The collection consists of the 1963 California Constitution Revision Commission files collected by Donald H. Pflueger while
he served as a member of the commission including agendas, minutes, memorandums, correspondence and background material.
California's first Constitution was adopted in 1849, and the second Constitution was adopted in 1879. This second Constitution
was very detailed and quite lengthy. Many unsuccessful attempts subsequently were made to revise the 1879 constitution. Between
1879 and 1962 the Constitution was amended over 300 times, increased from 16,000 to 75,000 words and became the fourth longest
constitution in the world.
