Fund for the Republic

The Fund for the Republic was officially incorporated in the state of New York on December 9, 1952 as a nonprofit membership corporation. However, its raison d'etre can be traced back to 1950 when the Ford Foundation recognized that pressures from the political and cultural right threatened to restrict basic freedoms. In an effort to "support activities directed toward the elimination of restrictions on freedom of thought, inquiry and expression in the United States, and the development of policies and procedures best adapted to protect these rights," the Ford Foundation created the Fund for the Republic. The Foundation concluded that the importance of defending and advancing the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights required the undivided attention of a wholly separate organization. Although the Fund's stated objectives were to "help promote within the United States security based on freedom and justice," the Foundation trustees were made aware that the Fund's agenda would include controversial issues such as religious and racial discrimination. Despite the controversial agenda, the Foundation trustees agreed that the Fund would not be subjected to annual reviews by the Foundation nor would it manage any of the Fund's affairs.

The Ford Foundation trustees authorized the officers of the Foundation to establish the Fund for the Republic on October 4, 1951 and made an initial allocation of $1,000,000, enabling its staff to secure a board of directors, and hire attorneys to establish a legal corporation and acquire tax exemption. The search for suitable board candidates was begun by Foundation president Paul Hoffman and associate director Robert Hutchins. Their challenge was to find candidates beyond reproach but more importantly, individuals who were willing to become embattled in the Fund's controversial agenda. Each member also needed to be unanimously approved of by the Ford Foundation trustees.

The Fund's Board of Directors met for the first time on December 10-11, 1952, in New York City, with nine of the fifteen directors and staff members of the Ford Foundation in attendance. The board discussed the Fund's purpose, limitations and relationship to the Ford Foundation. A Planning Committee was formed to comprise a tentative program that would be submitted to the Ford Foundation in an effort to receive a large sustaining grant. Other orders of business included the election of David Freeman, on loan from the Ford Foundation, as temporary president and secretary of the Fund, and the approval of $50,000 granted to the American Bar Association's Special Committee on Individual Rights as Affected by National Security. This Special Committee had originally submitted its grant request to the Ford Foundation but it was deemed more appropriate for the Fund. This Committee was also well equipped to study the legal and procedural aspects of the government's loyalty program and the legal aspects of visa and passport issuance under the McCarran-Walter Act.

The Planning Committee met after the Board meeting on December 10, and opened the meeting with a discussion of what the Fund should be expected to do in its field that other active organizations, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, were not already doing. It was the general feeling that whereas many of the objectives of the Fund were similar to those of the ACLU, the approach should be much broader and the Fund should endeavor to avoid being tagged as a defender of Communists. Throughout the course of several meetings, the Planning Committee concluded that the Fund's primary method of operation would be projects directly sponsored by the Fund and carried out under contractual arrangements and that grants would be made to other organizations, groups and individuals for particular purposes. After completion of the various projects, the Fund would then decide whether or not to implement its educational role through the distribution, via various forms of mass media, of the project results. The Planning Committee also believed that in order to be truly beneficial to the public, a non- academic approach to the projects was required. The Committee outlined three tentative areas as being of special interest to the Fund. These included:

By the time the Fund submitted its tentative program to the Ford Foundation trustees in February 1953, the Fund's board had met three times and elected Paul Hoffman as its chairman. Hoffman had resigned the Ford Foundation's presidency in January. In its statement, the Fund proposed two immediate projects: the American Legacy of Liberty Project, which would provide a clear contemporary statement on the legacy of American liberty; and research into the extent and nature of the internal Communist menace and its effect on our community and institutions. The Planning Committee hoped that the American Legacy of Liberty project would highlight areas where basic freedoms were endangered and in turn lead the Fund to lend its support to the following five areas of immediate interest:

The Foundation trustees, on a motion by Henry Ford II, authorized on February 23, 1953, an additional sum of $14,000,000 to supplement the $1,000,000 granted from the appropriation of 1951. There were two conditions on which payments would be suspended if not met: loss of its tax exempt status or failure to conform to the purpose of the Fund. The Fund had no need to fear the first, for on March 27, 1953 the Fund received a temporary certificate of tax-exemption entitling it to receive a $2,800,000 installment on its total allocation. An unqualified ruling of tax exemption was handed down by the Treasury Department on January 22, 1954.

