             Historical note 
             The 1944 Kentucky General Assembly passed a resolution calling for a convention to draw up a new constitution for Kentucky. The question was put to the voters in a 1947 referendum, but not enough support was gained for the constitutional convention. In 1948, a Constitutional Review Commission was established. Efforts to enact its recommendations for change by amendment were also unsuccessful. A call for a convention to revise only certain areas of the constitution, which was made in 1960, failed at the polls, too. The 1964 General Assembly created a Constitution Revision Assembly to write a new constitution for consideration by the voters. 
             Kentuckians for a Better Constitution, a group favorable to the revised constitution, was organized to acquaint Kentuckians with the provisions of the constitution written by the Constitution Revision Assembly. Gilbert W. Kingsbury was the educational coordinator of the organization. The new charter did not sway the voters, and the 1966 referendum on its merits had the same results as the earlier efforts. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             The Kentucky Constitutional Revision records contain correspondence, newspaper clippings, articles and speeches, promotional literature, reports, posters, and other materials relating to unsuccessful attempts to revise Kentucky's 1891 constitution. The clippings include information on the Constitution Revision Assembly, as well as other political activities related to the revision of the constitution. A portion of the records is devoted to the correspondence, news releases, membership lists, polls and other material of Kentuckians for a Better Constitution. Much of this group's records deal with the activities of Gilbert Kingsbury, the educational coordinator for the organization. The records also include photographs of Bert T. Combs and John B. Breckinridge, and clippings from the Central Press Clippings Service, Indianapolis. The correspondence contains letters from John Breckinridge and Wilson Wyatt to Lawrence S. Thompson.
