This July 17, 1951 communication from Clem H. Sehrt, Chairman of the Regular Democratic Organization indicates that there were political implications regarding the makeup of the Charter Committee. It also presents a somewhat different interpretation of charter-making in the twentieth century than the one presented in this exhibit. Interestingly, though, the remaining pages of Sehrtís report spell out an agenda for charter revision that differed little from the document that was finally adopted.
