Scope Note

The papers are organized into seven series.

Series I PERSONAL PAPERS

In political terms, the life of Charles E. Merriam, Jr. spanned the second term of President Grant to the first election of Eisenhower. Born on November 15, 1874, he was the second son of the postmaster and proprietor of a general store in Hopkinton, Iowa. A revealing self-portrait is painted in his memoir "The Education of Charles E. Merriam" (see galley proofs Box 1, folder 11 and unpublished autobiographical fragments in Box 3). In this recollection, Merriam reveals how the political implications of his father's position in a village of 600 introduced him to politics. Similarly, he acknowledges the influence of his brother John, later President of the Carnegie Corporation, in developing his interest in the scientific study of society.

Like his older brother, Charles began his education at Lenox College in Hopkinton and went on to study law briefly at Iowa State University. He then went on to graduate study in the social sciences at Columbia where he met among others William A. Dunning his mentor, John W. Burgess, and E. R. A. Seligman. These men were influences throughout the early part of Merriam's career. Special note should be taken of Merriam's recommendations (Box 1, folder 17 and Boxes 4-8).

This section also contains Merriam's notes taken during the year 1899 and 1900 when he was in Berlin and Paris. Merriam's interest in European scholarship in the social sciences made for the Spelman Fund and the Social Science Research Council in the 1920s (Box 11). In addition, Box 10 contains documentation relating to Merriam's appointment as Commissioner to Italy in behalf of George Creel's Committee on Public Information during World War I.

Series II GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE

The general correspondence has been broken down into five chronological sequences. The letters in this section are of a general nature whereas the correspondence relating to specific matters within his professional and governmental spheres of activity has been placed in Series V and VI.

Within each chronological sequence the correspondence is arranged alphabetically by individual or organization.

Series III CHICAGO POLITICS

Perhaps the collection's strongest feature is the section on early twentieth century Chicago politics. Merriam's aldermanic papers and related general correspondence provide vivid insights into politics at the ward level. There are also considerable materials from his two mayoralty and four aldermanic campaigns. These materials are supplemented by papers that belonged to Harold Gosnell, Merriam's colleague in the Department of Political Science, and by a box from the files of Alderman Charles S. Eaton of the Fifth Ward.

Merriam was motivated to observe and to participate in practical politics to better understand political theory. Only in this way, he believed, could one develop new and more accurate theories. As a student in New York, Merriam had become interested in urban politics, particularly in the mayoralty campaign of Columbia's President Seth Low. While in Europe he had witnessed the activity of one of his professors, Preuss, on the Berlin City Council. His first involvement in Chicago politics came in 1905 when the City Club requested him to do a study of the city's municipal revenue. His findings were published in a series of articles by the Chicago Tribune (Box 71, folder 7) and gained Merriam some public notice. This led to his appointment to the Chicago Harbor Commission in 1907. In that capacity he studied the city's water and shipping facilities in order to implement the Chicago City Plan.

After his initial political activity, Merriam decided to seek elective office in 1909. Remembering Preuss' experience, he ran for Alderman from the old Seventh Ward. It was his intention to spend twenty years in the City Council. Soon after he entered the Council, Merriam introduced an ordinance for a Commission to Investigate City Expenditures (Boxes 80-85). Mayor Busse, himself a Republican, obliged by naming Merriam to head the investigating body. The graft of the "Merriam Commission" uncovered led the embarrassed City Council to enjoin the Commission's funds. However reform-minded civic leaders like Julius Rosenwald continued to finance its operation. More they induced Merriam to run for Mayor in 1911 (Box 74). In the city's first direct primary Merriam outpolled the combined total of his two opponents to capture the Republican nomination. Shorn of G.O.P. organization support Merriam relied upon Progressive assistance. In a campaign managed by Harold Ickes, Merriam was narrowly defeated by the Democratic candidate Carter Harrison, Jr. 177,923 to 160,791. In a virtually unprecedented action the defeated candidate published the sources of his campaign contributions (Box 74, folder 8).

Merriam's alienation of the regular Republican organization had cost him the 1911 election. On the other hand, the reputation he acquired in the City Council gained him national prominence in the Progressive movement. In the 1912 Presidential campaign Merriam widened his breach with the Republicans. A strong supporter of Senator LaFollette, Merriam campaigned for Theodore Roosevelt when the Wisconsin senator became ill. Numerous speeches and a significant tape recording (Box 73, folder 8) recall Merriam's thoughts at the time.