Clifford Case, a Republican Congressman from New Jersey, was approached by David Freeman on April 22, 1953 to ascertain his interest in becoming president of the Fund. Case agreed but stated he would not be able to assume his duties as President until September. The Board officially appointed Case President of the Fund on May 18, 1953 and a week later he formally accepted. The last piece of the administrative puzzle was in place. The Fund could finally get down to the everyday business of advancing the understanding of civil rights and civil liberties.

The Fund had not even completed its first year of existence when it came under the scrutiny of Congress. Representative B. Carroll Reece cited the newly established Fund as one reason the House needed to reinvestigate the tax-exempt status of foundations. The new House Committee would determine which foundations were using their resources to fund "un-American and subversive activities, for political purposes, or influencing legislation." With its $15,000,000 endowment and its vague description of promoting civil liberties, the Ford Foundation laid the Fund open to misconceptions. Some thought the Foundation was using its financial resources to question the investigative powers of Congress, and the Reece Committee dogged the Fund for over two years. The Fund was constantly being inundated with requests from René Wormser, counsel to the Committee, who asked for the "obstetrical and gynecological facts about the birth of the Fund," its method of operation, and any information that would counter the accusations being made against it. The Fund complied with the requests and though the Reece Committee ultimately could prove no wrongdoing, it accused all large foundations of being involved in a diabolical conspiracy to allow Marxists and internationalists to dominate U.S. policy. This would not be the only time the Fund would be investigated due to its ideology. The Fund's agenda, already deemed somewhat controversial, was about to become even more contentious.

A review of the Fund's first year revealed a long arduous process of determining the minute, but essential administrative details. However, the first year had not been without accomplishments. The Fund had reviewed and turned down forty-six grant applications while approving four grants totaling $174,500 to the American Bar Association, American Friends Service Committee, Columbia University and the Boston chapter of the Voluntary Defenders Committee, Inc. The Fund had also sanctioned several projects under its Study of the Internal Communist Menace project, which were now underway. The new President was settling in and had hired four consultants to advise him on possible projects. Regrettably, Case had only been active as President for six months when he resigned under enormous pressure from President Eisenhower to seek the Republican candidacy for the open Senate seat in New Jersey. The Executive Committee of the board formally accepted Case's resignation on March 16, 1954 but retained him as a consultant, at his regular salary through April 1, until the full board met. Board members George Shuster, Elmo Roper, Erwin Griswold and John Lord O'Brian were charged with finding a new president.

As the main target of a Congressional investigation, it would seem prudent for the board search committee to pick a highly respectable, noncontroversial candidate to fill the vacancy. Instead, they approached one of most controversial figures at that time, Robert M. Hutchins. Hutchins had remained at the Ford Foundation after his friend Hoffman resigned as President and continued to administer his pet projects, such as the Fund for the Advancement of Education, where he had been a target of the political right. Undeterred by the threat of attacks, the board offered Hutchins the position of president of the Fund. He accepted and succeeded Case on June 1, 1954.

Hutchins's effect on the policies and procedures of the Fund was immediate although he remained headquartered in Pasadena. He added additional administrative staff to the New York office, including W. H. Ferry who had conceived the idea of the Fund with Hutchins, hired eleven new consultants, encouraged the board to elect seven new members, and proposed studies on blacklisting, fears of educators, minority housing problems and the mass media, which stretched well beyond the board's internal communist menace agenda. Hutchins streamlined the often cumbersome administrative tasks of the board as well. At the June 30, 1954 meeting, he informed the board he planned to decrease the monthly meetings to quarterly ones and each board member would receive extensive documentation of all proposals and grant recommendations prior to each meeting. Hutchins also received background briefings from his consultants prior to all board meetings, enabling him to answer any and all questions raised on various projects. Hutchins strongly believed preparation would positively affect the board's attitude towards the officers of the Fund and they in turn would look more favorably upon their recommendations. By the end of Hutchins's first year, the Fund's grants and appropriations totaled over $1,600,000. However, Hutchins's daring ideas worried some board members that he was crossing the educational line into propaganda, which could legally jeopardize the Fund's existence.

Hutchins was a brilliant, fearless man with a formidable ego, who was often quite shortsighted when expressing his views. It was Hutchins's opinion that the American people had not received the liberal education needed to ensure the survival of democracy. In fact, this lack of education allowed demagogues like McCarthy to exploit the public. Also, his brusque manner alienated and incited the fury of many. Many of Hutchins's attackers had a difficult time discerning between the approval of Communism and his belief that every American, including Communists and nonconformists, was entitled to equal protection under the Constitution. In 1955, Hutchins and Ferry provoked further criticisms and caused dissension among the Fund's board members when they stated they would not hesitate to hire former Communists or people who had invoked the Fifth Amendment. Days later, the Internal Revenue Service, the Committee on House Un- American Activities, and Senate Internal Security Subcommittee began to investigate the Fund. Although Hutchins was re-elected president at the annual board meeting, his presidency was in jeopardy.

