Scope and Content Note

The Union for Democratic Action Administrative File is arranged alphabetically by subject. The material has been kept in the order originally maintained by the UDA office staff, with the exception of alterations made in misleading folder titles. The correspondence within each folder is arranged chronologically by years and months, and is placed first in each folder. Miscellaneous printed and mimeographed materials follow the correspondence and may occasionally overlap the inclusive dates given for the correspondence.

Much of the UDA administrative file relates to purely business and social activities of the organization including arrangements for dinner and luncheon meetings, various topical conferences, speaker's bureau, and tours such as that arranged for Patrick Gordon-Walker in 1946-1947. There is little financial information and only scattered correspondence and minutes of the National Board, although there is correspondence for National Director James Loeb Jr., 1941-1946, and National Chairman Reinhold Niebuhr, 1942-1947, as well as miscellaneous correspondence, 1940-1946.

The UDA actively supported many political, social, and economic issues between 1941 and 1946, such as fair employment policies, anti-discrimination measures, the Bretton Woods Monetary Agreement, the Dumbarton Oaks Conference, civil liberties, and world food supply. Although there is not a great deal of material in this series on any one of these issues, the collection does contain considerable information on UDA's fight for full post-war employment and its support of Henry A. Wallace for the position of secretary of commerce in 1945.

Included in this series are files relating to local UDA chapters, arranged alphabetically by state. The largest single chapter represented is the New York City chapter. The files for this chapter cover much of the same material found in the entire UDA administrative file including full employment activities, New Republic Supplement, Dumbarton Oaks Conference, and issues of minority groups. Also included are files for the New York Administrative Committee, materials relating to publicity, fund raising, and membership activities, and files for various social activities sponsored by this chapter.

There is an overlap of materials in both the New York City chapter files and the National Organization files. Prior to the summer of 1945 both groups occupied the same office in New York City and utilized many of the same staff members. The arbitrary location of certain folders in either location does not always indicate the original file location of these folders.

Most of the work of organizing chapters was by the national director, James Loeb Jr., although various other staff members aided. Two of the organizers were William Dnotes, who worked in the West in the summer of 1945, and Richard Bollings, who worked in the Midwest in the spring of 1947.

This series also includes the files of the Washington Bureau and its director, Thomas R. Amlie. Amlie's New Republic Supplement of May 14, 1942, was sanctioned by UDA and served as a campaign document for the supporters of the Roosevelt administration. Attacks upon the UDA by the Dies Committee in the summer of 1942, and a lack of funds, caused the temporary closing of the Washington office in the winter of 1942. Amlie's correspondence with James Loeb Jr., Howard Y. Williams, and Bruce Bliven is located in the files "Amlie, Thomas" and "New Republic Supplement." [See also Thomas R. Amlie Papers, Mss 452.]

Paul Sifton, a former employee of the National Farmers Union, reopened the Washington Bureau in November 1944. Under his leadership the Washington Bureau's main function was to make known and to influence national legislation. To aid in this project, UDA published the UDA Congressional Newsletter.

In 1946 the UDA Educational Fund Inc. established a London Bureau, headed by David C. Williams. The London Bureau's basic purpose was to inform Americans of the new economic and social experiments being carried out by the post-war government of Great Britain. It also had the function of interpreting American political, social, and economic developments to the British. This was partially accomplished by publishing the UDA London Letter. In addition, Williams arranged for tours for Patrick Gordon-Walker, M.P., and labor leader Jennie Lee.

Series: 2: ADA Administrative File, 1946-1965
Note: Specify series number when requesting boxes.

Physical Description: 96 boxes, 1 volume, and 40 reels of microfilm (35 mm) 
Scope and Content Note

The ADA administrative file is composed of materials the ADA office staff originally maintained as a loosely organized file for the various national directors. In addition, it includes closely related materials added to this series during processing by the staff of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. The ADA administrative file includes correspondence and subject files.

Carbon copies of the outgoing correspondence, May 1948-December 1963, is arranged in reverse chronological order within each folder just as the ADA staff filed them. The files for March-April 1952, and for the years 1956-1958, are lacking, while the folder for March 1953, is incomplete. In 1949 only carbons of the letters of James Loeb Jr., executive secretary, and his assistant, John F.P. Tucker, are included; but by the 1950's other staff members filed carbons of all or some of their correspondence, both important and routine. Some correspondence is filed within the subject files including outgoing telegrams (1947-1953).

