Background
Edmund Gerald Brown, Sr. was elected as California's thirty-second Governor in November 1958, and he assumed office in January 1959. Beginning early in 1961, the Committee to Re-Elect Governor Brown was organized in Northern California to begin publicizing the Governor's record while in office and to make plans for his reelection campaign. Headquartered in San Francisco under campaign manager Thomas N. Saunders, the Committee coordinated all aspects of the campaign and the activities of all Northern California district and county committees, the numerous volunteer and occupation-related sub-committees, and the speakers bureau. In November 1962, Governor Brown was elected to a second term in office after defeating the Republican candidate Richard M. Nixon.