Henry Ford II was barraged with mail and confided to Paul Hoffman that he had been affected by the great many letters expressing disapproval of the Fund. Publicly, Ford questioned the manner in which the Fund had attempted to achieve its stated objections and accused Hutchins and Ferry of poor judgment. Ford also met with Fund board member Erwin Griswold and encouraged him to lead a movement within the board to remove Hutchins and Ferry. Griswold

was deeply troubled by Hutchins and Ferry's statements and believed they irreversibly damaged the Fund's reputation. On December 19, 1955, Griswold wrote to the board and declared it was necessary to remove Hutchins, citing two main reasons: Hutchins's inflexibility in his approach toward civil liberties and his ineffectiveness as a Fund spokesman.

The board met on January 7, 1956 with two major items on the agenda: the fate of Robert M. Hutchins's presidency and a Hutchins memorandum detailing plans for an administrative reorganization of the Fund. Hutchins would move his office from Pasadena to New York, David Freeman would take over Ferry's position of running the New York office, while Ferry would handle specific responsibilities for programs and planning. Hutchins also proposed that a public relations officer be hired and all the officers would report to him. The board approved his memorandum on a trial basis. After thirteen hours of debate, Robert Hutchins was reaffirmed as president but not without ramifications. The board took action to ensure that it, not Robert Hutchins, determined the Fund's policies. All staff recommendations would now have to receive prior approval by legal counsel before being presented to the board, no awards could be allocated without unanimous consent of the board, and a resolution was passed saying no former or active Communist or person who had invoked the Fifth Amendment would ever be employed by the Fund.

The restrictions may have bothered Hutchins in principle but in practice he was already formulating a shift in the Fund's policy. By the spring of 1956, Hutchins had become disenchanted with administering a grant-making institution, and spending large amounts of time and money defending the Fund. He thought the Fund's studies lacked cohesiveness and were simply reactionary measures to an already existing problem. The studies also were based on the false assumption that people understood the underlying ideas of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Thus, a clarification of these "basic issues," the moral and political principles underlying civil liberties and civil rights, was needed as Hutchins stated, "to aid in developing a basis of common conviction in the West and throughout the world, to help to show a pluralistic society how it can reach unanimous devotion to freedom and justice."

Hutchins sent a memorandum to the board on May 4, 1956 recommending that the Board authorize an advisory committee to examine the feasibility and desirability of establishing an institute or council for the study of the theory and practice of freedom. The institute or council would be comprised of men and women, who through group discourse would arrive at common convictions in spite of profound philosophical differences. The institute or council would allow the men and women to gather in a common place, free from all administrative burdens and hold conferences, seminars, debates and discussions. Studies and reports would be made as they were needed in order to promote an understanding of some important problem. Most importantly, the object of the institute would be to promote coherence and intelligibility in the program of the Fund. While Hutchins's recommendations required a transfer of the planning functions of the Fund from the board to a group of thinkers, he presented the proposal in words designed to reassure the directors that their ideas would always be considered and their decision making powers would remain intact.

The board considered Hutchins's proposal at its May 15 meeting. While there was some reluctance, it was hard for the board to refuse Hutchins's request for an advisory committee to explore the idea. Thus an advisory committee of three board members, George Shuster, Meyer Kestnbaum and J. Howard Marshall, and five scholars, Eric Goldman, Robert Redfield, Richard McKeon, Clinton Rossiter, and John Courtney Murray was established. The advisory committee, chaired by Hutchins, met three times during the summer of 1956 and presented a report, signed by the five scholars, to the board on September 6, 1956. The report not only validated Hutchins's earlier memorandum, but argued that the Fund focus on examining the state of the free man within society. Hutchins asked the board at its September 12 meeting for the authority to prepare a plan for implementing the proposal so that at its November meeting the board could determine its practicability and effect on the Fund's activities. His request was granted.

