Abstract: The Richard B. Russell, Jr. Collection, Subgroup C, Series VI. Political not only spans the entire senate career of Russell but also carries over the gubernatorial office with the 1932 senatorial campaign and the early senate office procedures through Russell's office filing reorganization circa 1943. The Political series is a rich source of documentation for studying political campaigns in the mid-twentieth century. The campaign files cover Senator Russell's campaigns of 1932, 1936, 1942, 1948, 1954, 1960, and 1966. In addition to the senatorial campaign files, the series contains files documenting Russell's unsuccessful 1952 race for United States president. Any additional non-textual materials originally filed with papers were removed for preservation purposes and improved access. These materials include photographs, audiovisual items, scrapbooks, vertical files, memorabilia, and books. The Special Name files contain information at a particular point in time on individuals whom Senator Russell considered of enough interest to warrant an individual folder. Such individuals include Lyndon B. Johnson, Eugene Talmadge, Charles Crisp, Herman E. Talmadge, Ralph McGill, Strom Thurmond, Orval Faubus, and Barry Goldwater, among others.

Collection Description

Biographical Note

Richard Brevard Russell, Jr. held public office for fifty years as a state legislator, governor, and U.S. senator. The highlights of his legislative career included support of non-interventionist foreign policy, passage of the National School Lunch Program, securing funding for military installations and research facilities—including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—and his opposition to equal rights for African Americans, most evident in the filibuster of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Russell was born in Winder, GA on November 2, 1897, to Judge Richard B. Russell, Sr. and Ina Dillard Russell, a teacher. He was the fourth of thirteen children and the first son. He earned a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Georgia in 1918. After a brief period practicing law, Russell ran for and won a seat in the Georgia House of Representatives in 1920. In 1927, he was elected Speaker of the House, a position he held until 1931. In 1930, Russell ran for governor against a crowded field of seasoned candidates, but he was victorious thanks to a grassroots campaign and his skill in door-to-door canvassing. He took the oath of office in June 1931 but only spent eighteen months as governor before the death of Senator William J. Harris presented him with the opportunity to run for the United States Senate.

Russell entered the U.S. Senate in 1933 and served until his death in 1971. He became one of the Senate's most influential members. During his tenure, he served sixteen years as chair of the Armed Services Committee and held a seat on the Appropriation Committee that spanned his tenure in the Senate. Additionally, Russell held positions on the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, the Committee on Immigration, the Aeronautical and Space Sciences Committee, and the Democratic Policy and Democratic Steering Committees.

Although he wielded considerable power through these committee appointments, Russell did not seek a position in the Senate leadership. Instead, he supported the ambitions of his protégé, Senator Lyndon Johnson from Texas for majority whip and later for majority leader. Russell ended his career as president pro tempore of the Senate—a post reserved for the member with the longest tenure in the Senate—making him third in the line of presidential succession.

Russell was known for his support of national defense, non-interventionist foreign policy, and his advocacy for agricultural interests (particularly those in Georgia). Russell opposed the United States entangling itself in international conflicts, especially in Vietnam and the Congo. In agricultural policy, the creation of the National School Lunch Program in 1946 was his most significant achievement for the nation's farmers. The program had the double effect of providing nutritious meals for schoolchildren while avoiding an economic crash by giving farmers a way to sell their surplus produce.

Russell's opposition to civil rights legislation overshadowed his many legislative achievements. He began contesting civil rights legislation as early as 1935 when he joined other southern senators to block anti-lynching bills. Over three decades, Russell developed a reputation as a defender of "white traditions" and white supremacy.

During the Senate's debate of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Russell led the Southern Bloc in a sixty-day filibuster in an attempt to prevent the bill's passage, vowing to "resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races." The filibuster came to an end only after a partnership of moderate Republicans and northern Democrats introduced a compromise bill that garnered the sixty-seven votes needed to invoke cloture and end the filibuster. The substitute civil rights bill passed on June 19 by a margin of 73-27.

Though Russell advised against attempts to resist the Civil Rights Act at the state level, he remained unapologetic in his criticism of it. In a speech given in the Senate on June 18, 1964, Russell sought to encourage the other members of the Southern Bloc, saying "…there will never come a time when it will be necessary for any one of us to apologize for his conduct or his courage."

Russell left behind a list of political and legislative achievements and a reputation for mastery of legislative strategy. Despite his other distinctions, racial animus and obstructionism would become the most remembered aspects of his legacy. As biographer Gilbert Fite noted, Russell might well have achieved more, were it not for his racial views.