In 1913 Merriam returned to the City Council despite the fact that his ward had been gerrymandered to keep him out (Box 73, folder 9). He was re-elected in 1915 (Box 73, folder 10), but in 1917 he was defeated by five votes in a contested election in which there is considerable evidence of vote fraud (Box 73, folders 11-12).

While in Council Merriam attained membership in the important Finance Committee. Much of his committee work and other routine business can be found in Boxes 78-79. In his second term on City Council Merriam conducted the famous Chicago Crime Committee investigations (Boxes 86-88). The Committee report was one of the first documents to explore the social causes and remedies of crime.

Despite his narrow defeat in 1911 Merriam still held mayoral aspirations, but an attempt at the Republican nomination in 1915 would have been fruitless since Progressives could not vote in the G.O.P. primary. Hence Merriam held off until 1919, when he returned home to a belated campaign as "Captain Merriam". The campaign was ill-fated from the beginning and Merriam was swamped in the Republican Primary by incumbent Mayor William Hale Thompson. Despite the short duration of the campaign, the material from 1919 (Boxes 75-77) is the richest single source of speeches, endorsements, songs, literature, and election clubs in the collection.

Merriam's defeat in 1919 brought to a close the period of his most active participation in Chicago politics. His subsequent papers are mainly fragments from the nest three decades and relate to specific interests, among them welfare and crime. However the papers do indicate the extent to which Merriam was called upon for advice and support by other candidates seeking public office. In one sense they depict a continuing battle between Merriam and Mayor William Hale Thompson: the scholar-politician in the image of Woodrow Wilson versus the vulgar demagogue. Merriam's disdain for Thompson led him to support Mayor Dever, the Democratic candidate for re-election, against Thompson's attempt for a third term in 1927. Of particular interest from that campaign is a speech by Merriam (Box 89, folder 9) and a speech by Thompson denouncing Merriam (Box 89, folder 10). Additional light on the conflict is shed by Merriam in his 1948 Walgreen lectures (Box 279, folder 6).

In 1931 Merriam threw his support to Anton J. Cermak, in order to defeat Thompson. Box 90 contains speeches by Merriam and Thompson as well as by other public figures in this campaign. With Cermak's election Merriam was invited to become a member of the Mayor's Advisory Committee (Box 90, folder 9). Cermak also drew upon Leonard D. White to head the new Chicago Civil Service Commission. White's reports are found in Box 90, folder 14.

Merriam's activities in Chicago politics waned with his increased service to the federal government in the late 1930s. Because of his duties with the National Resources Planning Board, Merriam was unable to accept Mayor Kelly's invitation to head the Chicago Plan Commission (Box 92, folder 3). Late in life Merriam revived his interest in Chicago politics. In the 1947 campaign he participated in the successful contests of Mayor Kennelly (Box 92, folder 12) and of his son Robert who was elected Alderman of the Fifth Ward (folder 13).

Included in the Chicago politics section are two of Merriam's manuscripts in which he reminisces on the Chicago of his time. His famous Chicago: A More Intimate View of Urban Politics (1929) (Box 95) appears to be a refinement of the earlier unpublished version entitled "An Intimate View of Urban Politics" (Box 94). In both instances Merriam attempts to combine the theory of governing a city with his own practical experiences. More colorful and literary than his more academic works, Chicago had an impact on the general population as well as upon scholars.

Throughout his life Merriam was irritated by the overlapping functions and tax structures of the Chicago area's 1600 governments. In 1933 with Albert Lepawsky and Spencer D. Parratt he published The Government of the Metropolitan Region of Chicago. In this volume Merriam attempted to streamline the governmental structure of the Chicago region. He tried to offer solutions for problems which plagued the entire metropolitan vicinity, rather than just considering them at the level of individual subdivisions. Boxes 96-97 contain data and notes concerned with specific problems of government in the Chicago metropolitan region.

The Charles S. Eaton Papers

Box 93 contains the Fifth Ward Alderman Charles S. Eaton's papers from the City Council Committee on Public Health, which he headed during 1929-1930. These papers related to the investigation of the safety of electric refrigerators and reflect Merriam's constant concern with public health.