Prior to the November 15 annual meeting of the board, Hutchins mailed each director a forty- four page memorandum endorsing the recommendations of the scholars. His ideas for implementation were laid out in generalities, but it was clear that he was proposing a permanent, self-sustaining center run by a core group of individuals. Hutchins's recommendations were met with dissension from two Fund staff members. David Freeman and Adam Yarmolinsky submitted their own memorandum to the board encouraging it to continue with the Fund's original mandate. Although they agreed with Hutchins in principle, they disagreed with the methods proposed. The memorandum argued that the best way to find a common sense solution was from various approaches employed by different groups not from an individual or a single group of individuals. The Freeman/Yarmolinsky memorandum was not formally considered by the board and both men eventually resigned due to basic policy disagreements. Hutchins was permitted, with the advice of the Advisory Committee and temporary consultants, to reexamine the area of the Fund's concern. The board expected a proposal for studies of one or more of the basic issues at its next meeting.

The board was inching cautiously towards Hutchins idea of a permanent, self-sustaining center but they were unwilling to devote all of the Fund's remaining resources to it. Hutchins was unhappy with the slow progress of the board but realized that such a drastic shift in policy would take time. He presented his proposal in February 1957 to retain full-time consultants to study The Corporation and the Freedom of the Individual, The Common Defense and Individual Freedom, and The Church in a Democratic Society. Also added on the advice of the board was The Labor Union and the Freedom of the Individual. Each of the projects would have advisors and two or more board members as liaison directors. The board allotted $100,000 for Hutchins's proposal, which enabled him to hire ten Consultants. He continued to push the board for approval of his proposal in its entirety but still met with resistance. At its May 1957 meeting, the board passed a resolution stating that the Fund would concentrate on the basic issues for one year. If the studies on the basic issues did not produce significant results, the board was prepared to explore these problems through other methods.

Hutchins was again disappointed and feared the Consultants would be unable to produce the desired results within a year. He pushed forward, meeting with the Consultants seven times throughout the year. Their meetings resulted in the gradual clarification of some basic issues and the publication of four pamphlets. The most surprising result was the overwhelming public interest in the studies. The Fund received numerous demands for information on and about participation in the Basic Issues program. The largest obstacle preventing the establishment of a permanent Center was now removed. The board could no longer claim the studies of the Consultants might be too esoteric. Thus on May 22, 1958, the board appropriated $4 million for a three-year extension of its Basic Issues program. On June 4, 1959, Hutchins announced that the board had voted its remaining resources to establishing the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara, California.

Hutchins's dream had finally been realized. He and other great minds of the period were now free to devote their time to interdisciplinary discourse on the important issues affecting man and the free society. Although the Center might not be able to solve the problems confronting Western civilization, it hoped to identify the problems and offer possible approaches to their solution. The clarification of such complicated issues would be a long and arduous task that would continue, as Hutchins hoped, indefinitely. However, the Center depended too much upon the guidance of Robert M. Hutchins. The Center had never been financially secure but remained solvent because of Hutchins and his reputation. When Hutchins died in 1977, the Center was unable to function independently and was absorbed by the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1979.

The Fund for the Republic, Inc. Records contain the administrative records of this educational corporation from its inception through its evolution into a think tank. The collection consists of various forms of textual material with a sparse selection of graphic and audiovisual materials.

The Archives of the Fund for the Republic are arranged in accordance with the organizational structure of the Fund, which also reflects the original order of the collection. As is typical with most businesses, within each folder the date order of the material runs from most recent date to the earliest, unless otherwise noted. The collection is divided into ten series and is arranged as follows:

The Fund for the Republic Records were donated to the Princeton University Library on December 26, 1963 by the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions of the Fund for the Republic, Inc. Supplementing the Fund for the Republic Records are the papers of Fund board member Eleanor B. Stevenson, donated to the Princeton University Library on August 1, 1966, which were integrated into the Board of Directors series. Princeton reached an agreement with the University of California, Santa Barbara to exchange records. Princeton now holds all the pre-1961 records pertaining to the Fund for the Republic, and UCSB holds the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions records. Also, Princeton transferred material relating to Fund president Robert M. Hutchins's tenure at the Ford Foundation to the Ford Foundation Archives.

A 16mm print of the film Segregation and the South was donated in 2013 by Sarah, William, and George Martin III, children of the film's producer, George Martin, Jr. The accession number associated with this donation is ML.2013.013.

