Provenance

The portions of these papers, including personal and family correspondence, created prior to Lewis F. Powell, Jr.'s joining the Supreme Court in 1972 were stored in his Hunton & Williams law firm office in the Electric Building in Richmond, Virginia or in that firm's storage facility known as the Presbyterian Building. Most of these pre-court papers were deposited at the Virginia Historical Society in August 1983.

In 1988, Justice Powell authorized the writing of his biography by University of Virginia (UVA) law professor John C. Jeffries Jr. In December 1989, Powell announced his decision to leave his papers to Washington and Lee University (W & L) to be housed in a specially constructed facility at the School of Law. Before going to W & L, however, personal and professional papers, which had been on deposit at the Virginia Historical Society, along with selected Supreme Court files, were transferred to the UVA School of Law's Special Collections department, for use in Professor Jeffries' biography. At Powell's request, the papers were housed there in courtesy storage for four years. Only Jeffries and his research assistants were allowed access to the papers during this period.

Papers from Powell's tenure on the Supreme Court (1972-1987) were stored in his chambers and in a storage room in the court building. In the Spring of 1989, as part of the project mentioned above, Professor Jeffries was allowed to have selected files (which were, for the most part, files of cases in which Powell wrote the Court opinion or a dissenting opinion) shipped to the UVA Law Library. Most of the Court files not chosen by Jeffries were shipped to W & L on March 4, 1992.

Powell's son, Lewis F. Powell III, located ten bound volumes of his father' s law school notes in a Hunton & Williams storage facility in the late 1980's. These volumes were kept in Lewis III's Hunton & Williams office until February 1991 when they were shipped to Professor Jeffries at the UVA law school. He, in turn, sent them to the W & L law school when he had finished with them.

The papers held in courtesy storage at UVA were moved to W & L in two shipments: September 8, 1992, and August 31, 1993. Subsequently some small additions have been mailed from the court to W & L.

On December 3, 1996, all Powell papers remaining at the Supreme Court were shipped to Washington and Lee School of Law in anticipation of the January 7, 1997 closing of Justice Powell's Supreme Court chambers. This shipment of 210 cubic feet of materials included: 110 cubic feet of papers; the Powell chambers' library; fine art; photographs; awards; and artifacts (including Justice Powell's Supreme Court bench chair). Most of these papers are from after Powell's 1987 retirement from the Supreme Court and include extensive documentation of Powell's work as an extra judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals. Approximately three feet of these papers came from Justice and Mrs. Powell's Washington apartment. In February 1999, shortly after the chambers closing, a final 16 cu. ft. of materials were transferred from the Supreme Court. Of this accession, 12 ft. were records and the remaining 4 ft. were artifacts.

The papers resided at W & L School of Law under a deposit agreement with Justice Powell. They were opened to researchers under the terms of this deposit agreement in April 1994. Following the 1998 death of Justice Powell, title to the papers passed to the School of Law by terms of his will.

In May 1999, approximately 35 cu. ft. of books, papers, photographs, and artifacts from Justice Powell's Richmond, Virginia home were transferred to the Powell Archives. Artifacts from Powell's student days at W & L and from his military service were included in this accession.

Scope and Content Information

The Lewis F. Powell Jr. Papers document the life of this Richmond, Virginia attorney and Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The papers span the years 1921-1998(some few items of family history pre-date this period)and document his legal career; military service in World War II; leadership positions in varied civic and professional organizations; and friendships and family relations. Documentation of his work as an attorney is limited, as client files remain with his former law firm, Hunton & Williams. At one hundred forty two cubic feet, Supreme Court case files, 1972-1987, constitute almost half of the collection.

Organization

The papers are arranged in twelve subgroups. There are also oversized materials that are housed separately for preservation purposes. The first eleven subgroups represent different aspects of Powell's life and career. The final subgroup contains series of materials by form. These materials had never been integrated into the preceding larger body of papers. Most series are divided into subseries. Further divisions beneath this level are common.

Contents List

Biographical Materials 1900-1995.

The Biographical Materials fill two five-inch boxes. The series Biographical & Historical Memoranda is of special interest. Many of these memoranda express the common theme of Powell's concern about historical misinterpretation of his actions. This concern is most strongly expressed in his memoranda dealing with the desegregation of Richmond schools during his school board presidency.

      This series spans more years than any other portion of the papers, covering the entire period during which Powell practiced law.

      This correspondence is arranged alphabetically by correspondent, and chronologically thereunder. A name index of correspondents, for this and other series of correspondence, is available at the Powell Archives website

    • Subject Correspondence 1938-1971.