Incoming correspondence, 1948-1956 is arranged alphbetically within the subject files, including miscellaneous correspondence filed under "Correspondence, miscellaneous".

The subject files are arranged alphbetically. The correspondence within the subject files is arranged chronologically by month and placed first in each folder. Miscellaneous printed and mimeographed materials follow the correspondence and may occasionally overlap the inclusive dates given for the correspondence.

The subject files include correspondence of various staff members and national officers such as: Francis Biddle, 1950-1951; Evelyn Dubrow, 1947-1949; Violet Gunther, 1950-1963; Leon Henderson, 1947-1952; Edward Hollander, 1947-1963; Hubert H. Humphrey, 1947-1963; Charles M. LaFollette, 1947-1949; Richard A. Lambert, 1960-1964; James Loeb Jr., 1947-1961; Robert R. Nathan, 1952-1963; Nathalie E. Panek, 1947; Sheldon Pollock, 1952-1962; Joseph L. Rauh, 1947-1963; John P. Roche, 1962-1963; Eleanor Roosevelt, 1948-1961; Marvin Rosenberg, 1951-1961; John F.P. Tucker, 1946-1952; David C. Williams, 1952; Page Wilson, 1958-1964; Wilson Wyatt, 1947-1959; and Reginald H. Zalles, 1951-1953. A staff organizational chart is located in an appendix to this finding aid.

The initial formation of ADA is represented by correspondence, minutes, reports, and memoranda of the 1947 ADA Organizing Committee. The correspondence and minutes of the National Board (1947-1964), and the Executive Committee (1947-1965) provide a fairly complete guide to the internal workings of the organization. The folders titled National Board, for example, include correspondence with board members regarding agenda for the meetings, attendance at the meetings, and reservations. The minutes include not only the first draft and final mimeographed copy of almost all the Board meetings, but a great deal of supporting material; such as, agenda, attendance lists, pre-meeting reminders, policy statements, and copies of mimeographed reports presented by various ADA officers and staff. These files are most complete for the years 1947, 1948, 1958, and 1960. The files of the National Board contain a duplicate set of only the minutes of the Board, filed separately after the originals.

The heavy emphasis placed upon the formation of new chapters is evidenced by the correspondence, minutes, reports, and memoranda (1947-1964), of the National Committee on Organization. This committee was responsible for organizing new chapters, handling problems relating to the membership, and guiding chapter programs. Much of this responsibility was handled by the various directors of the organization, such as Evelyn Dubrow, Sheldon Pollock, and Richard A. Lambert.

Between 1947 and 1954, the ADA hired a number of chapter organizers to work in various parts of the country. The following is a list of those organizers who are represented in this series, together with the areas in which they worked, and the years.

Adler, Bernard (Box 24)Ohio1950-1951
Anderson, Douglas B. (Box 25)Chicago Organizing Comm.1947-1948
Cronheim, Emily (Box 32)Missouri1951-1952

Hopkins, Alden (Boxes 53, 77-79)Southern Representative1949-1950
Leavy, Leonard L. (Box 57)New Jersey1952-1953
Leuchtenburg, William E. (Box 57)Missouri, Nevada, Colorado1948
McSweeney, Margaret (Box 59)New England1948
Mishnun, Eleanor (Box 63)New England1947-1948
Panek, Natalie E. (Box 72)Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England1947
Payne, Ancil (Box 72)Oregon and Washington (State)1947-1948
Pollock, Sheldon (Box 74)New Jersey and New York1952-1954
Stern, Louis H. (Box 81)California1950
Taylor, Barney B. (Boxes 82, 77-79)Southern Representative1947-1948

Most of these organizers are represented by only one folder of correspondence and field reports; exceptions are Alden Hopkins and Barney B. Taylor, who served at different periods as ADA's southern representative, 1946-1950. Their records have been incorporated into this series and include correspondence, membership lists, weekly reports on the status and organization of new chapters, and reports of the various chapters in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The financial records of ADA from 1947 to 1965 are also included in the administrative files. The financial correspondence and the lists of contributors deal primarily with contributions. There is a complete set of auditor's reports, 1947-1957, and an incomplete set of budget proposals and reports, 1948, 1952-1960. The weekly financial reports and comparative balance sheets provide a good view of ADA's tenuous financial standing. There are also two ledgers (1946-1951), and a journal of chapter income (1948-1949). The files relating to the Corrupt Practices Act, 1947-1958, contain reports to the federal government on all yearly receipts of more than one hundred dollars and all expenditures of more than ten dollars. The chapter quota file contains general correspondence (1950-1957), and files, arranged alphabetically by state and city, for numerous major chapters. These files also relate to the transferral of chapter quota fees and often include lists of chapter members.