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 1, Minutes, 1952-1961, contains the minutes of all the Board of Directors meetings from 1952 through 1961. There are three distinct sets of minutes: general Board of Directors meetings, Executive Committee, and the Annual Meeting of Members. In general, the board held its annual meeting in November and convened for special meetings throughout the year. The Executive Committee met on an irregular basis, while the Annual Meeting of the Members occurred each November for the sole purpose of electing board members. In accordance with the by-laws, Members of the Corporation were all persons interested in the purpose of the Fund, generally consisting of board members, legal counsel and administrative staff. Each board member was elected into the membership before being elected to the Board of Directors. The minutes are arranged according to type and filed chronologically. Where extant, notices and agendas are included with the minutes. Early meetings revolved around the formulation of policy, election of directors and members, employee issues and finances. As the Fund established itself, the meetings began to take on more substantial issues. The board had final approval over all of the Fund's programs; the staff was only allowed to make recommendations. Therefore, all grants, fellowships, projects and their respective monetary allocations had to be authorized by the board.

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 2, Working Papers, 1952-1961, is arranged chronologically, and supplements the minutes of the Board of Directors by providing detailed information on various grants, fellowships, projects and policy issues raised at meetings. The officers of the Fund reviewed and discussed all grant and fellowship applications received, and then submitted detailed reports of their recommendations for the board's approval or rejection. Every grant and fellowship application, and its relevance, is described within these abstracts. Each member also received mailings of informational material concerning items to be raised at the next meeting, correspondence with active politicos, project progress reports, clippings, and occasional position papers on civil rights and civil liberties.

Early on, the Fund determined that keeping board members informed of the organization's publicity was imperative. It mailed articles from major newspapers to its directors on a regular basis. This collection has a seemingly comprehensive list of every newspaper article mentioning the Fund, between 1955 and 1959. Due to the accessibility of the articles elsewhere, the clippings were discarded. For periods where there are no lists, the clippings have been retained.

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Administration, 1928-1963 [bulk 1951-1961], is divided into three subseries: Correspondence, Congressional Investigations, and Financial and Annual Reports. This series details the inner-workings of the Fund and illuminates the strong characters of its staff. Often referred to as officers, the Fund's small staff was active in every aspect of its administration. Their respect for each other and their work is apparent through the documents contained within this series. Throughout the series, correspondence and memoranda from various Fund staff members, including Robert M. Hutchins, Clifford Case, W.H. Ferry, David F. Freeman, Frank K. Kelly, Edward Reed, Joseph P. Lyford, Hallock Hoffman, Frank S. Loescher, Adam Yarmolinsky, Paul Jacobs, John Cogley and Walter Millis, can be found.

Arrangement

No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Subseries 1, Correspondence, 1928-1963, constitutes the office files of the organization and is arranged alphabetically by the last name of correspondent, organization or subject. In addition to correspondence, it includes articles, memoranda, reports and speeches. Particularly enlightening are the handwritten comments on letters, memoranda, and the like by the officers. They were not afraid to express their opinion and often did so with a dry wit. It was customary for the officers to receive a variety of opinions, internal as well as external, on all major issues relating to the Fund's activities. While the staff was dedicated to the Fund's mission, it is apparent they sought justification for their activities from outside experts and trusted friends. This is particularly true in the case of Frank Kelly, vice-president of public information, who relied heavily upon his mentor, public relations guru Stephen Fitzgerald.

Included in this subseries are Hutchins's Ford Foundation files relating to the development of the Fund. These folders contain such items as internal memoranda, lists of potential board candidates, and the memorandum of grant approval signed by Hutchins, which offer insight into the Ford Foundation's vision of the Fund.

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Subseries 2, Congressional Investigations, 1952-1959, includes correspondence, memoranda, reports, articles, press releases, speeches, and transcripts relating to the Congressional and Treasury Department investigations of the Fund. The House Special Committee to Investigate Tax Exempt Foundations and the House Un-American Activities Committee accused the Fund of using its financial resources for un-American and subversive activities. The HUAC investigation led to a review of the Fund's tax exempt status by the Treasury Department in 1958. Although nothing amounted from the investigations, they forced the Fund to spend large amounts of time and money defending itself. The animosity between the Committees' lead investigators and the Fund is evident in the exchange of correspondence. The Fund was often accused of not complying with the discovery requests or fully disclosing all relevant information pertaining to the Fund's organization, personnel and activities. For the most part, the Fund complied with the requests sending detailed reports but refused, at one point, to release copies of board minutes to the HUAC. The frustration of the Fund's staff and legal counsel with the investigations was evident in a July 2, 1957 letter from Bethuel Webster, the Fund's legal counsel, to Rep. Francis Walter. Webster wrote, "While the Fund will continue to supply on request copies of publications, it is our position that in the future the Fund will not continue to supply from its files internal papers and information not relevant to a proper inquiry."