The Harold F. Gosnell Papers

Gosnell was a pupil of Merriam's who studied statistical aspects of local politics. He served as a member of the Department of Political Science in the interwar period. His papers in the collection number 19 boxes. Among them are a Precinct Captain Study that appeared as part of his book Machine Politics: Chicago Style (1937) (Boxes 97-100). In this study Gosnell accumulated data on the voting behavior of each of Chicago's fifty wards during the 1920s and 1930s (Boxes 99-100). Particularly noteworthy is his statistical analysis and article on the election of Fifth Ward Alderman Paul H. Douglas in 1939 (Box 99, folder 7). In addition Gosnell interviewed ward leaders and precinct captains to evaluate their influence and performance.

Of particular interest in the Gosnell papers is his collection of materials from Chicago election campaigns, 1928-1940 (Boxes 102-104). These materials provide a colorful panorama of the men and the issues in the Chicago politics of this period. Connected to these are the Assembly Bulletins for reports on General Assembly candidates and the recommendations of the Better Government Association and the Municipal Voters League for aldermen (Box 101).

The Gosnell papers also include three studies on Factorial and Correlational Analysis of Voting Behavior in Chicago between 1928 and 1936. Here Gosnell compared the relationships between various issues in voting behavior of different elections (Boxes 109-110). Also found in this section are Gosnell's studies on naturalization (Boxes 92-95). Here Gosnell did case studies on the socialization of immigrants in Chicago. Other materials pertain to studies dealing with the political influence of newspapers (Box 95), referendums (Box 96), statistical methods (Boxes 97-98) and the origin of party affiliation (Box 96). Miscellaneous papers deal with scattered data from Gosnell's award-winning book, Negro Politicians: The Rise of Negro Politics in Chicago (1935) and Non-Voting done with Charles E. Merriam in 1924 (Box 96).

Series IV: THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO

After receiving a PhD from Columbia University in 1900, Charles E. Merriam came to the University of Chicago where he was appointed Docent. He claims when he accepted the position he did not intend to spend the rest of his life there. Nevertheless, despite continuing disagreements with the administration over policy matters and a great number of attractive offers to go elsewhere, Merriam remained at Chicago until his retirement in 1940. He continued to work in his office as Professor Emeritus of Political Science until shortly before his death in 1953.

In his early years Merriam spent a term as Dean, but he had little relish for tasks of administration. Despite this disdain, he assumed the position of Chairman of the Department of Political Science in 1923, but only after receiving long-run guarantees of freedom of action. It was his intention to build a department that would focus on behavioral rather than classical political science. This distinctive (for its time) emphasis on empirical studies became known as the "Chicago School of Political Science." Under Merriam's guidance from 1923 to 1940 the department attracted outstanding faculty and graduate students.

The materials dealing with the University of Chicago found in the Charles E. Merriam papers are not extensive; particularly small are the papers of the Department of Political Science (Boxes 117-119). Box 117 contains some of Merriam's early grade books and some interesting correspondence with his secretary about the day-to-day routine of the department in 1940-1941 while Merriam was Visiting Professor at Harvard University. The remainder of the departmental papers consist of miscellaneous memoranda arranged by year (Box 118) and proposals for research in various fields of political science (Box 119).

Among other papers relating to the University of Chicago, Box 121 is the most important. It contains papers from the Senate Committee on Research headed by Merriam in the late 1930s, including a survey of faculty opinion on research at the University. In response to the committee's questionnaire many faculty members gave their unequivocal opinions of the regime of President Robert M. Hutchins. The remaining boxes deal with proposals for an Institute of Politics (Box 122) and material from the Social Science Research Committee (Box 123).

Series V: PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

Merriam's political failures enabled him to concentrate on academic matters and to devote time to the numerous professional organization with which he was affiliated. However, the material in this section often sheds more light on the activities of the professional associations than upon Merriam's role in them, for they are basically transcripts of conference proceedings, committee memoranda, minutes, and reports.

Merriam was an advocate of the interaction of the social sciences. He also emphasized the utilization of the scientific method in political science. Accordingly in 1924 he founded and became chairman of the Social Science Research Council (Boxes 130-143) which was designed to promote cooperative endeavors among the disciplines and to train specialized social scientists through the granting of fellowships.

