Robert R. Bowie

Robert R. Bowie was a foreign policy expert and legal scholar who served four U.S. administrations as policy planner, counselor, and deputy CIA director, while teaching at Harvard Law School and founding Harvard's Center for International Affairs. Throughout Bowie's wide-ranging career, he sustained interests in antitrust issues, European unity, and global arms control.

Robert Richardson Bowie was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1909. He attended Princeton University, graduating in 1931, and was graduated from Harvard Law School in 1934. He practiced law in Baltimore, Maryland between 1934 and 1942 with the firm Bowie and Burke (together with his father Clarence K. Bowie), and was Maryland's Assistant Attorney General from 1941 to 1942. He entered the U.S. Army in 1942.

Bowie's wartime work centered on the renegotiation and termination of war contracts. His Legion of Merit award cites Bowie's contribution to "an agreement under which the War Department was allowed great flexibility in procedure while retaining the benefits of price control."

As World War II ended, Bowie was relocated to occupied Berlin as Special Assistant to General Lucius Clay, the Deputy Military Governor of Germany. Bowie formulated policy for the military government in Germany, serving as executive secretary of the Denazification Policy Board. The Oak Leaf Cluster was added to his Legion of Merit award for services in Germany between 1945 and 1946.

Bowie joined the faculty of the Harvard Law School upon his return to the United States, and taught courses in corporate and antitrust law between 1946 and 1955. In 1949, Bowie served on the Hoover Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government, studying federal regulatory agencies including the Federal Reserve Board, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Federal Trade Commission.

Bowie went on leave from Harvard 1950-1951, returning to Germany to act as General Counsel and Special Adviser to John J. McCloy, then the U.S. High Commissioner of Germany. Bowie helped to draft McCloy's speeches, and himself gave a talk in Hamburg entitled "Economic Bases of a Democratic State." With McCloy, Bowie worked on crafting the agreement between the Allies and West Germany and making the transition from military to civilian government.

During this period, Bowie met Jean Monnet, who was to remain a friend and associate. McCloy and Bowie were among the advocates for the 1950 Schuman Plan (a focal effort of Monnet's), through which West Germany was integrated into the common market of the European Coal and Steel Community along with France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg in 1952—a precursor to the European Union.

European unity, and Germany's position in Europe, remained a concern of Bowie's as the Cold War developed. In 1953, Bowie left Harvard once more to become the State Department's third Director of Policy Planning. In 1955 he was also named Assistant Secretary of State. During this time, Bowie worked with Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and sat on the National Security Council's planning board, a new body appointed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Bowie's experience working with Dulles and Eisenhower led to his later participation in recording oral histories about the period, and provided a basis for his authorship with Richard Immerman of Waging Peace: Eisenhower Shaped an Enduring Cold War Strategy. In his reflections and in his writing, he made a case for Eisenhower as a policymaker in his own right.

Returning to Harvard in 1957, Bowie founded the Center for International Affairs (CFIA; now the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs), and was named Clarence Dillon Professor of International Affairs. With Henry Kissinger, Bowie wrote in 1958 in The Program of the Center for International Affairs: "Foreign affairs in our era pose unprecedented tasks.…Today no region is isolated; none can be ignored; actions and events even in remote places may have immediate worldwide impact…the old order has been shattered." Bowie served as the center's director from its founding until 1972.

In 1966, Bowie served again in Washington as Counselor to Secretary of State Dean Rusk. He returned to Harvard in 1968. He stepped down as director of the CFIA in 1972. During the mid-1970s he was a member of the Trilateral Commission (formed to create ties between industrialized Japan, Europe and North America) and the Overseas Development Council, among other activities.

In 1977, Bowie was appointed Deputy for National Intelligence under Director of the CIA, Admiral Stansfield Turner, and was responsible for regular briefings to President Carter. He left the CIA in 1979, and retired from Harvard in 1980.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Bowie remained active and engaged in the field of foreign policy. He published a monthly column in the Christian Science Monitor in the early 1980s, and chaired a task force of the Committee for Economic Development in 1982. Bowie was a member of the European Security Study (ESECS), a group of independent defense analysts who advocated bolstering NATO's conventional weaponry as an alternative to nuclear stockpiling. He was involved with the Council on Foreign Relations, the American Academy of Diplomacy, the Nuclear History Program (a collaboration between France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States), the Woodrow Wilson Center, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and the Brookings Institution, among other organizations.

Bowie was the author of Studies in Federalism with Carl J. Friedrich in 1954; Shaping the Future: Foreign Policy in an Age of Transition in 1963 [Radner Lectures at Columbia University]; Suez 1956 in 1974; Waging Peace: How Eisenhower Shaped an Enduring Cold War Strategy with Richard Immerman in 1998.

