Overview and metadata sections

Freedom House U.S.

Freedom House was conceived in 1941 during a discussion between Herbert and Eleanor Agar, Dorothy Thompson, George Field and Ulric Bell, on how to merge several local organizations that were advocating an end to United States isolationism. Field offered a simple solution: house all the organizations in one building. A physical merger would take place, but administratively the organizations would remain separate. Hence on October 31, 1941 Freedom House was officially incorporated in the state of New York as a non-partisan democratic challenge to the Braunhaus in Munich, a center for Nazi propaganda. As stated in its bylaws Freedom House would:

...stand as a symbol and center for the two-fold fight for freedom; to define this two-fold fight both in terms of resisting the totalitarian movement now threatening civilization and in terms of aspirations of all peoples for a world of freedom, peace and security; to promote the concrete application of the principles of freedom and democracy in the everyday affairs of the U.S.A., governmental and otherwise, so that by sacrifice, intelligence and justice this country can be an example in both the present and post-war world of democracy at its best; to encourage all democracies, including captive countries, to look to Freedom House in the U.S.A. as a beacon lighting the struggle for a free world; to act as a headquarters and clearing house for organizations enlisted in the fight for freedom, whether at home or abroad; to disseminate literature bearing on the above aims; and to serve as a coordinating center for such subordinate centers as may be established anywhere, to make the symbolism of Freedom House plain to the world...

From the outset, Freedom House drew upon the resources of its founders. George Field headed the New York chapter of the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies, Herbert Agar was active in Fight for Freedom, Inc., while Dorothy Thompson was the founder of Ring of Freedom, all of whom served on the original Freedom House Board of Directors. Freedom House acquired a significant number of members when these organizations merged with it administratively in 1942.

The organization maintained an active pace throughout World War II. In its first year alone, it had arranged for more than 200 broadcasts over local radio stations and nation-wide networks; commemorated important anniversaries with various national groups; established a Labor-Industry Relations Bureau; coordinated meetings, exhibits and programs; provided a forum for exiled nationalists; and printed and distributed speeches and pamphlets. It served as a vocal proponent for racial integration of the U.S. armed forces, formal recognition of the Free French, an international commission on human rights, and the formation of the United Nations.

While Freedom House advocated collective social and political activism, it also sought to acknowledge individual contributions to the cause of freedom. The organization chose to honor those who acted on their wisdom and foresight. It bestowed the first Freedom Award in 1943 on journalist Walter Lippmann "for his outstanding clarity and vision in analyzing America's responsibilities toward the world of the future." It became an annual award whose later recipients included men who jeopardized their lives and careers in the name of freedom. The Freedom Award was discontinued in 1977 only to be revived in 1991.

The organization's activities during World War II would establish its place in the American consciousness, attracting a wide variety of prominent Americans to its causes. Wendell Willkie and Eleanor Roosevelt were members of its board; screen and radio stars, such as Helen Hayes, Burgess Meredith and Tallulah Bankhead participated in its many programs; noted authors penned booklets, pamphlets, speeches and manifestos; and activists and politicians used its members to promote their platforms. Their celebrity provided Freedom House with national and international exposure.

Wendell Willkie's legacy had an enormous impact on the organization. Although he only attended one board meeting before his death in 1944, the board of Freedom House chose to honor him with a memorial. However, the memorial was not without controversy. Executive Secretary George Field suggested the creation of a Willkie Memorial Building, while President Dorothy Thompson was committed to the idea of an international library dedicated to Willkie's memory. The board supported Field's idea, and Thompson resigned as president in protest. The building would embody Willkie's "one world" concept by housing major non-profit organizations concerned with freedom, especially those whose goals were to advance the following objectives:

The Willkie Memorial Building of Freedom House, Inc. located at 20 West 40th Street was formally dedicated in October 1945. Its first occupants included the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Anti-Defamation League and Metropolitan Council of B'nai B'rith, Common Council For American Unity, Public Education Association, Citizens' Housing Council of New York, World Student Service Fund, and of course Freedom House. With the establishment and administration of the Willkie Memorial Building, Freedom House was able to fulfill its function as a coordinator, clearing house, and meeting place.