Merriam was instrumental in initially securing foundation money for academic purposes. By the mid-1920s he already had influential connections with the Rockefeller Foundation through his friendship with and influence on the much younger Beardsley Ruml. At his urging the Rockefeller Foundation financed a Committee on Local Community Research at the University of Chicago. The University became a center for research in the social sciences, and politics in particular. The Spelman Fund (Boxes 144-158) was created from the Rockefeller Foundation in 1928. The removal of the name "Rockefeller" served not only to limit suspicion about the Foundation's motives, but gave Merriam, who served as President and Trustee, greater independence and larger resources. Of particular interest in the papers is Box 156 which explains "Operation Merriam", the elderly professor's last five years (1947-1952) of research projects financed by the Spelman Fund.

The Spelman Fund provided an organizational framework for the cooperation of scholarship with public agencies. Eventually this led to concentration in the field of public administration in order to raise the level of its professional standards. As funds for the study of governmental and administrative reform were granted to organizations, the need for a clearing house became obvious. The result was the establishment of the 1313 building on the University of Chicago campus. These "1313 Organizations" (Boxes 159-165) not only made information readily available to scholars but also attracted top experts in the field of public administration. Among them was Louis Brownlow the Director of the Public Administration Clearing House (PACH). Brownlow's unpublished diary, found in Box 163-165, is one of only six copies in existence.

The man one newspaper report called "The scholar in politics, or perhaps the politician who is a scholar" was honored in 1924 with the presidency of the American Political Science Association, in which he maintained an interest until his death (Box 126). Other nongovernmental organizations with which Merriam was involved were the Commission on the Freedom of the Press (Boxes 127-128), and the Jefferson National Memorial Expansion Association (Box 129). Folder 4 of Box 313 (section seven) pertains to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial Foundation.

Series VI: GOVERNMENT SERVICE

In terms of size, the papers resulting from Merriam's government service are the most extensive in the collection, possibly because they are among his most recent papers. Like the materials in section five, these papers shed more light on the workings of the organizations than they do on Merriam's role in them. They consist mainly of minutes, research studies, memoranda, correspondence, and committee reports.

Merriam had been tapped for governmental service early, but had declined because of his more immediate interest in Chicago politics. Thus he had refused appointment to President Taft's Commission on Economy and Efficiency and President Wilson's twelve-year term on the Tariff Commission. Yet he maintained the hope that better relationships between government and scientific social research could materialize. His appointment by President Hoover to the President's Research Committee on Social Trends (Boxes 267-272) in 1929 became a mean of realizing that ambition. The task of the Committee was to examine every aspect of society in order to make recommendations that would enable institutions to meet problems precipitated by technological development. Merriam served as vice-chairman of the committee and wrote the section of the committee's report that dealt with governmental trends (Box 270).

The Committee's report (Box 271) which recommended the establishment of a high level government agency for planning evidently made an impression on President Franklin D. Roosevelt, for in 1933 he established the National Planning Board (Boxes 169-171) in the Department of the Interior. Along with Frederic A. Delano and Wesley C. Mitchell, Merriam was appointed to the Board. Later it became known as the National Resources Committee (Boxes 173-215). A variety of technical committees employing a substantial number of academic personnel were set up to examine such problems as education, land use, public works, transportation, uranium, and water resources.

In 1939 the agency became an independent bureau in the Executive Office of the President. Renamed the National Resources Planning Board (Boxes 216-259) it functioned until 1943 when Congress cut off its funds. Merriam had tired of his decade of commuting to Washington and had hoped to quit the NRPB after his retirement from the University of Chicago. But the outbreak of World War II placed additional burdens of wartime and post-war planning on the agency and prohibited Merriam's resignation.

The enormous tasks of economic reconstruction resulting from the depression caused a proliferation in New Deal agencies. Although admittedly not an expert in the field of administration, Merriam suggested to President Roosevelt the importance of inquiring into the overall management of the government. Roosevelt was anxious to tie national planning to executive organization. Hence he established the President's Committee on Administrative Management (Boxes 260-266) consisting of Chairman Louis Brownlow, Luther Gulick, and former Illinois Governor Frank O. Lowden. When Lowden could not serve, Merriam was appointed to replace him in the study of governmental reorganization.

Merriam last officially served the federal government at the request of President Truman, when he was a member of the Loyalty Review Board (Boxes 166-168) in 1948-1949.

Series VII: MISCELLANEOUS MANUSCRIPTS

Section seven consists of miscellaneous Merriam manuscripts, articles, and speeches arranged by subject. Other writings were included under the appropriate heading, bureau, or organization. Hence his writings about Chicago appear in Section III, those pertaining to the NRPB in Section VI and articles concerning Jefferson are found in Section V. Section VII also includes book reviews by

Merriam (Box 273) reviews of his books (Box 274), and a bibliography of his writings (Box 274, folder 1).