ADA has always had a great deal of difficulty in financing its various programs. In its early years many of the larger unions, such as the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, the International Association of Machinists, the American Federation of Labor (AFL), the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, the Congress of Industrial Organizations, the Textile Workers Union of America (TWUA), and the United Automobile Workers Union (UAWU), helped support the work of the organization. Promotional mailings, pamphlets, and various types of social events have been utilized to raise additional funds. Files relating to labor unions and these attempts to raise additional funds are located in this series, usually under the union.

Other large segments of material in the administrative file include the correspondence and minutes of the Businessmen's Council of ADA (1954-1961), and the Trips Abroad files (1949-1965), concerning yearly foreign study trips organized and conducted by ADA.

Physical Description: 48 boxes and 23 reels of microfilm (35 mm) 
Scope and Content Note

The ADA Chapter Files contain the record of the activities of the various ADA chapters throughout the country arranged alphbetically by state. There are also files at the end of the series dealing with ADA's internationally based membership which seems to have been largely located in Paris, as well as general correspondence the national organization had with its various chapters.

The file contains correspondence dealing with local and national political action; internal organizational rivalries; personnel problems, correspondence with the members; invitations to ADA social affairs; printed propaganda for local and national elections and issues; lists of contributions and contributors; and mimeographed financial reports, press releases, minutes of board meetings, and constitutions. The states with the largest files are: New York, California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, and Illinois; with the remaining states having relatively smaller files.

With the exception of New York, within each state the general state files are first, followed alphabetically by the city, county, and district chapter. Within each folder the material is arranged chronologically by months. States where there are numbered assembly or congressional districts the materials are filed chronologically by the number of the district at the end of that state's file.

Some city chapter records may also be filed at the state level, for example records for the Detroit chapters can also be found under the general Michigan materials. The New York State files are not separated by chapter; therefore, the files are arranged chronologically.

The records for the years 1948-1952 are more complete than those for the later years, 1953-1965. The following list provides the year and month, and the location of each convention.

The subject folders concern a variety of matters, such as: invitations, negotiations for speakers, speeches, correspondence with local chapters about delegates, the financial aspects of arranging a convention, correspondence organizing policy formulating commissions (for example: political policy commission, domestic policy commission, foreign policy commission, constitutional commission), copies of commission resolutions, replies from those invited, and general post-convention correspondence. Much of the correspondence in the policy commission folders for the various conventions relates to the leading liberals of the day and concerns the issues in which they were most involved.

Series: 5: Legislative File, 1946-1964
Note: Specify series number when requesting boxes.

Physical Description: 57 boxes and 21 reels of microfilm (35 mm) 
Scope and Content Note

The ADA Legislative File contains most of the source material produced by the legislative representative for use by ADA in its lobbying activities, principally in Washington, D.C. It is composed of correspondence, printed and mimeographed materials, notes, drafts, press releases, and reports. The scope of ADA's lobbying activities is quite varied. Interest areas include, but is not limited to, civil rights, cloture, small business, disarmament, electoral reform, aid to education, full employment, public housing, social security, and foreign relations.

This series also contains folders relating to various ADA staff members who served as legislative representatives, including: David Cohen (1963-1964), John J. Gunther (1949-1957), Violet Gunther (1949-1957), Edward E. Hollander (1956-1959), David D. Lloyd (1947-1951), and William L. Taylor (1959); and ADA officers, Samuel Beer (1957-1961), Leon Henderson (1947), Hubert H. Humphrey (1948-1960), Robert R. Nathan (1953), Joseph L. Rauh (1951-1962), Marvin Rosenberg (1953-1957), and Wilson Wyatt (1947-1948).

The series is arranged alphabetically, then chronologically by month within each folder, sometimes in reverse chronological order. The following list indicates whether the contents of any particular folder contain just mimeographed research material, or some correspondence. Those folders that list just dates contain only mimeographed materials, while those labeled "correspondence" include correspondence as well as mimeographed and printed materials. In this series, the printed and mimeographed material is filed in chronological order with the correspondence, but the contents list only provides the inclusive dates of the correspondence, dates which are often overlapped by those of other material within the folder.