Bowie and the former Mary Theodosia Chapman, known as Teddy, married in 1944 and had two children, Robert R. Bowie, Jr. and William C. Bowie.

Robert Bowie died at age 104 in Maryland in November, 2013.

The Robert R. Bowie Papers reflect Bowie's government service under four administrations, as well as his position at Harvard University, his Army service and work in the postwar military government of Germany, research for books he wrote, and his later activities as a member of national and international policy and strategy organizations.

The papers contain four series. The first represents Bowie's wartime service, when he worked on war contracts, as well as his work towards the reconstruction of Germany—first as Special Assistant to the Deputy Military Governor for Germany, General Lucius Clay (1945-1946), and second as General Counsel to John J. McCloy, U.S. High Commissioner for Germany (1950-1951). The papers include correspondence from these periods, as well as memoranda, drafts of talks, papers, and legal material, and government publications.

The papers in the second series include material originated from both of Bowie's positions at the United States State Department—as Director of the Policy Planning Staff and Assistant Secretary of State (1953-1957) and as Counselor to the Secretary of State (1966-1968)—in particular, correspondence and memoranda from these periods.

From the period when Bowie served as Deputy Director for National Intelligence at the CIA (1977-1979), the papers contain talking points for presidential briefings, as well as personal correspondence, though agency memoranda and correspondence are absent. This material appears in Series 3 along with papers that relate to Bowie's activities earlier in the 1970s—as a member of the Trilateral Commission and the Overseas Development Council in particular. Series 3 also includes research files for Bowie's book Suez 1956 (1974).

Material relating to Bowie's long professional association with Harvard University appears throughout the papers. Bowie held a professorship there, with occasional periods of leave for government service, from 1946 to 1980, and correspondence with his Harvard colleagues appears in each series.

The final series contains papers derived primarily from the 1980s and 1990s, after Bowie's retirement from Harvard. Correspondence, notes, drafts, and printed material document his involvement with many national and international policy and strategy organizations. Series 4 also contains research and correspondence files for Bowie's work on Waging Peace: How Eisenhower Shaped an Enduring Cold War Strategy, co-authored with Richard Immerman.

Individual series descriptions include more detail.

Scope and Contents

Series 1 contains material reflecting Robert R. Bowie's wartime duty (1942-1945), his postwar assistantship to the Deputy Military Governor for Germany, General Lucius Clay (1945-1946), and his position as Special Adviser to High Commissioner for Germany John J. McCloy (1950-1951).

Series 1 also includes one folder of earlier correspondence by Robert Bowie's father Clarence K. Bowie, from 1927 to 1942.

Material from Bowie's wartime service in the Army and with the Deputy Military Governor, as well as additional material through 1949, appears in Series 1, Subseries 1. The series includes material from each of Bowie's Army assignments in Washington—the legal branch of the Purchases Division, the Office of the Director of Materiel, and the Office of War Mobilization and Reconversion. Wartime papers include correspondence and memoranda, pamphlets from the government printing office, meeting minutes, and drafts of legal material such as the War Department Technical Manual on fixed-price supply contracts, as well as amendments to a law on appropriations for national defense. Bowie also drafted speeches for Colonel Albert Browning, Director of the Purchases Division, and reported on contract termination in Canada. Bowie's work centered on wartime contracts with military suppliers—especially the renegotiation and termination of war contracts.

At the war's end, Bowie was appointed Special Assistant to General Lucius Clay, who was then the Deputy Military Governor for Germany. Material from this period includes monthly reports of the Military Governor for the U.S. Zone, memoranda from Bowie to General Clay, reports of the Denazification Policy Board, material from the Allied Control Authority and the Office of the Military Government of the United States on the issues of reparations and rebuilding industry in Germany.

Bowie's correspondence from Frankfurt and Berlin, in Box 4, characterizes some of his work under Clay; in 1945, he worked on revision of military government directives, drafted papers for setting up the Allied Control Council, and helped to draft a proclamation for General Eisenhower to the German people. In 1945 and 1946, Bowie turned to the process of denazification, as well as addressing the problem of food shortages.

Series 1, Subseries 2 includes some material from the period between Bowie's two positions in Germany—in particular, papers that relate to his service on the Hoover Commission in 1949 (including correspondence with Hoover), as well as the drafts and texts of talks Bowie gave on the occupation of Germany once he had returned to the United States. Material in Box 4 reflects his participation in the Rules Committee for the Maryland Court of Appeals.

From 1950-1951, Bowie served in Frankfurt as General Counsel to John J. McCloy, U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. Material from the Office of Military Government period appears in Series 1, Subseries 2. The papers reflect that Bowie drafted speeches for McCloy, as well as giving a speech of his own, "Economic Bases of a Democratic State," in Hamburg. Material in Box 5 includes issues of Information Bulletin, the monthly magazine of the U.S. High Commission for Germany, as well as the office's press releases.