After the defeat of Nazism and Fascism, Freedom House focused its attention on new foreign and domestic threats from the Left and the Right. Specific post-war issues included the reconstruction of Europe, the Marshall plan, control of nuclear arms, withdrawal of colonial powers, U.S. participation in the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, civil rights, and the spread of communism. Through its policy statements, forums, conferences, and publications, the organization helped to frame the national debate on these vital issues. It continued to voice its support and concerns throughout the years on a variety of issues that affected democratic principles and human rights at home and abroad.

The latter half of the 1960s had a pronounced effect on Freedom House, as the board was not immune to the differences dividing the country. Although it released statements supporting U.S. involvement in Vietnam, its board was deeply divided. Internally, an administrative change also altered the dynamics of the organization. George Field, a founding member, retired as its executive director and was replaced by Leonard Sussman. Although Field had selected Sussman as his successor, the two had different approaches to managing the organization. Field continued to serve on the board after his retirement but completely removed himself from the organization in 1970 after numerous disagreements with Sussman. Successive changes in the executive directorship occurred without animosity. Sussman retired in 1988 and was succeeded by R. Bruce McColm, who left in 1993. Replacing him was Adrian Karatnycky, who continues to serve as the organization's president, with Jim Denton becoming the executive director in 1997 when Freedom House merged with the National Forum Foundation.

Throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, the organization continued to provide platforms for the oppressed people of the world and to call attention to decisions that affected U.S. foreign policy and human freedom. During this time, Freedom House also expanded its agenda to include election monitoring, an annual assessment of political rights and civil liberties throughout the world, participation in international controversies regarding the news media, assistance to democratic revolutions in former Communist countries in Eastern Europe, and international democratization training programs.

The Freedom House Records contain the administrative records of this organization. The collection consists of various forms of textual, graphic and audiovisual materials. The collection provides an overview of the organization and its activities, primarily through 1993. Many of the more recent records remain in the hands of the organization. It should also be noted that the records arrived in utter disarray with large portions of records missing.

Researchers interested in the first 29 years of Freedom House are strongly encouraged to examine the Freedom House Records, George Field Files (MC#48) housed at the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. Field took organizational as well as personal files with him when he left Freedom House in 1970. While these files do duplicate some of the material within this collection, they also contain original material.

Accruals are expected from Freedom House on a periodic basis.

These records were donated to the Princeton University Library in 1994 by Freedom House, Inc. (ML1994-8) with additional material received periodically from 1998 through 2007.

Leonard Sussman gave the library bound collections of his essays in 2013 and 2014. The accession numbers associated with these gifts are ML.2013.017, ML.2013.027, and ML.2014.026.

The materials from the 2016 accession were donated by Freedom House in June 2016 [ML.2016.016] and the materials from the 2017 accession were donated by Freedom House in August 2017 [ML.2017.026]. Digital materials in Series 18 were donated by Freedom House in June 2017 [ML.2017.019].

Collection Inventory

Arrangement

Series 1: Board of Trustees, 1941-1994, is arranged into four subseries: Bylaws and Minutes, Meeting Materials, Correspondence, and Policy Statements.

Scope and Contents

Each subseries reveals an aspect of Freedom House's operation ranging from minutes describing administrative activities of the organization to lengthy discussions regarding current events of interest to the Freedom House Board.

Physical Description

26 boxes

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 1: Bylaws and Minutes, 1941-1994, contains two distinct sets of minutes: the Board of Trustees meetings and the Executive Committee meetings. In accordance with the bylaws, the board was to meet at least once every three months exclusive of July and August. From 1970 on, this requirement was met or exceeded. However, prior to1970 meetings seem to have occurred once in the winter, usually in February, and once in the fall, usually in October. Where extant, notices and agendas are included with the minutes. The content of the minutes can be broken down into two parts. One part concerns the everyday administrative operations of Freedom House such as nominating new board members, discussing fund raising, reviewing committee work, deciding who would receive the Freedom Award, as well as the mundane tasks of managing the upkeep of the Willkie Memorial Building. The other material in the minutes concerns policy matters. Recorded here are board member discussions related to current events, such as the nuclear test ban treaty, the war in Vietnam, and, in general, dialogue regarding American foreign policy.

The Executive Committee records include the minutes for the year 1945 and 1960-1988. This committee consists of the officers of Freedom House and four members of the board. The Executive Committee acts as the governing body between meetings of the Board of Trustees. Hence many of the same issues and topics are discussed at both meetings.

