Guide to the David Newton Henderson Papers, 1930-1976

Collection Overview

The David Newton Henderson Papers contain the office files of Congressman Henderson when he was the U.S. Representative for the Third District of North Carolina. The papers span from 1930 to 1976, but the bulk of the papers covers Henderson's years in office, 1961-1976. Henderson's predecessor, Congressman Graham A. Barden, left Henderson many papers on ongoing business, especially local projects.

The Henderson Papers contain correspondence, printed material, speeches, invitations, newspaper clippings, photographs, newsletters, financial statements, legislative reports and notes, and drafts of bills. The great majority of this collection is correspondence which Henderson's office exchanged with constituents, legislative officials, and officials of federal and state agencies.

The papers are divided into the following fifteen series:

Campaign Files

Case Files

Committee Files

Correspondence: Answer Copies

County Project Files

Engagements

Federal and State Agencies

Legislation

Military Academy Files

Newsletters and News Releases

Newspaper Clippings

Post Office Files

Speeches

Subject Files

Oversize Box

The largest series are Committee Files, County Project Files, Federal and State Agencies, Legislation, and Subject Files. The Committee Files contain material relating to Henderson's various committee and subcommittee memberships and reflect the actual creation of legislation. The Legislation Series contains drafts of specific bills and legislative reports and notes. Subject Files contain mostly constituent mail on legislation, current issues, and various subjects. County Project Files concern projects and local affairs in the Third District. The Federal and State Agencies Series reflects Henderson's role as an intermediary between constituents' problems and requests and the appropriate governmental agency which could deal with their problems.

There is some overlap among series. For example, using the broad subject Agriculture, a constituent's letter supporting an agricultural price-support bill would appear under Subject Files. Agriculture. Drafts of that specific bill might be under Legislation. Material on an agricultural cooperative project in the Third District would be in the County Project Files. A constituent's request for exemption from certain federal regulations regarding crop measurement would be under Federal and State Agencies. Agriculture, Department of. For more information summarizing the contents of each category see the introductions at the beginning of each section in the inventory.

The papers reflect many types of public opinion: organized and repetitive pressure mail, professional lobbying activities of national interest groups, letters ranging from semi-literate constituents to well-known local and national leaders. The papers show a definite paper spiral during the 1960s and 1970s with the volume of Henderson's files increasing yearly.

The Henderson Papers illustrate many national trends of the 1960s and 1970s. Henderson's work on the Post Office and Civil Service and the Public Works committees made him instrumental in matters of national importance and brought him correspondence from around the nation. These papers particularly reveal trends in federal employment practices in the 1960s and 1970s. The papers contain much material about the reorganization of the Post Office Department into the Postal Service in 1969-1970. The papers reveal public opinion and legislative trends on such issues as civil rights, the Vietnamese War, the energy crisis of the early 1970s, and the Watergate affair. Henderson illustrates well the position of a conservative southern Democratic congressman voting against all civil rights legislation, opposing extension and raising of the minimum wage, federal aid to education, the War Against Poverty, and foreign aid. He consistently supported the presidents' positions on Vietnam, "right-to-Work" laws, and agricultural price supports.

The Henderson Papers contain rich information on local interests, affairs, and personalities in the Third District of North Carolina. Henderson vigorously supported local interests in Congress. He vehemently opposed restrictions on tobacco advertising and other "anti-tobacco" legislation. Henderson's correspondence and campaign material reveal the network of the Democratic political machinery in eastern North Carolina and his relationship with the local power structure.

Specific subjects are discussed in more detail in the inventory.

The Case Files formed a massive part of Henderson's office files. They consist of correspondence from constituents and Henderson's responses concerning problems and requests of all sorts such as pensions, military transfers, job requests, etc. Since these papers are very routine and not topical in nature, a representative sample has been retained only for the letter "C", a large letter which includes a wide range of ethnic groups.

In 1969 through 1970 the Post Office Department experienced a major reorganization. First introduced in 1969 as H.R. 4, this reform was finally implemented in 1970 as H.R. 17070. This legislation converted the Post Office Department from a Cabinet-level department to an independent establishment in the executive branch of government. This independence necessitated reorganizing rates so that revenues of the Postal Service as a whole met expenses. The bills provided the framework for collective bargaining by postal employees, and enhanced the pay scale and advancement opportunities. One oversized item is located in oversized box at end of collection.

Includes invitations received by Henderson's office and correspondence and printed material relating to accepted engagements. This material illustrates lobbying efforts of both local and national interest groups, businesses and organizations. These papers also reveal something of Henderson's daily schedule. Materials were left in the arrangement as they were filed by Henderson's office. Accepted invitations were filed by following the date of the engagements. Declined invitations were filed as they crossed Henderson's desk, i.e. at the time when Henderson's staff responded to the invitation.

Contains mainly correspondence reflecting Henderson's role as an intermediary between constituents' problems and appropriate federal and state agencies which could resolve those problems. There is some expression of opinion by constituents over the activities, regulations, and administration of such agencies. These papers are similar to the Case Files in nature. Folder headings for North Carolina departments and agencies are preceded by "N.C." Those without this indication are federal agencies. Each agency is listed alphabetically even if it is part of a larger department or agency. State and federal agencies are filed separately.

The largest and most diverse category in the Henderson Papers, the Subject Files contain correspondence and printed material concerning a wide range of subjects and legislative items. They include much public opinion on current legislation arranged both under the name of the issue itself (e.g. Gun Control) and under the name of the standing committee through which the legislation passed (e.g. Judiciary). There is similar material under Gun Control and Judiciary so both subject and committee listing should be checked. There is also much material on general subjects and administrative matters.

Notations have been made about the contents of some files. These notations are designed as an aid, not as a complete list of contents.

Yarmolinski Affair, 1964-1965(cont.)

In 1964 journalists charged that several Southern congressmen--particularly the North Carolina delegation--made the votes for the president's economic opportunity program contingent on the expulsion of Adam Yarmolinski from the administration of the program. These congressmen reportedly suspected Yarmolinski, a Jewish liberal of Russian descent, of subversion.
