978); Alene Bentley, Press Secretary (1981); Micheal Graham, Executive Assistant; Jo Lee Norris, Scheduler Coordinator (1977); Nancy Adamson, Scheduling Coordinator (1981); Carole Hamlett, Executive Secretary (1977); Ken Olson, MX Coordinator for Utah (1981); various Administrative Assistants for Community Relations; and various administrative aides. The dates shown above in parenthesis are the first dates found for correspondence generated by that person with that title.
