Historical Note

The Committee on Political Education is an official committee of the AFL-CIO and serves as its political arm. The committee is the result of the merger between the AFL's Labor's League for Political Education and the CIO's Political Action Committee on the national level in 1955 and in Texas in 1957. Officers during the years represented by this collection included president Harry Hubbard and secretaries-treasurer Sherman Fricks and Joe D. Gunn. The COPE convention is held biennially, alternating with the Texas AFL-CIO convention.
