Quantity: 4.0 c.f. (10 archives boxes)

Abstract: Papers of James Auer, a Wisconsin newspaper journalist and writer. Included are motion picture and television publicity; fragmentary records of the American Association of Sunday and Feature Editors (AASFE), an organization designed to improve Sunday newspapers and weekend feature sections and magazines; writings; and correspondence. Little of Auer's own newspaper writings are included; rather the journalism-related papers consist of various files Auer accumulated. Among these are publicity files containing press releases, biographies, and summaries for several motion pictures and television programs. The files are particularly revealing about the publicity techniques used by MGM, United Artists, Universal, Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, and ABC Television. Also included are correspondence, newsletters, and financial, meeting, and membership files for AASFE, a group in which Auer served as treasurer and president. These document the organization's efforts to plan conventions, collect dues, and solicit membership. Writings include variant drafts of plays, stories, and poems authored by Auer, while correspondence consists of personal and business letters from family, friends, and readers. Included with the correspondence are two letters from August Derleth in which he complained that The Capital Times censored his newspaper column.

Abstract: Records of a committee composed of company, union, and neutral representatives which sought remedies to the displacement of workers when Armour and Company modernized its meatpacking operations and closed plants in the 1950's and 1960's. Financed by Armour, the committee commissioned studies and surveys; made recommendations to minimize displacement, some of which were incorporated into labor contracts between Armour and the Meat Cutters and Packinghouse Workers union; and provided direct assistance to workers in several cities where Armour plants closed. The collection consists chiefly of correspondence, memoranda, minutes, clippings, reports, questionnaires, and statistics. Administrative records, reports from committee studies and projects, and a subject file on labor issues comprise about half the collection. The remaining papers are files on plant closings where the committee actively assisted workers being laid off. Of these, committee projects at Kansas City and Omaha are particularly well documented.
