The United Republicans of California (UROC) was founded in 1963 by California State Assemblymen Bruce Reagan and Joe Shell and was developed to promote the principles of freedom and the Constitution in the United States. Their influence has aided conservative politicians such as Barry Goldwater, John Ashbrook, and Ronald Reagan. These records span from 1962 to 1973 and contain materials produced by the United Republicans of California, including political pamphlets, brochures, meeting minutes, correspondence and newspaper and other press clippings.
The United Republicans of California (UROC) was a grassroots Republican volunteer organization founded in 1963 by Assemblymen Bruce Reagan and Joe Shell. An organization composed of volunteers, UROC was developed as both an alternative to establishment Republican organizations within California and as a platform to elect Republican politicians who shared UROC's conservative Constitutional views. Their goals included promoting the principles of freedom and the Constitution, recruiting and registering Republican voters in California, and aiding in the election of Republican candidates who adhere to those principles. UROC did not gain much traction historically.
