Abstract: Papers, correspondence, campaign materials, personal effects, and other materials relating to the life of Judith A. Herndon of Wheeling, who graduated from Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy, practiced law, served in the House of Delegates and State Senate, and was state campaign manager for the 1976 and 1980 presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan. On November 19, 1980, Senator Herndon died at age 39. The Herndon family and Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy worked to create a memorial room at the school, which housed displays on Senator Herndon's life and her manuscript papers. With the closing of Mount de Chantal and the move of the remaining Sisters to Georgetown, the family worked with Margaret Brennan and Sister Joanne Gonter to transfer the collection to the State Archives.
