The University of Washington has collected and digitized a wide variety of resources about Upton Sinclair's EPIC Campaign, including campaign stories, newspaper cartoons, news headlines, and much more.

From the University of Washington website:

Upton Sinclair's 1934 campaign for governor of California has been called "the Campaign of the Century." One of the most dramatic and influential contests in California history, it helped change the political landscape of the nation.

This project explores the campaign and the End Poverty in California (EPIC) program that captured international attention in 1934. Here you will detailed accounts and a wealth of primary sources, including political cartoons, newspaper and magazine articles, campaign pamphlets, pages from Upton Sinclair's Epic News (the campaign newspaper), and Upton Sinclair's writing during and after the campaign.
