Biographical Information

Curtis Finch Jr. is an Arkansas businessman and philanthropist. The papers in this collection are from his time as campaign manager for Republican Frank White during the 1980 and 1982 elections. Frank Durwood White (1933-2003) was Arkansas's forty-first governor, serving from January 13, 1981, until January 11, 1983. In 1980, he defeated future President Bill Clinton 435,684 to 403,242 after Clinton's first term as Arkansas Governor. Interestingly, White was not considered a real contender for the office until the end of the campaign and therefore began his term without a detailed legislative plan. When challenged by Clinton in the 1982 campaign, White was unable to repeat his victory.