      Subject correspondence is a series dealing primarily with topics rather than individuals. These topics range from congratulatory and "get well" correspondence to exchanges about national defense, the interposition doctrine as espoused by "massive resistors" of the 1950's, and atomic energy contracts ("Dixon-Yates Controversy").

      The "Interposition" file includes letters of congratulations following Powell's January 16, 1956 Commonwealth Club debate with James J. Kilpatrick, and a never mailed twelve page letter to Virginia's Governor Stanley. This file complements the 1956 interposition file in Series 2.4 (speeches, statements and writings) which contains his never-published article on interposition.

      Also part of this subseries are letters received in response to Powell's 1971 article, published in the Richmond Times Dispatchand reprinted elsewhere, entitled "Civil Repression: Fact Or Fiction." This was the last piece he wrote for publication before his nomination to the Supreme Court.

    • Correspondence.
      • Wife and Children 1942-1998.

        The subseries Correspondence is divided into the following categories: a) with Powell's wife and children b) about his children c) with his parents, his stepmother, and his wife's family d) with Powell's brother and sisters and their spouses e) with other close relatives

        The correspondence "a) With Wife and Children" is further divided into separate chronologically arranged files for his wife and each of the children. There are also files devoted to letters addressed to more than one of the children.

        The subseries of correspondence with Powell's wife, Jo, includes World War II letters along with a smattering from other periods. The correspondence with the children is extensive. Work forced Powell to be away from home frequently. Even when working in Richmond, his long hours sometimes limited his contact with his family. Thus the letters--and memoranda--to his children fill three cubic feet. He never stinted on giving advice, whether reviewing film of his son's baseball batting stance, considering a daughter's choice of dates, or setting down after school rules for study and exercise. These letters mixing expressions of his concern and advice with equal amounts of pride and affection continued with increased frequency as the children left home for college and established their own careers. When, in time, they married and had children of their own, a new generation was introduced to Powell's advice via correspondence. His interest in and concern for his children also accounts for the correspondence "re children."

        In addition to writing to each of his children individually, Powell frequently wrote letters addressed to all of the children and their families during his tenure on the Supreme Court. These letters, of course, reported news about all of the children, their spouses, and the grandchildren, and included unsolicited advice to all. They served two other purposes, as well. Because of his position on the Court, Justice Powell no longer felt free to discuss politics and world affairs with friends and associates. He used these letters as safe and confidential vehicles to vent his opinions on social and political matters. The letters also form a kind of diary of Powell's time in Washington. He emphasized the social aspects of his and Mrs. Powell's life. A typical letter might include an account of a White House state dinner, a listing of Mrs. Powell's club activities and the names of neighbors and dignitaries who had recently dined in the Powells' apartment. Though he never divulged his or the court's thinking on pending cases, he distributed slip opinions to all of the children after decisions were announced. (He discussed his Supreme Court opinions at greater length in correspondence addressed individually to Molly and, especially, to Lewis during their respective times in law school.) He did occasionally discuss personalities on the court, and his basic approach to deciding cases.

    • Subject Files 1936-1988.

      The Subject Files are dominated by correspondence and records concerning Bear Island, a plantation in Hanover County, Virginia that had been the childhood home of Powell's mother, Mary Lewis Gwathmey. Powell spent much time there as a child, as did his children, in their turn. Later it served as a family retreat and gathering place. Powell's painful--and later regretted--decision to sell this property is extensively documented here. Also present in this subseries are records of the Powells' 1969 African safari, including Josephine R. Powell's diary of the experience.

      Note:Permission of the archivist is required before using these records.

      In addition to general records, the "Financial and Legal Papers" include files specifically about contributions, insurance, investments, real estate holdings, bank borrowing, tax returns, trusts and wills. As one would expect, the "Memos to Executors" that accompany Powell's wills contain information on such subjects as Powell's complex finances and his wife's separate estate. Also present, however, are letters to his wife expressing his hopes for his children's futures, detailed funeral and burial plans, and mention of some records management decisions he had made concerning his Supreme Court papers.

      The "Real Estate" records form the largest portion of this subseries. Real property holdings of Powell's wife and mother-in-law are treated here, as are properties he owned jointly with his wife. Properties he owned in his own right and through his development company, Huguenot Land Corporation, are also documented.

      The "Trusts" deal with legal instruments for both Powell's own family members, and the children of Powell's World War II friend, Lowell P. Weicker. Powell was the executor of the Weicker trusts.

  • Speeches, Statements, and Writings 1937-1971.

    Speeches, Statements, and Writings (7 cu.ft.), includes: lists of selected speeches; the speeches and writings themselves; and materials related to the speeches and writings. This last category includes: drafts; correspondence about travel and publication arrangements; and research materials.