These investigations were not confined to the hallowed halls of the Capitol, but were played out in the media as well. Each side jockeyed for support from newspapers throughout the country. Scores of letters to newspaper editors explaining the policies and programs of the Fund are included within the files. The media for the most part was sympathetic with the Fund's plight, especially when the House Committees denied the Fund an opportunity to defend itself. The press was also outraged when the HUAC subpoenaed John Cogley, who authored the Fund's study on blacklisting in the entertainment industry. The Committee called Cogley in an effort to force him to reveal his confidential sources, which he refused to do. This clearly violated the First Amendment and the press assailed Chairman Walter.

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Subseries 3, Financial and Annual Reports, 1952-1962, contains statements, ledgers, correspondence, publications and other information documenting the organizations's financial history. This documentation primarily includes annual statements prepared by the Fund's auditors and a detailed ledger of project expenditures. More than two-thirds of the Fund's initial fifteen million dollar endowment was spent prior to the Fund's move to California in 1959. Other financial information can be found in the minutes, working papers and committee subseries of the board of directors series.

Also included in this series are published annual reports. The first president's report was printed in 1955 followed by a three-year report in 1956, two-year in 1958, and a report of the president in 1960. The three-year report provided the most detailed information on the Fund, its policies and programs. A descriptive paragraph on each project and grant approved plus the totals expended are included.

Scope and Contents

Series 3, Grants, 1940-1961 [bulk 1952-1959], is divided into three subseries: Grants Approved, Grant Awards, and Grants Rejected. Each subseries is arranged alphabetically by organization. From the outset the Fund realized that in order to advance its civil rights and civil liberties agenda, it needed to financially aid existing organizations already working within those areas. The Fund sought to assist organizations who were educating people about their civil rights and the precarious state of those rights at that time. The Fund believed these organizations were the most qualified to obtain the facts and their interpretation of the facts would merit the attention of the public.

Scope and Contents

Series 3, Subseries 1, Grants Approved, 1940-1961, consists of grant proposals, approval notices, correspondence, progress and final reports, and audits. These files also provide a rich source of organizational histories. Each applicant often provided the Fund with copies of brochures and articles documenting the activities of their respective organizations.

Those receiving monies from the Fund were a various mix of religious, civil rights, educational, fraternal, and other voluntary organizations. The largest beneficiary was the Southern Regional Council, which received over $700,000, to support their educational programs in race relations throughout the South. As a result, the Southern Regional Council was able to strengthen its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia and staff twelve state affiliates with full-time professional personnel. It should be noted that the Fund was one of the few philanthropic organizations to be active in the explosive arena of racial discrimination, and allocated large amounts of money for this purpose.

Another area of initial interest for the Fund was immigration, although only one grant was made to an immigrant aid organization. The Common Council for American Unity received monies from the Fund to expand its legal representation of immigrants and provide an analysis of the cases it handled. The analysis provided an objective view of how certain provisions in the United States's immigration laws were actually working.

Series 3, Subseries 2, Grant Awards, 1953-1958, contains correspondence, press releases, and announcements regarding four groups who received unsolicited awards from the Fund. These awards were meant to dramatize the progress made in upholding civil rights, and acknowledged individuals, organizations, and communities who had distinguished themselves by the stand they had taken. The town of Waverly, Iowa received $10,000 for accepting the family of black Air Force Captain Virgil A. Daniels into its all-white community; $5,000 to Mrs. Mary Knowles, who refused to speak about her alleged Communist party membership before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1957; $5,000 to Stiles Hall, the Young Men's Christian Association of the University of California at Berkeley for its active observance of the principles of free speech and assembly and its equal treatment of all persons without regard to race or creed; and lastly $5,000 to the University Young Women's Christian Association of Westwood Village, California, for its maintenance of an open platform where all citizens were free to meet and debate, in the vicinity of the University of California at Los Angeles.

Series 3, Subseries 3, Grants Rejected, 1952-1958, a majority of grant applications were rejected for similar reasons. More often than not they were out of the Fund's scope, inconsequential, or the author lacked stature. Since each grant proposal was discussed before the board, summaries of the proposal and the reasons for rejection are contained within the board minutes and working papers. Therefore, only a few rejected files, where the Fund's staff questioned the policy of the applying organization or its tactics, were retained.

