The "Answer Desk" of President Ford's 1976 campaign committee, the President Ford Committee, compiled this fact book for use by persons campaigning on behalf of the President. It contains background information on the Fords and Senator Robert Dole, along with information on the President's programs, accomplishments, and views on issues.
The Ford Library staff scanned and converted to electronic form the September
8, 1976 version of the Fact Book (a March 5, 1976 version was used during
the primaries). Throughout the Fact Book, the Answer Desk staff used underlining
to emphasize major points. In converting this information for use on the
Web, all underlined passages have been converted to italics and underlined
headings have been converted to bold.