    A frequent public speaker throughout his career, no one knows how many speeches Powell delivered. The speeches and writings in this subseries--and throughout these papers--should not be considered as the complete body of Powell's work. References are made throughout the papers to speeches not found here. Certain other portions of these papers contain speeches and informal talks which are not present in this series. (See also: Speeches, Interviews and Writings series in United States Supreme Court and Retirement subgroups for speeches made after 1971.)

    One folder containing lists of selected speeches precedes the speeches themselves. These lists represent at least three unpublished compilations of Powell speeches. One was made just before Powell became American Bar Association President-Elect. The second was done immediately following Powell's ABA Presidency. The last was assembled for his Supreme Court nomination hearings.

  • World War II Historical Studies 1962-1996.

    Historical Studies & Interviews contains materials from thirty years and more after Powell left active service. The allies' ability to break the German Ultra code remained a U.S. government security classified secret until the mid-1970's. Powell never spoke or wrote about these activities during this period of secrecy. When the activities of Powell and his cohorts became declassified public knowledge, there followed a period of intense interest on the part of the news media and historians.

    Finally able to talk publicly, Powell eagerly corresponded with historians and former associates. He offered several authors extensive assistance and granted oral history interviews in his Supreme Court chambers. One of these projects culminated in the publication of Ultra and the Army Air Forces in World War II. This work, subtitled An Interview with Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Lewis F. Powell, Jr., was published by the Office of Air Force History. Memoranda, notes and diary entries from the first series of this subgroup appear as appendices in this book.

Law Firm (Hunton & Williams) Records 1945-1972.

Though Powell spent thirty-eight years at Hunton & Williams the subgroup, Law Firm (Hunton & Williams) Records (5.5 cu. ft.), is not extensive. For reasons of client confidentiality and corporate records management, all of his client files remained with the firm's records. (For records of Powell's lawyering, see the civic and corporate series of the Board Memberships subgroup.) What can be found here is a small series of correspondence on two specific topics, memoranda, a forms file containing exemplar legal documents, some few firm financial statements, and "housekeeping" records. This last mentioned series contains what are potentially the most interesting materials in the subgroup. The "Time Tickets, 1956-1971" form a record of how Powell expended his billable and pro bono hours. His personal calendars show his appointments from 1949 to 1971.

Professional Associations 1937-1971.

The subgroup Professional Associations (35 cu. ft.) contains Powell's files concerning his memberships, and the offices he held, in a variety of legal associations.

  • American Bar Association 1937-1971.

    American Bar Association includes records from the time Powell joined the ABA's Junior Bar Conference in 1937 until he joined the Supreme Court. His extensive committee work records, alone, run some nine feet. Powell's service in a variety of offices is documented here. These include: chairman of the Junior Bar Conference; member of the House of Delegates and Board of Governors; president-elect; and president. There is also a long run of general correspondence from 1952 to 1971.

    Among the voluminous committee records, those pertaining to the Economics of Law Practice Committee are especially notable. Powell had a career long interest in improving law firm management, as can be seen in several of his speeches. The first ABA Lawyer's Handbook was published under Powell's chairmanship of this committee.

    The campaign that made Powell president-elect was hard fought, as had been his first election for the House of Delegates. It is interesting to note the similarities between the meticulous planning and the gathering of endorsements in these campaigns, and the later preparation for his Supreme Court nomination hearings. Powell may have learned important lessons in his work on the ABA presidential campaigns on behalf of his fellow Washington & Lee alumnus and friend Ross Malone. Records from these Malone campaigns are present, as well.

    Powell's presidential papers are dominated by documentation of the agenda he brought to this office: legal ethics reform, legal services to the poor and the establishment of standards for the administration of criminal justice. During his time in the ABA's top office, he also played a vital role in passage of the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution regarding presidential disability and succession.

    Powell also used his influence in the ABA as an opportunity to promote the establishment in schools and colleges of educational programs about communism. This is reflected, not only in his presidential papers, but throughout his ABA records. In 1961, Powell introduced a resolution in the House of Delegates calling for "adequate instruction in the history, doctrines, objectives and techniques of Communism." He chaired the special committee established to implement this resolution. In 1962, this committee published the pamphlet "Instruction on Communism and Its Contrast With Liberty Under Law." All of this is extensively documented here.

    Powell made hundreds of speeches as president-elect and president. He had these bound into two record volumes which are in this subseries. Volume II includes clippings. Hundreds of additional, loose clippings are here, as well.