Merriam's work reflects his nonacademic activity. While his reputation was made in political theory, his interests were in political behavior which he believed to be the ultimate basis of theory. In terms of evolution his career begins and ends with theory. Sandwiched in between these two is the era of his Chicago political activity and service to the federal government. His writings from these times reflect his experience.

Merriam's doctoral thesis, History of the Theory of Sovereignty since Rousseau (1906) is cast in the traditional historical methods of the time. The influence of Dunning is most clearly evident in the book that earned for Merriam a place in his profession, A History of American Political Theories (1903). This volume which runs to the Civil War and a later sequence American Political Ideas (1920) parallel Dunning's method of historical classification and description. As did Dunning, Merriam analyzes economic and social factors in the development of American political thought. The uniqueness of Merriam's approach stems from his classification of political actors as "theorists." The collection contains several boxes of notes (Boxes 297-299) that presumably relate to these works. Merriam's weakening dependence on Dunning is evidenced in the memorial volume he edited with Harry Elmer Barnes in 1924. Although in honor of his late mentor, A History of Political Theories: Recent Times contains examples of his work relevant to political theory in related fields such as psychology, economics, sociology, and anthropology.

The independence of his approach is demonstrated by New Aspects of Politics, published in 1925. Characteristically, Merriam attempts to show the relationship of politics to fields like biology and psychology. The book is a collection of papers drawn from conferences of social scientists. Some of the notes and articles on which the book is based are found in Boxes 296 and 300. New Aspects urges political science to adopt the scientific methods of other social and natural sciences, but cautions against an emerging determinism in these fields.

Merriam's editorship of a series dealing with civic education in various countries is part of his commitment to tie American scholarship to international social sciences. The manuscript of his The Making of Citizens (1931) is found in Box 285. (Boxes 283 and 286 contain related materials.) His papers connected with the American Historical Association volume on Civic Education in the United States (1934) are located in Boxes 124-125.

His work in this area is tied to that in the field of democratic theory. Merriam was a cautious innovator. A firm believer in the virtues of democracy, he attempted to show that the scientific study of politics was compatible with that type of political system. His major work in that area, The New Democracy and the New Despotism (1939) is contained in Boxes 287-289. The outbreak of World War II compelled Merriam to justify national planning by democratic states when the enemies of the United States were advocates of state socialism. This task is accomplished by the publication of his 1940 Walgreen Lectures under the title of What is Democracy? (Box 291) and his 1941 Godkin Lectures at Harvard University On the Agenda of Democracy (Box 290).

Similarly Merriam felt compelled to redefine "power" against the perversion engendered by the rise of German fascism. The result of this endeavor, Political Power-Its Composition and Incidence (1934) (Box 301) was to reconcile European analysis with the traditions of his own society. Merriam's later writings reflect a gradual return to problems earlier considered fundamental but laid aside because of direct involvement in the study of political behavior. His last books are more developed attempts to reconcile political theory and democratic government. While they were more cognizant of the problem of social change, they limited themselves to an analysis of democratic systems. The Role of Politics in Social Change (1936) (Box 302) seems to link his major theoretical works, Political Power and Systematic Politics. Other brief works which perform the same function are Prologue to Politics (1939) and Public and Private Government (1944) (Box 300). The culmination of the resolution of theory with the realities of political research in the modern world was Merriam's Systematic Politics (1945) (Boxes 304-306). Merriam had begun along these lines forty years before, only to be discouraged by Dunning, who cautioned his career would be spent on the defensive at an early age. Because he had postponed his task to an advanced age, a sequel, "Government and the Economic Order," (Boxes 281-282) was never published.

Merriam's nontheoretical writings paralleled his particular interests at the time of publication. A considerable number of governmental reports are found in the collection. Articles and miscellaneous materials relating to Primary Elections, and American parties and institutions are found in Box 278. Many folders relate indirectly to his volumes on Primary Elections (1908), and The American Party System (1922). A galley proof of his The Written Constitution and the Unwritten Attitude (1931) is also located there. The only Merriam manuscript of a book dealing with American politics is The American Government (Boxes 275-277) written with his son Robert and published posthumously in 1954.

