Walter J. Brown papers by Walter J Brown ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Walter J. Brown papers consists of advertisements, articles, artifacts, audiovisual materials, campaign materials, cartoons, clippings, correspondence, a day book, editorials, executive orders, galley proofs, journals, laws and legal documents, a ledger, legislative bills, lists, maps, minutes, petitions, postcards, photographs, publications, reports, scrapbooks, speeches, telegrams, transcripts, and other items. The Walter J. Brown papers document his media career in and his government service with the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion during World War II and with the U.S. Department of State. There is also material relating to his personal life; his interest in politics; his role in the economic development of Spartanburg, S.C.; and the writing of his two books on J.J. Brown / Tom Watson and James F. Byrnes. Of particular interest are the journals Brown kept between April 1943 and November 1945. They include information on the day-to-day activities of the State Department and of OWMR; politics, especially the potential vice presidential candidacy of James F. Byrnes in 1944; and the London and Potsdam Conferences. The latter are supplemented by notes taken at both conferences filed with the journals and journal extracts in folders relating to Byrnes. There are also two sets of transcripts, denoted as "A" and "B," that were probably created in the 1970s or early 1980s. These are less word-for-word transcriptions of the journals than re-workings of them, probably for use in "James F. Byrnes of South Carolina: A Remembrance." Transcript "B" tends to be a little more detailed than transcript "A." There is extensive documentation of Brown's interest and involvement in politics in the papers. In addition there are political correspondence files and others materials related to elections. There are materials relating to political figures, presidential inaugurations, and political party conventions (attended by Brown). The papers include materials to specific political conventions are the Democratic National Conventions of 1944, 1948, 1956, 1976, and 1988 as well as the Republican National Conventions of 1976 and 1988. However, there are only a few documents concerning the election of 1960. Brown also acted as a public relations consultant to Burnet Maybank's 1941 Senatorial campaign; Strom Thurmond's 1948 presidential campaign and his 1950 and 1954 senatorial campaigns; and Donald Russell's 1958 gubernatorial campaign. All of these campaigns are fully documented in the collection

James F. Byrnes papers by James F Byrnes ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The James F. Byrnes papers consist of advertisements, architectural drawings, articles, artifacts, audiovisual materials, campaign materials, certificates, clippings, correspondence, editorials, executive orders, galley proofs, journals, laws and legal documents, legislative bills, lists, maps, microfilm, minutes, petitions, political cartoons, postcards, photographs, publications, reports, scrapbooks, speeches, telegrams, transcripts, and other material. Material in this collection cover the period 1831-2007, with the bulk of the material covering the period midway through his first term as U.S. Senator in 1933 to his death in 1972. The James F. Byrnes papers document his career as a U.S. Senator, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Director of the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion (OWMR) during World War II, U.S. Secretary of State and Governor of South Carolina. There is also material relating to his personal life; to his business affairs, including serving on the board of directors of the Newmont Mining Corporation; to his service on the Clemson College Board of Trustees; to the founding of the James F. Byrnes Foundation, which gives scholarships to South Carolina orphans; and to the writing of his two autobiographies, "Speaking Frankly" and "All in One Lifetime." The papers provide evidence of his close relationship with President Franklin D. Roosevelt as Byrnes helps him pass New Deal legislation during the Depression and then coordinates the home front economy during the World War II. They also document Byrnes' role in the immediate post-war peace process and the beginning of the Cold War, especially concerning U.S. policy on the reconstruction of Germany and its reintegration into world affairs. Finally, the collection has material concerning his growing disenchantment with the Democratic Party over civil rights, his support for Dwight Eisenhower in the 1952 presidential campaign, and his continuing disagreement over Supreme Court decisions against segregation, especially school segregation. Items of particular interest include the shorthand notes Byrnes took at the 1945 Yalta Conference; "W.B.'s book," which are excerpts from the journal Walter Brown kept while accompanying Byrnes to the Potsdam Conference in 1945; and Edwin W. Pauley's journal describing the trip of the U.S. Reparations Mission to what would become North Korea in 1946 and photographs from the Mission's visit to Manchuria that same year. There is also a great deal of material relating to the creation and the progress of the Santee-Cooper Power and Navigation Project from 1933-1941, including of photographs of historic homes in the inundation area, and minutes of the Potsdam Conference, Paris Peace Conference, and meetings of the Council of Foreign Ministers from 1945-1946