    Attorney General's Conference on Court Congestion and Delay In Litigation is one inch of correspondence and printed materials concerning Powell's work on this conference, created by the Attorney General of the United States.

  • President's Commission On Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice 1965-1967.

    President's Commission On Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice(1.75 cu.ft.) begins with a record volume comprising correspondence, memoranda, report drafts, and a printed copy of the supplemental statement to the commission's report. Some of the contents of this volume are duplicated in the unbound records that follow. These other records include subseries of correspondence, memoranda, notes, chapter drafts of the report, drafts of the supplemental statement and a printed version of the report. Miscellaneous documents, printed materials, and clippings complete the series.

    Based on the awareness of the crime problem that Powell had articulated in many of his speeches as ABA President, President Johnson appointed Powell to this commission. Though this diverse committee agreed on many solutions to the crime problem, there were differences among the commissioners. Powell's differing views on the questions of wire tapping and certain Supreme Court decisions led to his drafting of the "Supplemental Statement on Constitutional Limitations," published over the names of seven commission members.

    Powell anticipated criticism of the inconsistencies between the views expressed in his work on this commission and some of his Supreme Court opinions. In an annotation (written after Powell was appointed to the Supreme Court) to the introduction to the record volume in this series he wrote, "When I accepted appointment to this Commission I knew little criminal law as I never practiced it . . . and some of my views have changed."

  • Blue Ribbon Defense Panel 1969-1970.

    Blue Ribbon Defense Panel (1.66 cu.ft.) contains the records of Powell's service on the commission President Nixon created to recommend reforms in the structure and operation of the Pentagon. It was to evaluate the organization and management of the Department of Defense, but not delve into questions of broad national policy. This body was formed in the face of mounting criticism of cost overruns in weapons systems and the stalemate in Vietnam.

    As in his work on the crime commission, Powell expressed his views separately from those of the panel's report. This time these expressions took two forms. The first was Powell's thirty-five page statement (signed by seven of the sixteen panelists), "Shifting Balance of Military Power." Drafts and three different printed versions are included in subseries 5.5(c) "Supplemental Statement." The other separate expression was Powell's reaction to the war in Vietnam. This was sent confidentially to President Nixon as the memorandum, "Political Warfare." A draft and final version are included under that title in the 5.4 Subject Files. (Another copy is in the "Speeches, Statements and Writings" series of the II. Personal Papers).

    Forms of materials which make up this subseries include: correspondence; memoranda; notes; subject files; drafts and printed versions of the report; and printed materials. The Commission's Southeast Asian, European and NORAD inspection trips are documented in the subject files.

  • Richmond Charter Commission 1947-1957.

    Made up of correspondence; speeches and statements; lists of persons who testified about the charter; and clippings. Powell's service on this commission was his only venture into electoral politics. Richmond had an ineffective form of government based on a federal model--a bicameral city council and a mayor with veto power. State law authorized the election of a charter commission to propose a new form of government, to be submitted to the electorate by referendum. Powell was elected to the Commission and chosen as chairman by his fellow commissioners. The city manager style of government proposed by the commission was enacted by referendum on November 7, 1947.

  • Richmond School Board 1950-1962.

    Anyone delving into the Richmond School Board series with the hope of finding thorough documentation of the desegregation of Richmond public schools, or of Powell's contemporaneous thoughts on desegregated education, is bound to be disappointed. There is documentation of the desegregation struggle, but it is mostly limited to newspaper clippings. There is expression of Powell's thinking on race, but it is mostly from the perspective of a 1975 Supreme Court Justice, whose social views had markedly changed in the intervening decades.

    Like the other parts of this series, the bulk of the contents of the record volume are devoted to the budgetary process, teacher salaries, raising the quality of education and the inclusion of education against communism in the school curriculum. Powell speeches on educational matters are also present.

    The titles of the various parts of the correspondence subseries mirror interests and activities noted in the record volume: General; Course on International Communism; Report on Trip to Russia; and Speech to Richmond Public School Teachers. The "Trip to Russia," in the subseries title above, was Powell's visit in the summer of 1958 with a delegation of lawyers representing the American Bar Association. They attended conferences and exchanged views with Soviet lawyers and judges. Upon his return, Powell spoke and wrote about his experiences in a variety of settings. The same month he returned from this trip, August 1958, he reported to the Richmond School Board. The Board published the report in pamphlet form under the title, "Soviet Education--A Means Towards World Domination: Report on Trip to Soviet Union (July - August 1958)." The "Trip to Russia" correspondence consists of cover letters which accompanied some of the distributed copies of the reports and thank you letters from recipients of the report.