Series 4, Fellowships and Grants-in-Aid Program, 1953-1962, contains proposals, copies of the Fund's approval letter, and almost always a copy of the final report. What falls in between are progress reports, correspondences, and more often than not requests for more money.

The Fund distributed several fellowships to scholars studying various problems in the field of civil liberties. The majority of these fellowships dealt with either race or law-related issues, although there was a great deal of variety within each subsection. The fellowship and grants-in- aid program was established in November 1954 by the Board of Directors as a means of exploring areas the Fund was not prepared to undertake on a large scale. It was agreed that the Fund should not seek publicity for this program, but the officers should "find and assist people of mature judgement, who were doing or who are qualified to do constructive work in areas of the Fund's interest." Professor Robert E. Cushman of Cornell University was hired as the consultant for the program, and screened all applications before forwarding them to the Fund's officers.

Arrangement

No arrangement action taken or arrangement information not recorded at the time of processing.

Scope and Contents

Series 5, Public Relations, 1952-1961, has been arranged into four subseries: Correspondence, Press Releases, Radio Reports, and Clippings. This series chronicles the Fund's public relations difficulties and the steps it took to procure a better public image. The Fund was put on the defensive from the outset. Hutchins and Ferry, who were responsible for the Fund's early public relations program, lacked finesse in explaining the Fund's purpose. Their brusque manner alienated critics, further widening the chasm of misunderstanding.

Scope and Contents

Series 5, Subseries 1, Correspondence, 1953-1959, contains correspondence, memoranda, reports, telegrams, clippings and articles. A formal public relations program did not exist until Frank Kelly was hired by the Fund in 1956. The Fund had been the target of critics since its inception but the negative publicity began to escalate in 1955, after Hutchins publicly declared his willingness to hire a Communist. Faced with the possibility of losing his position, Hutchins was forced to concede that he needed help.

Of particular interest within this subseries are letters of criticism and support received from the public. The letters of criticism are indicative of the public's mind-set as the red scare permeated the country. Letters were received in a variety of forms including postcards, clippings, and magazine articles. They were addressed to: Puzzling Hutchins, Red Scare Freeman, Fiend of the Republic, and Comrade Hoffman, and accused the Fund of advancing the principles of Communism. Many of the writers admit to knowing little about the Fund, but attribute what knowledge they did have to Fulton Lewis, Jr., a popular radio personality, or other conservative media outlets. These letters often took malicious personal swipes at board members and officers of the Fund. Hutchins received the most criticism, including death threats.

Scope and Contents

Series 5, Subseries 3, Radio Reports, 1953-1960, is textual summaries of radio broadcasts in which the Fund was mentioned, and is arranged chronologically. Included are excerpts from the broadcasts of newscasters such as Eric Sevareid, Paul Harvey, Tex and Jinx McCrary, Walter Winchell, Cecil Brown, and Fulton Lewis, Jr. A majority of the radio reports feature excerpts from Lewis and his nightly news commentary on national affairs for the Mutual Broadcasting System. Lewis maligned the Fund, its officers, its board members, and its beneficiaries almost nightly. Lewis stated the Fund was "...nothing more than an ill disguised tax-free slush fund of fifteen million dollars, of money that really belonged to the public." Basing his information on the Fund's annual reports, he contended that the Fund was using its entire endowment to spread left-wing propaganda through its various projects and grants. He called for the revocation of its tax exempt status on numerous occasions. The Fund often bought advertising spots immediately following Lewis's program as an act of damage control.

Series 5, Subseries 4, Clippings, 1952-1961, contains articles about the Fund from various newspapers across the United States. The tone in which the Fund is portrayed in the articles is indicative of the newspapers' politics. The more liberal the paper, the more empathy for the Fund and its programs and policies. The articles also provide context for the general feeling of distrust many felt toward the Fund, its officers and its board members. This series overlaps with the clippings distributed to board members but lacks breadth for the years 1955-1959.

Scope and Contents

Series 6, Projects, 1939-1964 [bulk 1953-1959], is arranged by topic and alphabetically thereunder. The topics were devised by the Fund's officers and include: Academic Freedom, American Traditions, Blacklisting, Censorship, Civil Liberties, Distribution Project, Due Process, Educational Activities, Extremist Groups, Immigration, Inter-Group Relations, Internal Communist Menace, Loyalty-Security, Mass Media, and Trade Unions. The results of each project were produced in various forms including reports, handbooks, articles, print and television media, and books. The end product is usually included within the folders, as well as correspondence, memoranda, articles, clippings, proposals, project outlines, progress reports, scripts, press releases, invitations, and statistics.