Throughout Section VII are drafts of many lectures he delivered near the close of his career. many of the most significant deal with presidential and party leadership and appear related to his book Four American Party Leaders (1926). Quite often these lectures are in the form of personal reminiscences. Among the most important of these is his 1948 Walgreen address, "An Analysis of Some Political Personalities I Have Known" (Box 279, folder 6).

Other miscellaneous papers are concerned with planning (Boxes 294-295) and public administration (Boxes 307-309). These are from his period of governmental service and are related to sections discussed earlier. Truly a political scientist of diversified interest and great concern for humanity, Merriam became more interested in international politics toward the close of his life. His interest in problems associated with atomic energy is best illustrated by his 1947 Walgreen lectures, "Physics and Politics" (Box 292, folder 22).

Charles E. Merriam, Jr. died suddenly in Washington, D. C. on January 8, 1953, and was buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Material about his illness and a memorial service that followed his death are in Box 1, folder 10.

Related papers in the University of Chicago Department of Special Collection are those of his son Robert E. Merriam, the Edith and Grace Abbott Papers, the Louis Brownlow Diaries, the Commission on the Freedom of the Press, the William Rainey Harper Papers, the University Presidents' Papers, the Papers of Beardsley Ruml, and the Quincy Wright Papers. The Julius Rosenwald Papers contain significant documents related to the 1911 mayoralty campaign, and the William Fielding Ogburn Papers deal with the National Resources Committee and the President's Research Committee on Social Trends. In addition the biographical files of the archives contain a folder on Merriam.

Series II: General Correspondence

The General Correspondence is divided into five chronological subseries which correspond to the periods of Merriam's life. Each series is arranged alphabetically; thus letters from lifelong acquaintances, like Harold Ickes, are found in more than one series.

Other correspondence relating to specific organizations is found in the appropriate sections, rather than in the General Correspondence.

Merriam's early years at the University are reflected in Subseries 1. Much of the correspondence is professional and administrative-student recommendations, etc. There are, however, numerous letters which reveal Merriam's more scholarly interests and his developing concern for city planning. Among his scholarly activities during these early years he concentrated in the field of Primary Elections. Throughout the series are letters which request materials or seek his advice in this area.

Coinciding with his personal development as a scholar is his emergence as a leading figure in political science and the correspondence with his colleagues shows him already a respected member of his profession. Some important academicians with whom he corresponded are noted in the index. Of particular interest is the wide-ranging and personal exchange of letters with William A. Dunning, who taught Merriam at Columbia. Among the items they discuss is an appointment offered Merriam by the University of Illinois.

In addition to the scholarly side of Merriam's career, Subseries 1 also reflects his involvement with the practical workings of government: the Chicago Harbor Commission, the City Club report on municipal revenues, and the several charter conventions of the period.

Subseries 2: 1909-1919. In the second decade of the 20th century Merriam shifted his energy to his work as the Seventh Ward Alderman and to his service on various Chicago bureaus and commission, including the Bureau of Public Efficiency, the Chicago Crime Commission, and the Commission of Public Welfare. His constituents addressed him on problems ranging from crime, graft, and corruption, to street lighting an the removal of ashes, the last being a particularly vexing problem in the Seventh Ward. Collectively these letters provide a vivid picture of urban neighborhood life and condition in the period just before World War I.

Especially impressive are the activities of the many neighboring improvement association to which Merriam gave full encouragement. Many important local figures like Jane Addams and Clarence Darrow are noted in the index. Merriam's activities in the progressive Party are represented in this series by correspondence with figures such as Hiram Johnson, Gifford Pinchot and Elihu Root. Theodore Roosevelt discusses in his letter campaign techniques and principles as well as the future of the Party. A number of University faculty members and fellow academicians are also found in this series; they have been noted in the index.

Subseries 3: 1920-1932, covers the years when Merriam became firmly established as one of the most eminent figures in his field. With the death of Dunning, Columbia University offered Merriam Dunning's chair (Box 35, folder 1) but he decided to remain at Chicago as head of the Department of Political Science where he was free to develop his behavioral approach to the study of politics. At Chicago he developed as excellent faculty and graduate student body; many of the letters in this series relate to the reorganization of the Department. Important individuals at the University are noted in the index.

Merriam was a principal leader in organizing research in the social sciences on a nationwide scale; he served as President of the American Political Science Association, Chairman of its Committee on Political Research, member of the President's Research Committee on Social Trends, and was influential in establishing the Social Science Research Council. An important trend toward support of large-scale research projects in the social sciences by philanthropic foundations developed in the 1920s and Merriam, with his ties with the Russell Sage Foundation, the Spelman Fund, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation, played a leading role, which is reflected in this subseries.