The "decartelization" of industry was one of Bowie's areas of focus, as well as creating a working and secure civilian government in the new Federal Republic. In particular, papers from this period focus on the Schuman Plan for creating a European Coal and Steel Community. Much of the Schuman Plan material in Box 5 is printed material, published in France and elsewhere—reports and bulletins of the French Assemblée Nationale; clippings in favor and in opposition; and German pamphlets introducing the Schuman Plan to the public.

Scope and Contents

Series 3 contains copies of Bowie's briefings to the President from February 1978 to August 1979, when he was Deputy for National Intelligence at the CIA, as well as his daybooks from this period. The series includes personal correspondence from the CIA period, but does not contain agency correspondence. Most material from the CIA period appears in Box 10.

Bowie was appointed to serve as Deputy in March, 1977. A list of Bowie's presidential briefings appears in the folder for January 16, 1979. Presidential briefings cover the following: China and its economic prospects (Feb. 1978); the Soviet economy (June 1978; this folder also contains an August 1979 memo titled "Status of Interagency Work in Progress"); Iran (Oct. 1978); "African Trends" (Nov. 1978); China (January 1979); the PLO (Apr. 1979); and Turkey and Yugoslavia (August 1979). As well as copies of the briefing points, these folders contain some of Bowie's handwritten notes. Box 10 also contains memoranda (1976 and 1977) on the structure of the U.S. intelligence community. Bowie left the Agency in August, 1979.

The series also includes records of Bowie's official travel to London in 1978 and to Hilton Head, South Carolina in 1979 (for a seminar with Harry Boardman), as well as some of Bowie's other activities.

Series 3 also includes material from earlier in the 1970s, reflecting Bowie's participation in the Trilateral Commission and the Overseas Development Council, and his membership in the Academy of Arts and Sciences. The series includes Bowie's subject files on arms control and a new world economic order. The series contains correspondence with Kurt Birrenbach and Jean Monnet as well as documentation of Bowie's interviews for several oral histories (at Columbia University, at the Eisenhower Library). To some extent the series documents Bowie's teaching at Harvard University, as well as his research for and publication of the book Suez 1956.

Scope and Contents

Series 4 documents Bowie's activities after his government service and after his retirement from Harvard University in 1980. The series reflects Bowie's abiding interests in arms control, NATO and the Atlantic alliance.

Bowie's subject files date from the early 1980s, including correspondence and printed material. These subject files overlap with other material in the series, since they document Bowie's membership in organizations, his writing, and his participation in conferences. They are grouped together here because they reflect the organizational system that Bowie maintained during the period.

Material under Conferences and Organizations documents Bowie's work with a task force of the Committee for Economic Development, and his involvement with organizations such as the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Atlantic Council, the Overseas Development Council, the Trilateral Commission, the Brookings Institution, the Woodrow Wilson Center, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Nuclear History Program, the American Academy of Diplomacy, the Brookings Institution, and the Rules Committee of the Appeals Court of Maryland, among others. The series documents Bowie's role in the European Security Study (ESECS), a group of independent defense analysts who advocated bolstering NATO's conventional weaponry as an alternative to nuclear stockpiling. Bowie's involvement with many of these organizations extended through the 1980s and 1990s. Files relating to Harvard and the Center for International Affairs are also included in this category. One course file demonstrates that Bowie returned to teaching a course at Harvard in 1989-1990.

The series also documents Bowie's participation in conferences and seminars, such as annual Salzburg Seminars, conferences at the Woodrow Wilson Center, and conferences in honor of John Foster Dulles and Jean Monnet, among others. Files on conferences, as well as containing official schedules, often contain Bowie's notes and/or talking points.

Series 4 also contains the transcripts for several oral histories Bowie recorded during this period, as well as correspondence documenting Bowie's participation in radio interviews and television documentaries. The series contains notes for and typescripts of talks Bowie gave in the early 1980s and afterwards. One file contains correspondence and information compiled for a biography of Bowie by Australian doctoral student Andrew McFadzean.

Research and writing files contain contracts, research, and correspondence for Bowie's and Richard Immerman's book on Eisenhower's strategy, Waging Peace. Much of the Eisenhower research material appears in Box 18. Other writing includes Bowie's monthly column during the early 1980s for the Christian Science Monitor, as well as other articles, chapters and forewords.

Series 4 also contains several books that were included with Bowie's files. A copy of Lenin's Imperialism contains undated notes inserted by Bowie, and a copy of America's Germany: John J. McCloy and the Federal Republic of Germany (Thomas Alan Schwartz) includes Bowie's sticky notes. Other bound books in this series are authored by Bowie.