In an effort to maximize the public's attention to civil rights and civil liberties, several of the Fund's projects relied on television and film. The Fund organized television script contests, the Robert E. Sherwood Awards, and produced several documentaries. The Sherwood Awards, organized by the Fund in memory of a former board member and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Robert E. Sherwood, honored outstanding commercial television programs dealing with issues of freedom, justice, and civil liberties. The Fund awarded three major prizes in each year: Best Network Drama, Best Network Documentary, and Best Drama or Documentary by an Independent Station. The Fund also produced numerous films. A Fund film entitled A City Decides received an Academy Award nomination in the short subject documentary category in 1956. The film chronicled the desegregation of public schools in the city of St. Louis.

Another long-term project developed to foster public discussion was the distribution project. The purpose of the project was to make available to the interested public, books, pamphlets, periodicals, and articles already published elsewhere, which dealt with issues of civil rights and civil liberties. The Fund received materials for possible distribution from authors, editors and publishers, which were then evaluated by Edward Reed and W. H. Ferry. The Board of Directors then gave final approval to distribute the selected materials, which usually had not received wide circulation. The popularity of this project was tremendous as schools, universities, religious and ethnic organizations, politicians, and ordinary citizens sent letter after letter requesting publications.

Inter-Group relations education was another area in which the Fund excelled and financed numerous projects. It established two major commissions, one to study the housing of minority groups within the United States, and the other the plight of Native Americans. The Commission on Race and Housing studied the difficulties of all minority groups in obtaining adequate public or private housing. The Commission gave special attention to the problems of African Americans in large metropolitan areas. A final report issued in 1958 called upon President Eisenhower to establish a committee to eliminate discrimination in Federal housing and urban renewal programs. The report contended that the national housing policy adopted by Congress was "seriously hampered by racial segregation and discrimination in the distribution of housing facilities and benefits provided under federal laws."

In establishing the Commission on the Rights, Liberties, and Responsibilities of the American Indian, the Fund hoped the Commission would promote a better understanding of the special status of Native Americans as United States citizens, and what should be done by and for them to facilitate their entry into the mainstream of American life. The final report, issued in 1961, recommended fundamental revisions in U.S. policy towards the American Indian. Specifically, it examined and made recommendations on termination, Indian values and attitudes, economic development, tribal governments and law and order, education, health, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Scope and Contents

Series 8, Subseries 1, Administration, 1950-1961, houses such items as correspondence, memoranda, clippings, notes, position papers, reports, program statements, and articles. The Basic Issues program was the result of Hutchins's desire to establish a Platonic academy. This subseries details the formulation of the program, from Hutchins's early ideas through his struggle to have the Board validate his plan. Initially, the Fund enlisted ten men to conduct an extensive inquiry into the effect institutions had on individual freedom and civil liberties within the United States. They chose six institutions for initial study which follow in the subsequent subseries. The Consultants included: Adolph A. Berle, Jr., Scott Buchanan, Eugene Burdick, Eric F. Goldman, Clark Kerr, Henry R. Luce, John Courtney Murray, Reinhold Niebuhr, I.I. Rabi, and Robert Redfield. As the program grew, more scholars were invited to attend the sessions, present papers, and conduct studies on topics the Consultants hoped would aid them in their task of clarification.

The Basic Issues program produced, in conjunction with the American Broadcasting Company, a series of thirteen Mike Wallace interviews to stimulate public discussion on the basic issues of survival and freedom in America. Entitled Survival and Freedom, Wallace interviewed such personalities as Mortimer Adler, Harry Ashmore, James McBride Dabbs, William O. Douglas, Cyrus Eaton, Erich Fromm, Robert M. Hutchins, Aldous Huxley, Henry Kissinger, Francis J. Lally, Arthur Larson, Henry Cabot Lodge, Reinhold Niebuhr, Charles Percy, Adlai E. Stevenson, Sylvester Weaver, Jr., and Henry Wriston. Each interview, except for the Lodge interview, was printed in pamphlet form and distributed free of charge to all those expressing interest. ABC canceled the Lodge interview after Lodge insisted on deletions in the program. ABC declared editing public information programs after they had been completed was against company policy, and it constituted editorial censorship. Although it is not clear which statements Lodge sought to delete, a transcript of his interview is included in the file.