    There are also subseries of speeches, statements, subject files, printed materials and clippings. The folder titles in the container list for the speeches, statements and subject files generally reveal their contents. The "Desegregation--General" subject file consists mostly of speeches and statements by persons other than Powell. The "Desegregation--Chandler School" subject file contains correspondence from homeowners living near that school. There is no record here of the debate at which Powell silenced the crowd trying to prevent black attorney Oliver Hill from speaking. The "Desegregation--Lawsuits" file contains documents regarding legal actions taken by "certain Negro children and their parents" in which the school board was named.

    The "Publications by Richmond Public Schools" include: City of Richmond Superintendent of Schools annual reports for the years 1950, 1951 and 1954; and the pamphlet, "Quality in Education: A National Necessity," the printed version of Powell's February 1958 address to Richmond Public School teachers.

  • Virginia Industrialization Group 1958-1964 & 1980.

    Four inches of correspondence and memoranda from Powell's membership in this private group of businessmen organized to promote industrial development in the state. Also included is a June 1980 informal history of the group documenting its role in opposing massive resistance. This was written by the group's former chairman--and former Norfolk and Western Railway Company president--Stuart Saunders.

    Realizing that few businesses would come to Virginia until the school crisis was resolved, the group held a dinner meeting on December 19, 1958, attended by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General, at which the relationship of the school crisis to industrial development was discussed. Though Powell was out of town at the time of the meeting, his memorandum of December 15, 1958 to Saunders and vice- chairman J. Harvie Wilkinson suggested how the group's presentation to the high state officials should proceed.

  • Virginia State Board of Education 1961-1969.

    One foot of correspondence, speeches, subject files, printed materials and clippings from Powell's service on this board. Powell shared the board's interest in many areas including: raising the level of public education, the role of public television in the classroom, continuing education of teachers and research in education. All of these topics are documented here.

    As President of the State Board of Education in the socially tumultuous year of 1968, Powell wrote the pamphlet, "Citizenship Education as Law; Disorder, Extremism and Civil Disobedience." It was published and distributed by the board as part of the Citizenship Education Project initiated by Powell. Included here are correspondence, minutes and documentation of the "Citizenship Education Project."

    As in the Richmond School Board papers, the area of racial desegregation, which formed the backdrop to this entire period, is only lightly documented here. As the Virginia General Assembly had directed the state board to authorize local school boards to resume control of pupil placement, few records concerning desegregation were created by state board members.

    The subject file "Prince Edward County School Board Suit" does involve state board action in desegregation. This file includes a 1961 memorandum prepared by Powell's Hunton & Williams law firm partner George C. Freeman, Jr. This document is notable for two reasons. The topic, "The State Board of Education's Power to Operate Free Public Schools In Localities Where Local School Boards Cannot or Will Not Continue To Operate Them" suggests that Powell considered the idea of circumventing the General Assembly's local school board option policy. The memorandum is also interesting as an early example of the reliance Powell would come to have on his law firm partners in areas beyond the conduct of Hunton & Williams business. In drafting his American Bar Association presidential speeches, in his work on the revision of the Virginia Constitution, and in preparation for hearings on his Supreme Court nomination, the counsel of his law partners informed his public statements and writings.

    On July 1, 1964, Powell was part of the unanimous vote to extend the deadline for state tuition grants for children attending private, all-white schools. His handwritten revisions to the draft of the minutes of this meeting show Powell's anticipation of the criticism that he and the board were to receive for taking this action.

    2.5 inches of chronologically arranged correspondence about Powell's service on this body which helped plan and carry out a 750th anniversary celebration at the College of William & Mary in May 1965. Powell gave a speech at this event. Though there is overlap in the documentation, this event is not to be confused with the 750th anniversary celebration of Magna Carta which took place in England a month later. Powell attended that event as President of the ABA and also spoke on that occasion. Documentation of this later event and speech are located in the American Bar Association series. Publications that Powell read in preparing these two speeches can be found in series "14.3.7 --Magna Carta."

  • Commission On Constitutional Revision (Virginia) 1968-1971.

    Consists of two feet of papers and records concerning Powell's work as a member of this commission charged with the task of thoroughly revising the 35,000 word 1902 constitution. Included in this series are: general correspondence and memoranda; "public comment" correspondence and memoranda; memoranda from the Commission's executive director, A.E. Dick Howard (additional Howard correspondence concerning the Commission is in the general correspondence subseries of the Personal Papers subgroup); Powell's handwritten meeting notes; subcommittee files; drafts and text of the new constitution; and printed materials and clippings.