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 2: Meeting Materials, 1941-1992 supplements the minutes of the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee by providing detailed information on matters discussed at these meetings. Meeting Materials for the early years focus on establishing the organization with an emphasis on enlisting the proper individuals for the Board of Trustees, finding financial support, and establishing operations in the Willkie Memorial Building. Information was sent to each board member prior to meetings and could include clippings, memoranda, committee reports, open letters to government agencies, policy statements, notification of conferences, and activity reports. Researchers should note that the folders for 1979-1981 contain comprehensive descriptions of Freedom House projects called Activities Reports that list all the activities of Freedom House in those years and describe in detail the wide variety of interests of the organization.

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 3: Correspondence, 1941-1993, contains the correspondence of individual board members followed by the various committees of the board. It includes correspondence, speeches, articles, memoranda, reports and biographical information on each board member. The board member correspondence highlights the relationship between the individual members and the administration of the organization. The board consisted of such notables as William Agar, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Clifford Case, Leo Cherne, Paul Douglas, Roscoe Drummond, Harry Gideonse, Sidney Hook, Jacob Javits, Max Kampelman, Jeane Kirkpatrick, Bette Bao Lord, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, John Richardson, Bayard Rustin, Margaret Chase Smith, Rex Stout, Herbert Bayard Swope, Dorothy Thompson, Walter White, Roy Wilkins, and Wendell Willkie.

The committees were established by the Executive Committee in the 1970s to streamline the operation of the organization and allow board members to participate actively in some aspect of Freedom House operations. Committees included the Comparative Survey Audit, Nominating, Planning, Program Audit, Public Affairs, and Publications. The most interesting committee material resides in the Program Audit Committee folders. This group examined the current programs of Freedom House and recommended a future course for these programs. Also included within this subseries is the Public Affairs Institute (PAI), which was governed by the Public Affairs Committee. The Institute was created in 1967 to counteract the influence of the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, which "tended to veer considerably left of center." The PAI sought to examine the most critical problems affecting free societies and to produce and publicize recommended correctives.

Arrangement

The correspondence in this subseries is arranged alphabetically by correspondent, then by committee.

Scope and Contents

Series 1, Subseries 4: Policy Statements, 1942-1993, includes some statements that were sporadically released to major newspapers, while others were made available only through sale by Freedom House. Policy statements can also be found among the various board minutes, meeting materials, pamphlets and in the Freedom House Newsletter. The files consist of correspondence, drafts, and memoranda on a wide variety of issues including Vietnam, Nixon and his Presidency, affirmative action, and South Africa, as well as other domestic and foreign policy issues. In issuing these statements, Freedom House hoped to provide a broad context for examining important policy issues, thus highlighting the correlation between policy and the United States' domestic, social and political ethos. The policy statements aroused support and opposition from both ends of the political spectrum.

Scope and Contents

Series 2: Administration, 1940-1995, houses the administrative records of the organization.

Arrangement

This series is arranged into three subseries: Executive Directors, Washington Office, and Financial Records.

Physical Description

53 boxes

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Subseries 1: Executive Directors, 1940-1995 files contain correspondence, memoranda, clippings, reports, and articles reflecting each man's interests. George Field served as the first executive director of the organization, from its inception until 1967.

Under Field's directorship, Freedom House established the annual Freedom Award, supported the Marshall Plan and the creation of NATO, published the Balance Sheet of Freedom, held conferences and established the Wendell Willkie Memorial Building.

Leonard Sussman succeeded Field in 1967. Sussman, a journalist, enlarged and diversified the organization's programs. He developed a bi-monthly magazine, Freedom at Issue, the newsletter Freedom Monitor, and the yearly survey of political rights and civil liberties. Sussman was also instrumental in the creation of the International Council on the Future of Universities (ICFU), which for ten years organized scholars and intellectuals in Western Europe and the U.S. to defend higher education in the face of ideological assaults from inside and outside the academy. In 1973, an ICFU conference in Venice attended by 100 scholars from 15 countries concluded that greater pluralism was needed in higher education. Sussman retired as executive director in 1987 but remained associated with the organization as its senior scholar in international communications.

R. Bruce McColm served as the director of the organization's Center for Caribbean and Central American Studies. In 1987, he was named deputy director and then elected executive director by the board in 1988. McColm increased Freedom House's visibility in Washington, D.C. and developed the Freedom Fund, which assisted democratic revolutions and provided civic education materials for the election campaigns in Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary. To further facilitate the growth of civil society in Czechoslovakia and Hungary, the organization sponsored public policy institutes in those countries.

