COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

The papers of Philleo Nash mostly relate to his career as a government official, which included service in the Office of War Information during World War II, as an assistant on President Harry S. Truman’s White House staff, as Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, and as Commissioner of Indian Affairs for Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. The papers also contain information regarding Nash’s involvement in Wisconsin politics and his career as an anthropologist. Both in and out of public office, Nash’s activities reflected his longtime interest in the welfare of American Indians and other racial and ethnic minority groups in the United States.

The collection is arranged in twelve series and a number of subseries. The first six series, comprising the bulk of the collection, were donated to the Truman Library by Mr. Nash in 1970. The first series, the Office of War Information File, contains correspondence, memoranda, reports, newspaper clippings, other printed materials, and press releases mostly compiled by Nash during his service in the Office of War Information (OWI) as Assistant to the Deputy Director and, later, as Special Assistant to the Director of the Domestic Branch. Nash’s duties at the OWI included providing liaison between that wartime propaganda agency and the White House, with particular responsibility for monitoring race relations and racial tensions on the home front. His OWI papers include extensive information on African-Americans and other minority groups during World War II; racial conflict and tensions in the United States; press coverage of the war in foreign language newspapers; and wartime rumors that circulated among the public. The series includes examples of wartime U.S. propaganda in the form of publications and radio scripts emphasizing the barbarism of the enemy, as well as public opinion surveys related to the war effort. The series consists of two subseries, an Administrative Correspondence and Memoranda File and an Alphabetical File: the former consists mostly of letters and memoranda written by Nash and others regarding wartime morale and the work of the OWI, while the latter, which is substantially larger, includes a wide variety of memoranda, printed materials, reports, and press releases relating to wartime propaganda and problems on the home front.

The second series, the White House File, contains correspondence, memoranda, newspaper clippings, press releases, speeches, reports, and other items pertaining for the most part to Nash’s work as a Special Assistant and later, Administrative Assistant to President Truman from 1946 to 1953. Most of the materials in this series reflect Nash’s responsibility on the White House staff for issues involving racial and ethnic minorities. Many documents are filed under such subject headings as “Civil Rights,” “FEPC,” “Indians,” and “Minorities.” The series includes an especially large amount of information regarding African-American leaders and organizations, racial discrimination in education and housing, and related issues such as segregation in the armed forces and lynching. There is also information in this series regarding Jewish, Japanese-American, and Spanish-speaking minorities in the United States. This focus is further reflected in drafts of speeches by President Truman relating to civil rights, and information about the political aspects of the civil rights issue, particularly during the 1948 and 1952 campaigns.

The third series, the Association on American Indian Affairs File I, contains materials relating to Nash’s role as a longtime director and member of that organization, which was known until 1946 as the American Association on Indian Affairs. The series includes correspondence, press releases, reports, printed materials, and minutes of meetings concerning the organization’s activities, the termination of federal supervision of various Indian tribes, legislation affecting American Indians, legal representation, and Indians in Alaska. Much of the correspondence in this series dates from Nash’s service on the organization’s executive committee in 1953-54.

The fourth series is the Democratic Party of Wisconsin File. It contains printed materials, correspondence, minutes of meetings, press releases, speeches and speech drafts, statistics, and financial records pertaining to Nash’s political activities in Wisconsin, especially his service as chairman of the Democratic Party in the state from 1955 to 1957, and his successful campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin in 1958. The series includes extensive correspondence with Nash during his tenure as chairman, as well as information regarding Democratic state conventions, election campaigns, relations with the Democratic National Committee, and political issues.

The fifth series, the Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin File, includes correspondence, memoranda, printed materials, press releases, legislation, speeches and speech drafts, invitations, and daily logs of callers relating to Nash’s service as Lt. Governor from 1959 to 1961, with information concerning civil rights, the Democratic Advisory Council, the 1960 Democratic National Convention, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, Indian affairs, farm problems, taxes, the University of Wisconsin, congressional voting records, and Nash’s continuing interest in anthropology. Included in this subseries are materials documenting Nash’s support for Senator Hubert Humphrey in the 1960 Wisconsin presidential primary; his subsequent support for the Democratic presidential nominee, Senator John F. Kennedy; his association with Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson; and his unsuccessful campaign for reelection as Lt. Governor in 1960. The series is comprised of twelve subseries: 1) the General File, which is the largest subseries; 2) the Correspondence File I, consisting mostly of letters dating from 1958-59; 3) the Correspondence File II, consisting mostly of letters dating from 1960; 4) the Personal Correspondence File I, consisting mostly of letters dating from 1958-59; 5) the Personal Correspondence File II, consisting mostly of letters dating from 1960; 6) the Invitations File; 7) the Legislative File; 8) the Lieutenant Governor—Campaign for Reelection File; 9) the Publications File; 10) the Speech Material File; 11) the State of Wisconsin File; and 12) the Cross References File.