    The commission worked in subcommittees and Powell, and his fellow State Board of Education member, Colgate Darden, were assigned to the subcommittee on education. It is clear from inspecting these papers, however, that Powell had significant input in several other areas, most notably taxation. (Virginia's pressing need to be able to borrow money more easily was an important force behind undertaking the revision at that time.) In fact, there are few records about education in these papers and none specifically about the work of the education subcommittee. Powell and Darden's work can be seen in the drafts of the constitution in which the State Board of Education is given a greater role in setting standards, and in which cities and counties are required to keep their schools open.

Board Memberships 1937-1994.

The subgroup Board Memberships contains records and papers concerning many of the numerous civic, educational and corporate boards to which Powell belonged. Powell served as counsel--often pro bono or at reduced hourly fees--for many of the civic organizations of which he was a board member. He served as general counsel to several of the corporations whose boards he would later join. As a result, records of some actions taken by Powell as legal representative were interfiled with records of his board membership. As previously mentioned, all other files concerning clients represented by Powell are retained by Hunton & Williams. This subgroup, therefore, is at least as important for its documentation of Powell's lawyering as it is in recording his work as a board member. In addition to representing these firms in specific actions, in nearly every instance Powell was involved in revising basic organizational documents, especially charters and bylaws. He resigned from all corporate boards when his nomination to the Supreme Court was confirmed.

  • Civic 1940-1966.

    Series 1. Civic, 1940-1966 is 4.5 cubic feet in extent and includes the subseries:
    8.1.1 Family Service Society, 1940-1957; c.2 in.
    8.1.2 Retreat for the Sick, 1941-1965; c. 3 in.

    8.1.8 Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church, 1961-1966; .5 in.

    Subseries "8.1.3 Richmond Memorial Hospital" is especially noteworthy as Powell was one of the incorporators of the hospital, in addition to serving as counsel and trustee. One of his most significant appellate cases involved the hospital. City of Richmond v. Richmond Memorial Hospital established the tax exempt status under Virginia law of community-type hospitals. This case is extensively documented in the papers.

In what is considered to be one of the first corporate leveraged buy outs, Powell's team of attorneys completed the merger on November 30, 1962. The newly combined company took the name Ethyl Corporation.

    Series 9.1 Virginia Democrats for Eisenhower, 1952-1956; .5 cu. ft. includes: correspondence; statements, notes and drafts of speeches; campaign organization materials; and printed materials and memorabilia. Subseries 9.1.1 Correspondence, 1952-1953, contains evidence of Powell's planning of radio programs; aid in precinct and block organization; correspondence with members of the media; and advice on Eisenhower television appearances. Documentation found here shows Powell's prescient awareness of the power of the then young television medium in political campaigns. His notes and drafts in other parts of this series demonstrate that he also was aware of the power of negative campaign advertising. By October 1952, Powell confesses that his involvement in the campaign allows him to practice law "only three or four hours per day."

    Subseries 9.1.3 Notes and Drafts of Speeches contains mostly handwritten notes dealing with the 1953 general election in Richmond and surrounding counties, and with the 1956 Presidential Campaign. Logistics for a visit to Richmond by President Eisenhower are also found here. The subseries 9.1.6 Printed Materials contains campaign literature from both the 1952 and 1956 Presidential elections.

Supreme Court of the United States 1968-1994 (bulk 1972-1987).
  • Papers re Nomination and Confirmation 1968-1971.

    Powell had been considered for a position on the Supreme Court prior to his actual appointment. Thus, Series 10.1 Papers re Nomination and Confirmation, 1968-1971; 4 cu. ft., begins three years prior to his joining the Court. Subseries 10.1.1 Pre-appointment includes both general correspondence about the consideration of Powell as a candidate for the Court, and papers related to Powell's advocacy on behalf of Clement F. Haynsworth, Jr. for Supreme Court appointment in 1969.

    The correspondence includes letters to Powell urging him to accept a nomination if offered and Powell's consistent reply that he did not want this position. There are also copies of letters that supporters had sent to President Nixon urging Powell's appointment. Included here is Powell's December 12, 1969 letter to Attorney General John N. Mitchell stating that he did not want to be considered for the Supreme Court.

    The Haynsworth materials consist primarily of Powell correspondence attempting to rally support for the confirmation. The materials also include letters to legislators who had announced their opposition to Haynsworth's nomination in an attempt to change their minds.

    The remainder of this series deals with Powell's October 1971 nomination and his December 1971 Senate confirmation hearings. Included here are subseries of correspondence, memoranda, subject files, printed materials and clippings.