Subgroup C. United States Senatorial Papers

This subgroup of papers comprehensively reveals Richard Russell's activities as a United States senator representing the state of Georgia. The papers are divided into twenty series, two of which are closed; some files are restricted. Closed or restricted files are governed by donor agreement, Executive Orders, or privacy considerations. Not many files survived from Russell's first eleven years in office; the main series for this time period are Early Office, Political, Political Patronage, Personal, and a few files in General. In 1943 and 1944, Russell's staff members reorganized the office filing system, and from that point on, the files are very complete. The 1943 filing system places the incoming letter with a copy of Russell's reply (the yellows) attached, and the correspondence is filed by subject; these files compose the majority of the senatorial papers. Subsequent letters from the constituent and copies of Russell's replies on the same subject continued to be attached to the original correspondence and filed under the date of the latest communication from Russell. Theoretically, at the end of each Congress, these files would have been retired to storage (with the possible exception of case mail); in practice, however, there was no consistency to the length of time the subject files were retained in the active status. To respect provenance of the files and to preserve the utility of the cross reference copies, the subject files are subdivided so that within each series they are arranged chronologically by the most recent date of correspondence (with all other correspondence attached thereto). A second copy of a Russell letter (the pinks, or Cross-Reference Copies Series) was made and filed separately by correspondent's surname in a chronological file. Intra-Office Communications and Speech/Media are form files. If Russell personally dictated any portion of a letter or added a postscript, two extra copies on onionskin paper (one for the Winder office and one for the Washington office) were made and filed by subject (Dictation Series), separate from the yellow and pink copies. The flexibility of the system allowed for much divergence in filing according to the discretion of the staff member involved. Thus, as personnel changed, their interpretations on how broad or specific they should be were reflected in the filing system itself. For example, "Foreign Aid" under the General Series and "Foreign Relations" under Legislative Series. The filing system indicates that correspondence relating to proposed or pending legislation was filed under committee in Legislative and relating to action taken on passed legislation or programs administered by government agencies was filed accordingly in General. In reality, two subject headings as similar as foreign aid and foreign relations could easily be interfiled.

VI. Political , 1932-1971

( 216 box(es) (108.75 linear feet) ) ( (104.75 linear feet) )
Unlike other series in the senatorial papers, Political not only spans the entire senate career of Russell but also carries over the gubernatorial office with the 1932 senatorial campaign and the early senate office procedures through Russell's office filing reorganization circa 1943. This is reflected in the subseries: Political General, County Files, Special Name, Out-of-State, Newspaper File, and Senatorial Campaigns. Significant reorganization of the files occured in 1951-1952 when Personal General evolved into Personal Political. A subject file separate of general correspondence was set up under this new heading and material was usually separated from correspondence.
The Political series is a rich source of documentation for studying political campaigns in the mid-twentieth century. Russell's first campaign for national office was in 1932 when he ran for the United States Senate to fill the unexpired term of U. S. Senator William J. Harris. After a tough campaign, Russell was victorious against Charles Crisp, a United States representative. Russell's only other contested election was in 1936, when he defeated then-Governor Eugene Talmadge. The campaign files cover Senator Russell's campaigns of 1932, 1936, 1942, 1948, 1954, 1960, and 1966. In addition to the senatorial campaign files, the series contains files documenting Russell's unsuccessful 1952 race for United States president. The work of Senator Russell, his campaign staff, Democratic Party officials, and other individuals involved with this campaign at three of his campaign offices is documented in the files. The campaign files were generated from the Mayflower Hotel National Campaign Headquarters in Washington, D.C., the Conrad Hilton Convention Headquarters in Chicago, and Senator Russell's senate office. These files consist of correspondence, printed materials, speeches, press releases, newspaper clippings, radio and television transcripts, state delegate notebooks, mailing lists, financial papers, campaign contributions, campaign literature, and memorabilia. See also the 1952 scrapbooks, one of which is devoted especially to the campaign, and photographs. The Special Name files contain information at a particular point in time on specific individuals. Such individuals include Lyndon B. Johnson, Eugene Talmadge, Charles Crisp, Herman E. Talmadge, Ralph McGill, Strom Thurmond, Orval Faubus, and Barry Goldwater, among others. The other subseries mainly consist of general correspondence and materials. The County files reflect the support that Russell might expect within each county during an election year. The Out of State Political consists primarily of correspondence of a general political nature from individuals outside of Georgia.
A. Personal Political , 1942-1971
The Personal Political files are divided into two subsubseries based on arrangement of documents: 1. General Correspondene and material, arranged in reverse chronological order; 2. Subject Files, arranged alphabetically by subject and in reverse chronological order.

E. Special Name , 1933-1969
This file on people, according to Barboura (Babs) Raesly, Senator Russell's personal secretary (1957-1971), was considered special and was housed separately. It is recognized that folder headings reflect filing changes over the years. Researchers interested in Civil Rights would certainly want to look at this subseries, for Russell's staff attempted at one time to maintain a Civil Rights Special Names file. Special name files also appear in the Speech/Media and Legislative Series, but these were not considered political in nature.

G. Presidential Campaign , 1952-1953
The 1952 presidential campaign files were created by three different offices: Senator Russell's Senate office; Mayflower Hotel National Campaign Headquarters in D.C.; and the Conrad Hilton Convention Headquarters in Chicago. This along with the fact that these papers were found nearly twenty years later in the Capitol attic demostrates the lack of provenance. However, some order has been identified and the files have been arranged accordingly.
1. Correspondence Files , 1952-1953
These are divided into three sections based on content of documents: general correspondence, Georgia couties, and states. Each state usually has three folder headings (political presidential state name, and two labeled with just the state name). These folders were evidently produced by Senator Russell's Senate office, Mayflower Hotel National Campaign Headquarters, and the Conrad Hilton Convention Headquarters. The Senate office folder is usually marked "Pol. Pres. [state name]" and is arranged in reverse chronological order; the Mayflower fodler is alphabetical by correspondent's surname; and the contents of the Chicago folder is generally not arranged. Documents related to the Florida Primary are also found in the Subject Files.