McColm left Freedom House in 1993 and was replaced by Adrian Karatnycky, a trade union and human rights activist. In 1997, Freedom House merged with the National Forum Foundation. Karatnycky became president, and the former president of the NFF, Jim Denton, was named the new executive director. Few records of the Karatnycky and Denton administration are found in the collection.

Arrangement

The materials in this subseries are arranged chronologically by director and alphabetically thereafter.

Scope and Contents

Series 2, Subseries 2: Washington Office, 1987-1994, contains the correspondence, memoranda, clippings and reports the Washington Office forwarded to the central office in New York. Opened in 1987, the office was established to monitor congressional initiatives that would directly affect Freedom House programs and policies. It also distributed Freedom House publications, met with various congressional representatives, provided reference services to media outlets, organized press functions, and created the Cuban Roundtable. The Cuban Roundtable provided a forum where opinion and policy makers could gather to discuss current developments in Cuba as well as the direction of U.S.-Cuban relations.

Arrangement

In this subseries, the general correspondence is arranged chronologically followed by alphabetically arranged subject files.

Scope and Contents

Series 3: Willkie Memorial Building, 1944-1987, houses a variety of correspondence related to the purchase, maintenance and sale of the building. The building was purchased and renovated with funds subscribed by the original supporters of Freedom House. It was dedicated to the memory of Willkie on October 8, 1945. Unable to maintain the building financially, Freedom House was forced to sell it in 1985, setting off a firestorm of protest from the occupants. Lawsuits were filed to block the sale, but to no avail. Located in Meeting Materials of the Board of Trustees is more information regarding the sale of the building. During its 40-year existence, the building housed non-profit organizations that engaged in advancing a free society. Such renowned organizations as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the National Citizens Council on Civil Rights used the Willkie building for their offices.

Within this series are materials related to specific events and ceremonies, which either took place in the building itself or were sponsored by the trustees of the Willkie Memorial Building. Aside from the dedication and rededication of the building, there were receptions for dignitaries, fundraisers for Freedom House, and One World Award dinners. Notable in this series is the correspondence between George Field and the African-American sculptor Richmond Barthe. In 1945, Barthe was commissioned to design the Wendell Willkie Memorial Plaque.

Although the Willkie Memorial Building was a separate entity from Freedom House, governed by its own board, the key players remained the same. A few stray copies of the meeting minutes of the Willkie board can be found in Series 1: Board of Trustees, while a complete run is located in the George Field collection (MC#048).

Arrangement

The materials in this series is arranged into four subseries: Bookshelf/Books USA, Radio and Television Broadcasts, Conferences and In-Service, and Eurasia.

Physical Description

32 boxes

Scope and Contents

Series 4, Subseries 1: Bookshelf/Books USA, 1956-1986, consists of correspondence, reports, financial information, and memoranda, which chronicle the activities of Freedom House's Bookshelf project, which was launched in 1959, and its acquisition of the independent entity, Books USA in 1967. Books USA was officially dissolved by the state of Illinois in 1968. Each sought to distribute important publications, in cooperation with the United States Information Agency and the Peace Corps, to Third World schools, libraries, and organizations. The programs distributed important works such as Common Sense and Other Political Writings by Thomas Paine; Profiles in Courage by John F. Kennedy; Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman; and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The books were viewed as a means to disprove the misconceptions about America abroad, and to meet the massive challenge of books distributed by Communist nations.

Arrangement

The material in this subseries is arranged alphabetically by topic with the Bookshelf material preceding Books USA.

Series 7: Serials and Pamphlets, 1942-1999, contains various newsletters and pamphlets, which contained announcements of the organization's policies and activities, and reprints of important speeches and articles. It also includes issues of the organization's magazine Freedom Review. Freedom House began publishing the periodical under the title Freedom at Issue in 1970. The periodical sought to publish authoritative comment on social and political problems, review notable but little-publicized books, and provide news of constructive programs and statements by Freedom House. The name was changed in 1993, and it focused on important domestic and foreign policy issues. Freedom House ceased publishing Freedom Review in 1997. Also included within this series are reports documenting the activities of the Washington office.