    The correspondence includes categories of: general correspondence; congratulatory correspondence for both nomination and confirmation; letters of endorsement; resignations from corporate boards following confirmation; and crank letters. The letters of endorsement, and the memoranda concerning these letters, document the extent to which Orison Marden, Ross Malone, and Whitney North Seymour--like Powell, all ABA past presidents-- organized the state-by-state solicitation of letters supporting Powell's nomination from members of the bar.

    The memoranda include general memos and others on such subjects as the letters of endorsement and Powell's personal data statement. The data statement file contains both Joe Carter's reply to Attorney General Mitchell's request for information on Powell, and Powell's reply to Counsel to the President John W. Dean, III's questionnaire. Attachments listing corporate clients and detailing personal finances are also here. Later additions to this series are two separate Powell retrospectives (1975 and 1981) recounting the events leading to his nomination and his halting acceptance.

    The subject files contain evidence of the thoroughgoing preparation made by Powell and his team of Hunton & Williams attorneys (primarily Joe Carter, George C. Freeman, Jr., John Shenefield and Allen Goolsby) in preparation for the Senate confirmation hearings. Powell and his team gathered and disseminated endorsements; prepared memoranda on anything in Powell's background that might come under close Senate scrutiny; and sought advice concerning the restructuring of Powell's investments.

    The printed materials are two copies of the published transcripts of the Rehnquist and Powell confirmation hearings. A foot-and-a-half of clippings about Powell's nomination and confirmation complete this series.

      This subseries (14 cu. ft.)can be seen as a continuation of the Personal Papers, 1929-1987--Series 2.1.1 GeneralCorrespondence, 1932-1971. Like that earlier series, this correspondence ranges widely in correspondents and subjects. Unlike the earlier letters, Powell is much more reticent to give opinions on political and legal matters because of his position on the Supreme Court. Many exchanges with the same correspondents continue on from the earlier series.

    • Chief Justice and Associate Justices.

      This subseries contains three kinds of correspondence with and about Powell's fellow justices: correspondence with the Chief Justice; correspondence with the other Associate Justices; and correspondence about William O. Douglas' retirement. The correspondence with Chief Justice Burger is extensive, filling half-a-foot of shelf space. These letters cover a range of topics from the Court Christmas Party to the assignment of cases. The origins of the "cert pool," a distributive way of reviewing cases for potential hearing, are treated here. Other topics include the selection of clerks; Justices' salaries and benefits; and an array of personal and administrative matters.

      The "Memoranda To Clerks" file provides a unique perspective on the operation of the Powell chambers. More than just writing assignments, these memoranda demonstrate the role of the law clerk in the Powell chambers. Powell's respect and affection for these young men and women is evident here. The memoranda contain as much advice and philosophy as they do work assignments and schedules.

  • Subject Files 1972-1987.

    Subject Files, 10 cubic feet, contains files in three categories: general; those concerning specific court business; and records of Powell's entertaining in the Supreme Court Building.

    • General.

      The "General" subject files treat a variety of subject matters. There are two alphabetical groupings here with no obvious distinction in content. A small amount of the correspondence centers around dealings with individuals on specific topics. Other correspondence continues his longtime relations with associations including the American Bar Association, the American Bar Foundation and Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Correspondence regarding the clubs to which he belonged is also present. Research files for possible speeches are here, as are housekeeping records like address files. Files on specific topics not related to the Court, such as Powell's published memorandum entitled "Attack On American Free Enterprise System," are here, as well. Fully half-a-foot of papers concerning media criticism is here. His response to an erroneous report by CBS news correspondent and Powell friend, Fred Graham, is part of this portion of the subject files. He corresponded, and kept a clipping file, about the controversial book about the Supreme Court, The Brethren.

      This subseries contains subject files about day-to-day Court administration and operation. Included here is almost a foot of files on Powell's service on the Court's budget committee. There is an equal amount of documentation concerning disqualification problems. These files deal with actual and potential conflicts of interest concerning cases that Powell might have heard as a member of the Supreme Court. The conflicts primarily involved Hunton & Williams retained clients, and companies in which Powell had investments.

      A third portion of this subseries is approximately a foot of material related to the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, which required detailed financial disclosure by federal judges. The resolution of conflicts between compliance with the Disqualification Act of 1974 and this newer law is documented here.

      The "Word Processing Committee" files, along with the related "Linda Blandford" file, reveal the role of Justice Powell in automating the drafting and printing of opinions within the court. Powell saw to it that Ms. Blandford, a secretary in his chambers, was recognized and compensated for her role in the development of Atex, the Court's first automated information system.

      There is extensive documentation of Powell's service on the committee that reviewed Supreme Court rules, and the commission that examined the workload of the National Court of Appeals system. Correspondence with Supreme Court officers such as the Chief Deputy Clerk, the Marshal's Office and the Social Secretary of the Court are also found here.

