The majority of the rest of the material consists of papers that Eisenstein delivered at academic conferences. These papers include reports on patterns of campaign finance in Pennsylvania state elections. These papers, reports, and studies analyze information contained in State Campaign Expense files, created by the Bureau of Comissions, Elections, and Legislation in Pennsylvania's Department of State. Fifty-five additional cubic feet of Dr. James Eisenstein's papers are held at Penn State University.
