The papers document Applegate's close working relationship with George Romney in his campaign for the presidency, as staff member in the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and as one of his staff at the National Center for Voluntary Action.
The collection has been divided into six series: Chronological, 1963-1972; Background Files, 1963-1973; U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Affairs, 1969-1972; National Center for Voluntary Action, 1969-1973; Voluntary Action Background Files, 1969-1973; and European Trip, 1970. The researcher should note that the great value of the Applegate papers is as a supplement to the various series in the George Romney collection. The researcher is urged to begin with the inventories to the Romney papers before turning to the Applegate papers.