The sixth series in the collection, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs File, contains materials pertaining to Nash’s service as head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1961 to 1966. The series includes correspondence, speeches and speech drafts, printed materials, and other items. It is comprised of ten subseries: a Personal File; a Correspondence File; a Speech File; a Task Force File; a 1962 Trip File; a 1963 Trip File; a 1964 Trip File; a 1965 Trip File; a Travel Vouchers File; and a Cross References File. As is apparent from this list, the series contains extensive documentation of Nash’s travels as Commissioner of Indian Affairs, reflecting the importance that he attached to personal interaction with Native Americans and visits to Indian communities throughout the U.S. The series also contains information regarding a shift in federal Indian policy during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, the movement away from earlier efforts aimed at the “termination” of government responsibility for individual tribes, and Nash’s role in this development.

After the death of Philleo Nash in 1987, the Truman Library received further donations of his papers. The archives staff decided to add these accessions to the collection as new series, instead of filing them in the existing series. The donations received after 1987 comprise the last six series in the collection, beginning with series number seven, the Chronological File. The Chronological File contains copies of outgoing correspondence dating from October 1942 to March 1966. It includes materials relating to Nash’s service with the OWI, on President Truman’s White House staff, as Lt. Governor of Wisconsin, and as Commissioner of Indian Affairs. Although most of the correspondence in this series is from Nash, many of the earlier letters and memoranda bear the names of officials for whom Nash worked, such as OWI Director Elmer Davis, Deputy Director Leo C. Rosten, and (on the White House staff) David K. Niles, an Administrative Assistant to the President. Along with official correspondence, the series includes some personal correspondence as well as press releases and other items.

The eighth series, the Association on American Indian Affairs File II, contains further items documenting Nash’s involvement with the Association on American Indian Affairs. The correspondence, memoranda, reports, and minutes of meetings in this series are similar to the materials in the third series, but date from a later period, extending from 1954 to 1977. As in the earlier series, the materials relate to the problems of American Indians and the activities of the Association under its president, Oliver La Farge.

The Subject File, the ninth series in the collection, contains correspondence, newspaper clippings, other printed materials, legislation, press releases, reports, appointment calendars, financial records, and handwritten notes relating to various aspects of Nash’s career. The largest sections of this series concern Nash’s service as Commissioner of Indian Affairs and as Lt. Governor of Wisconsin. Included are congratulatory letters received by Nash upon his appointment as Commissioner; letters of appreciation he received following his resignation from that post; his writings, speeches, and statements as Commissioner; transcripts of his oral history interviews with the Kennedy and Johnson Libraries; and information regarding Indian culture, education, economic development, litigation, legislation, and grievances from the 1950s to the 1970s. In connection with Nash’s service as Lt. Governor, the series includes copies of all bills introduced in, and laws enacted by, the Wisconsin legislature during his term of office; information on farm problems and higher education in Wisconsin; and materials concerning his campaigns for Lt. Governor in 1958 and 1960. The Subject File also contains information relating to Nash’s interest in joining Commander Richard Byrd’s Antarctic expedition in 1928, his wartime service with the OWI, his response to allegations of disloyalty resulting from anticommunist investigations, and his support for Hubert Humphrey’s presidential campaigns in 1960 and 1968. Also included in the series are minutes, transcripts, and memoranda documenting the work of the President’s Committee on Civil Rights during the Truman administration.

The Printed Materials File is the tenth series in the collection. It contains a variety of printed items, including pamphlets, booklets, reports, articles, and legal briefs. Most of these materials deal with civil rights and Indian affairs. Included is a copy of the amicus curiae brief prepared by the Truman administration in December 1952 for Brown v. Board of Education and related school segregation cases, which were scheduled for argument before the U.S. Supreme Court during that term. The series also contains information regarding politics, Puerto Rico, and presidential staffs, as well as a 1962 article on Nash from Current Biography.

The eleventh series, the McCarthyism File, contains correspondence, printed materials, press releases, and other items relating to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin and his role in spreading accusations that Philleo Nash was a communist or communist sympathizer. The series includes extensive information concerning the McCarthy-Nash controversy, the loyalty investigation of Nash, the effect of these allegations on Nash’s campaigns for Lt. Governor in 1958 and 1960, and the involvement of Jean Nash, Philleo’s sister, in anti-McCarthy activities in Wisconsin.

The twelfth and final series in the collection is the General File. It contains printed materials, correspondence, and other items relating to Nash’s career as an anthropologist and public servant. Included in the series are drafts of an unpublished memoir by Nash, “Anthropologist in the White House,” and other published or unpublished writings by or about him.

The Truman Library also has a collection of Nash’s files from his years in the Truman White House. A finding aid for these files is available online. The Library’s oral history interview with Nash is also available online.
