The history of the Platte County Democratic Central Committee has been preserved in two records books that started in 1902.  They include minutes of the monthly meetings and descriptions of events and activities.  These books have been donated to the Platte County Historical Society and will be available to the public upon request.

Before the books were donated,  a list of highlights and important events was complied.  This document also contains a list of PCDCC chairpersons from 1902 to the present.  The list is available here.

Scans were made of some interesting entries from 1902 to 1985 and are available for viewing here.

Note that the minutes are not complete and are being updated.