The Making of Citizens, a series of comparative studies on methods of civic training commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation and edited by Merriam, is represented from the planning to the acceptance by the scholarly community. For the planning stages, see Edmund E. Day and Guy S. Ford of the Rockefeller Foundation. Contributors included Robert Michels, Samuel N. Harper, John M. Gaus, Oscar Jaszi, Herbert W. Schneider, Paul Kosok, Robert C. Brooks, Carleton J. H. Hayes, and Elizabeth Weber.

Particular attention in Subseries IV should be drawn to Merriam's work on the Social Science Research Council's Committee on Commission of Inquiry and his work with the federal government, especially with Luther Guluck and Louis Brownlow on the President's Committee on Administrative Management and his service on the National Resources Planning Board. As in the previous series, individuals of note are listed in the index.

Subseries 5: 1944-1952 of Merriam's correspondence assumes a conversational tone, especially in the exchanges with Louis Brownlow, Luther Gulick, Beardsley Ruml, and Harold Lasswell. His notable works include the Commission on Freedom of the Press, the Loyalty Review Board and the 1313 organizations.

Series III: Chicago Politics

This section is arranged in chronological order. Box 71 contains miscellaneous materials, including articles, speeches, and memoranda by Merriam on Chicago politics at the turn of the century. Box 72 deals with charter conventions from the same period. Materials from Merriam's four Aldermanic contests and the Progressive Party campaign of 1912 are found in Box 73, while his papers from the mayoralty campaign of 1911 are located in Box 74. Boxes 75-77 contain the materials from his second campaign for mayor in 1919. Papers from Merriam's service on City Council, including the Crime Committee, are located in Boxes 78-88. An interesting letter from Merriam to Samuel Insull concerning the utilities question in is Box 78, folder 4.

Following these items, miscellaneous papers are grouped by period; Box 89 deals with politics in the 1920s; Box 90 concerns itself with the early 1930s including the election and administration of Mayor Anton J. Cermak; the rest of the decade is located in Box 91; Box 92 reaches through the remainder of Merriam's life.

In Box 93 are located papers relevant to the investigation of the safety of electric refrigerators conducted by Alderman Charles S. Eaton of the Fifth Ward. This is followed by two boxes of manuscripts for Merriam's books on Chicago politics. Finally, Boxes 96 and 97 deal with Merriam's works on the regional politics of the Chicago area. The papers of Professor Harold F. Gosnell (Boxes 98-116) close out the Chicago Politics section.

Series VI: Governmental Services

Series Six includes papers from Merriam's service with agencies of the federal government, including the Loyalty Review Board, the National Planning Board, the National Resources Committee, the National Resources Planning Board, the President's Committee on Administrative Management, and the President's Research Committee on Social Trends.

It is important to note that the committees of each of the three planning boards remained intact throughout their two reorganizations. Hence, while material on the Water Resources Committee, for example, is found in each of the files of the National Planning Board, the National Resources Committee, and the National Resources Planning Board, it is in reality the same operational committee. The same is true of the other technical committees involved.

Boxes 272 and 272a contain thirteen folders of raw data-statistics, graphs, reprints, research notes and accompanying letters on various subjects. Although miscellaneous, the data appears to have some connection with the research activities of V. O. Key and the President's Research Committee on Social Trends, even though it is impossible to establish any definite relationship.

Among the subjects are population; labor; corporation trends; and state, federal and local government administrative and legislative behavior. The latter materials are concerned with reapportionment, legislative composition, committees, voting behavior and Primary Elections. Other data cover revenue, economic and social trends and the role of the public defender.

Series VII: Writings

The final section of the papers of Charles E. Merriam consists of miscellaneous articles, manuscripts, and speeches arranged by the following subjects; American parties and politics; business, labor and government; democracy and citizenship; atomic energy; international politics; planning; political theory; public administration; and urbanism. Within each of these subdivisions are found various drafts of Merriam's works. Unfortunately some of the manuscripts of his longer works are either incomplete or are not in the proper page order.

Preceding Merriam's manuscripts is a collection of his book reviews arranged alphabetically by author (Box 273), and one containing reviews of his own books (Box 274). The last box of the collection (Box 313) consists of miscellaneous papers and speeches that do not fit into any specific category.