      Though Justice Powell refrained from making public or private statements about Court opinions, there is a file present entitled "Correspondence as to Court Opinions." Powell's side of the correspondence is primarily to say that Justices generally do not comment on cases. See see the correspondence at 10.2.1 with such trusted friends as Colgate Darden, Paul Freund, Gerald Gunther and Anthony Lewis for substantive discussions of cases.

      The mutual bond between Justice Powell and his clerks, was maintained through the annual clerks' reunion. These reunions included a dinner in the Supreme Court Building and brunch at the Alibi Club. The plans for these occasions dominate this subseries. There are also papers relating to the several dinners that Jo and Lewis Powell hosted at the Supreme Court Building for the other Justices and their spouses.

  • Supreme Court Cases 1972-1987.
    • Case Files 1972-1987. 365-685/, Box-folder

      For the contents of these boxes, see this spreadsheet at the Powell Archives website.

      The series Case Files include most of the cases in which writs of certiorari were granted(i.e., cases the court agreed to hear) during Powell's fifteen and one half years on the court. Cases not documented are those from which Powell recused himself or those in which he did not participate because of absence from the court due to illness. In all, there are approximately 2500 cases (140 cu.ft.) here. Powell wrote in some 500 opinions. In about half of these cases, Powell wrote the majority opinion. The remainder were concurring and dissenting opinions.

      It is important to note that most cases in which writs of certiorari were denied or that were disposed of by per curium order are most often not documented here except as they are mentioned in the "order lists" discussed below. Records of these cases were destroyed in routine records maintenance by order of Justice Powell.

      The files are arranged by Supreme Court terms. Note, however, that cases are often granted certiorari during one term, but decided in the next term. (Thus case 82-206 is found in October Term 1983 -- the term during the decision in the case was announced.) Additionally special application cases -- often involving stays of execution -- are found in each term. Cases for which the Supreme Court has original jurisdiction - - cases which come directly to the Court without having been heard in a lower court -- are also included.

      The documentation for each case varies from one thin folder to almost 2 feet of materials for the Bakke case. Forms of materials include: "pool" memoranda, docket sheets noting certiorari votes; bench memoranda prepared by clerks; bench notes from the hearing of oral arguments; notes from the Justices' private conferences; inter-chamber correspondence; drafts of opinions; printing of draft opinions; and printed "slip" opinions. News clippings were sometimes added to the files by Powell chambers staff.

      The files are arranged by Supreme Court terms which begin each October and typically end in June (e.g., a decision announced at the end of October Term 1975 would be rendered in May or June 1976). Within each term, the cases are arranged by Supreme Court docket number.

    • Ancillary Case File Materials.
      • Annotated Slip Opinions, 1973-1990. 686-687, Box

        These are some forty five Supreme Court slip opinions that Justice Powell annotated as he read or re-read them. Nine of these are from after Powell retired from the Court. A spreadsheet listing the cases for which there are annotated slip opinions is available on the Powell Archives website.

      • Memoranda Re Stay Applications, 1972-1981. 688-692, Box

        These memoranda were prepared for Justice Powell by his clerks or other Supreme Court clerks. The clerks briefed Powell on the facts and merits of the applications and made recommendations for action.

        These files contain listings of cases considered for certiorari or appeal, and applications for admission to the Supreme Court Bar. Brief summaries of actions are often included. Copies of the Court's printed certiorari decisions with comments and dissents are also found in these files.

      • Card Index to Case Files, 1972-1987. 703-707, Box

        This card index, keyed to the names in case titles, was created by Powell secretary Sally Smith. It is a cumulative index and is arranged alphabetically.

  • Speeches, Writings, and Interviews 1972-1987. 708-738, Box

    The series Speeches, Writings and Interviews, 16 cu. ft., includes the subseries: "Bound Speeches, 1971-1989," "Speech Files, 1972-1987," and "Speech Materials". The "Speech Materials" are memoranda, clippings and other printed materials arranged by subject. These were used for speech ideas and factual documentation.

    The "Speech Files" include: drafts and reading copies of Powell speeches; research materials used in preparing an address; correspondence preceding and following the speech; and records concerning lodging and travel.

    • Bound, 1971-1989. 708-710, Box

      There are three volumes divided by years as follows: 1971-1977; 1977-1984; & 1985-1989. The last volume contains several years of Powell's retirement from the Court. Each volume has a table of contents. Volume one includes an introduction by Powell. All but a handful of the bound speeches are duplicated in the Speech Files section below. The Speech Files, by contrast, contain many speeches not included in the bound volumes.
